Is market manipulation a scam?


Like the title question, do you guys think all this talk of manipulation of bitcoin prices constitutes a scam? People have possibly lost money due to illegal behaviors of others. Seems like a scam to me. It certainly doesn’t help make bitcoin look good to the average person.

Agree or disagree?

Illegal, unfortunate and despicable but not truly a scam. Sadly.

I agree. Not a scam. No one is taking money from you without doing or selling something. Scams are when people talk you out of your money for nothing in return.

Plus no one can quite prove market manipulation every time. Sure some of it goes on, but it’s hard to prove.
