Technological advancements have inarguably revolutionized the way people approach the commercial space. However, technology’s rapid emergence is not without obstacles and trials. At any given time, there is no shortage of entities across the digital space that could be taking advantage of people who wish to enter the scene and conquer its summits. Recognizing how pressing this issue has become, particularly in the world of NFTs, Nicole Arbour takes center stage in the hopes of maneuvering people towards the right path.
Widely recognized for her genuine care and compassion for others, Nicole Arbour is a prominent comedian, actress, and recording artist who hails from Ontario, Canada. She is known for garnering over 1.5 billion views on her comedy videos, and receiving various awards and recognitions, such as a honorary star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, that speak volumes of her prowess and ingenuity. Now, Nicole Arbour is committed to one goal: to save people from engaging in fraudulent activities, especially in the emerging realm of NFTs.
In this day and age, NFTs are all the rage. They have been heavily regarded as today’s digital gold rush, which has attracted hundreds of thousands of people worldwide to invest in such a new trade. Thanks to celebrities and influencers from around the world, NFTs have successfully gained a foothold across this dog-eat-dog world.
However, with any emerging trend comes the birth of scams that are designed to prey on those who lack experience in the field. As a matter of fact, some projects offer NFT buyers big perks, such as the chance to win a Lamborghini and more. While these may prove the industry’s promising disposition and fast-growing nature, Nicole Arbour practices caution and encourages her followers to become wary of these too-good-to-be-true offerings.
In a colorful live stream on Instagram, Nicole Arbour expressed her disbelief when she found out that a potential business partner, Bitcoin Wine NFT, raised some red flags. The comedian discovered that the project would be selling NFTs for $1,000 with the promise of access to its wide variety of benefits, like access to a whitelist for upcoming NFT drops. However, none of these projects had any release dates, and they could not even tell Nicole what the projects were. This led her to walk away from the deal and from over $800,000 in profit, all to protect her followers.
“You would be paying $1,000 and you wouldn’t get anything, possibly” Nicole shared in her live stream. “I am not going to scam my audience,” she added.
In the same week when Nicole Arbour went live on Instagram, some celebrities and influencers had been the subject of these fraudulent actions. As a matter of fact, Logan Paul lost over $3,500,000 on fake Pokemon cards. On the other hand, Kim Kardashian was sued for promoting a pump-and-dump for EthereumMax. By taking a stand against these con artists, Nicole’s initiative of protecting her audience is a breath of fresh air.
“I want to encourage everyone to do research before purchasing any NFTs or crypto,” Arbour said on her Instagram. “There are a lot of great opportunities out there, but you have to know what to look for. Influencers are being offered crazy money to promote projects without knowing if it is a solid purchase.”
On a mission to address this, Nicole Arbour has taken it upon herself to educate others on the ropes behind NFTs and cryptocurrency. In this way, she hopes to lessen fraudulent activities that have continuously run rampant these days.
