About DAAG

Over the past few years, the rising growth and adoption of “crypto lending” has provided consumers with newfound financial freedom and opportunity thanks to the benefits of blockchain technology and decentralized financial protocols. Unfortunately, there are a number of bad actors in the space, whose actions not only weaken public perception of this new industry but above all, harm many investors and consumers.

These predatory “crypto-lenders”, such as Bulgaria-based Nexo.io, take advantage of consumers by denying them the transparency and insight needed to make informed decisions about their own financial futures.

It is only through increased consumer education and regulatory safeguards that we can put a stop to predatory crypto loans and ensure more consumers don’t fall victim to high-risk lending schemes.
