As crypto goes mainstream, so do crypto frauds and scams. Hardly a day goes by without news about people suffering significant financial losses from elaborate constructs like FTX, to having all their funds locked up in disappeared trading platforms, to simply clicking a button they shouldn't have.

Deep down, many such scam and fraud schemes follow the same formulae behind non-crypto setups. However, specific regulatory and technical realities surrounding crypto these days do give rise to ingenious attack schemes unique to the Web3 ecosystem.

Flash loan attack? Ice phishing? MEV (maximal extractable value) frontrunning? What are they and how do they work? This sharing attempts to demystify commonplace crypto frauds and scams, explaining what they really are, in plain English.
