Investing in cryptoassets?

Be on guard if an investment opportunity sounds too good to be true. There’s no such thing as high returns without risk.

The AMF publishes a list of websites, companies and individuals whose activities expose their clients to a high degree of risk. Be very careful before doing business with them or their representatives.
