Bittrox.com – Is It a Scam or a Safe Site?

Bittrox.com is a website, which primary purpose is to convince users to invest in cryptocurrencies as it is a platform serving this purpose. Its main goal, however is to likely scam you out of your information as we have recently checked.

Once you open Bittrox.com, it seems just like any other crypto trading website although its particularly similar to one particular platform – Bittrex.com. Not only this, but also the site offers to buy and sell different cryptocurrencies at a very low rate. But when you start using it, several aspects of the site raise alarms that it could be a scam.

For instance, when you try to open the website itself, you may quickly notice that it is not HTTPS-secured:

This is almost mandatory if you are running a website, especially a site that is payment-related. Not only this, but the website also contains trackers and cookies, that can be used to obtain critical information from your computer, such as:

  • Your credit card details.
  • Name, address, etc.
  • BitCoin wallet access information.
  • Access to information from other sources.

In addition to this, we have found several different alarming details about this website, most of which are that this site’s owner is hiding his identity. Not only this, but the site’s server is also used for differenet websites and has been set up 31 days ago, which is way to little and young sites are often considered difficult to find trustworthy. Not only this, but the site itself redirects to the home page each time when you try to open “About Us” or its privacy policy and user agreement, which means that it could be lacking from the site. One more reason to avoid Bittrox.com.

What to Do With Bittrox.com

If you happen to encounter this website, in our opinion it is best to avoid it from your computer. The main reason for that is because this site is not the right place to conduct financial operation due to the lack of encryption it has. Furthermore, be advised that Bittrox.com is a site that should be checked thoroughly before you use it for a trading platform.
