Kim Kardashian recently drew flak from the UK's financial watchdog over the promotion of a relatively unknown cryptocurrency on social media. Charles Randell, chair of the UK's Financial Conduct Authority, said on August 7 that Kardashian had asked her followers to speculate on a token in what "may have been the financial promotion with the single biggest audience reach in history" as she promoted the Ethereum Max token to over 250 million of her Instagram followers. However, experts warn against falling for such promotions as celebrities who get paid for them often have no knowledge about these 'pump and dump' schemes. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian make up to $500,000 for a single Instagram post or story to promote products. (Image: AP)
