“A prominent email marketing firm is suspending its services for crypto customers due to what it sees as a security threat”–Paul Ebeling
According to a new blog post, Mailchimp has temporarily shut down crypto-related accounts in response to several types of attacks targeting digital asset firms.
“Across the tech industry, malicious actors are increasingly deploying an array of sophisticated phishing and social engineering tactics targeting data and information from crypto-related companies.
In response to a recent attack targeting Mailchimp’s crypto-related users, we’ve taken proactive measures to temporarily suspend account access for accounts where we detected suspicious activity while we investigate the incident further.”
Mailchimp says accounts were not suspended solely for being in the crypto industry, despite some in the space claiming the contrary.
The company says it plans to update its terms of service to better serve crypto-related firms.
“We took this action to protect our users’ data, and then acted quickly to notify all primary contacts of impacted accounts and implement an additional set of enhanced security measures. We did not suspend accounts based on their industry, and we are committed to continuing to serve crypto companies.

Editor’s Note: The market cycle is a naturally occurring phenomenon, attributable to human psychology, and has repeated itself time and time again, though with some variations, in the lives of nearly all market traded instruments. This cycle repeats itself to varying degrees but is fairly accurate in representing the shift between market sentiments of euphoria and pessimism, and an acknowledgment of this natural phenomenon is Key to profiting from any traded instrument, including Bitcoin. My workd show a return to the mean and then all-time highs in here. Tune out fear.
