Is Safe?

Here, I analyzed for malware and malicious content to check if it was legit or a scam:

I checked on Sucuri, and it returned as a medium security risk. Results: Sucuri scan for Sucuri results

Unmask Parasites cites 1 suspicious inline script:

(function(){window._cf_chl_opt={cvId: '3',cZone: "",cType: 'managed',cNounce: '87438',cRay: '84f15ff6ad4622...

I also checked on VirusTotal, and it is clean. Results: VirusTotal scan for VirusTotal results

URLVoid says passed all blocklist engines. Results: URLVoid scan for

In conclusion, we graded as no higher than relatively safe because of the suspicious inline script, and it forbade the Sucuri scan by returning a 403 Forbidden status. OVERALL GRADE: Relatively Safe.

I Prefer To Use Jesse Powell And Kraken

Kraken is one of the major cryptocurrency brokers/exchanges along with Coincase, Binance, and I like Kranken's founder the most, so I use Kraken.
