Unknown token deposits

What are these tokens and where do they come from

Updated over a week ago

Hi there 👋

It happens to receive, on some of its decentralized wallets or even on its exchange platforms, tokens that you never bought.

Most of these airdrops occur on your Binance Smart Chain (BSC) wallet. You can find them on the BSC Scan site by entering your address, then going to "BEP-20 Tokens Txns".

👉 The process is the same with the Ethereum blockchain: Etherscan → "ERC-20 Tokens Txns".

👉 And Polygon: Polygonscan → "ERC-20 Tokens Txns".

Most of the time, these deposits are related to “airdrops scams”, literally, scams. Malicious people hope that you will exchange them on their platform.

🚨 We strongly advise you not to touch them, because by connecting your wallet to their site, you could sign a transaction that would empty your wallet.

What to do with these tokens on Waltio?

We propose two solutions:

Number 1: Delete these transactions

Number 2: Add them to your list of worthless tokens (recommended)

💡 We are creating a list of all these scams tokens, in order to add them to our list of worthless tokens.
The list already has more than 300 tokens.

💡 If your earnings look totally inconsistent, it may come to an airdrop of a token named Alpaca, Whale, Vera, Stake, Alice, Dinu, Flux, SSX, KICK. We advise you to delete the deposits linked to this token. Here is an article that will help you identify them.

💡 If your gains looks totally inconsistent, and you can't find the token in the previous list, it may be that a fake one that bears the name of a real crypto creating a fake valuation is in your wallet.
