  1. Loathsome and lascivious

  2. So…..you’ re saying it’s illegal to promote cryptocurrency without disclosing if you’re paid for it?

    1. Correct.

      Truth in Advertising laws require you to disclose that you are being compensated when you endorse a product or service – including, but not limited to cryptocurrency.
