To make the results more robust, the 24 candidate exchanges were filtered further to exchanges with at least 50 symbol pairs and at least 20 days of historical 1-h OHLCV data. Therefore, we resorted to an automated detection approach using anomaly detection. Data points which do not conform to the rest of a dataset are often referred to as anomalies or outliers. Anomaly detection is the process of identifying these non-conforming points Chandola et al.
Anomaly detection techniques can be broadly categorised into supervised and unsupervised anomaly detection. The latter hinges on the ability to acquire an adequately sized training set, something which is often challenging. Conversely, unsupervised techniques rely on the assumption that anomalies are a rare occurrence in the data to prevent an excess of false signals.
There are various types of anomalies, which have been grouped into three major categories by Chandola et al. Point anomalies are merely points in the data which are anomalous to the rest of the data. Collective anomalies, on the other hand, refer to a situation in which one single data point may not be anomalous by itself. Instead, a co-occurrence or temporal proximity of anomalous data points might indicate behavior that is anomalous e.
For example, a warm temperature in the winter would be anomalous, but in the summer would be considered normal. In the context of this paper, unsupervised anomaly detection will be the focus, as no labelled training data is currently available for cryptocurrency pump-and-dump schemes see Discussion. Conditional anomalies consider contextual information about the setting Song et al. This is described through indicator variables , of which the values may be directly indicative of an anomaly, and environment variables , whose variables are not directly indicative of an anomaly.
The indicator variables are determined to be anomalous depending on the values of the environmental variables. In the current context this means the goal is to locate the breakout indicators, with respect to the reinforcers Table 2. For the scope of this paper, we do not consider the reinforcer of whether a symbol pair was present on multiple exchanges, due to the amount of data available. Thus, the goal is to locate corresponding price and volume spikes of coins with a low market cap that are trading for other cryptocurrencies.
The anomaly detection technique utilised is a thresholding technique, inspired by previous research regarding denial of service attacks on a network Siris and Papagalou For a particular value, a simple moving average is computed by taking the average of previous values in a given time window, the length which is known as the lag factor. In this way, one can compare a value to the trend over a time period, as opposed to a singular value, allowing for the detection of local anomalies in comparison to recent history.
This type of thresholding algorithm, allows us to provide a functioning baseline which further research could then expand upon with more sophisticated algorithms. Additionally, as more is learned about cryptocurrency pump-and-dump schemes, it is likely that more domain information e.
If the high price at any given point is greater than the computed anomaly threshold for that point, then the point is determined to be anomalous. An instance x is a particular observation in the time series that is associated with the respective OHLCV values. The goal is to detect local conditional point anomalies, that is the co-occurrence of both a price anomaly and a volume anomaly. There are perhaps other contextual indicators that could be investigated, though for the scope of this paper, only the two mentioned above will be looked at.
The market cap of a coin is defined as its price times the supply, and represents a way of judging the popularity, or size, of a coin. The top ten coins from the dataset and the percent of the total market cap they account for are shown in Table 4. This section investigates various values for the different parameters and shows how changing these affects the results found, with the goal of providing a suggestion for balanced parameters. Hopefully, these parameters could then be taken to a real-time system, to be further monitored and tuned as time progresses.
It is possible to formulate expectations based on the domain information presented in earlier sections. Additionally, since this paper only simulates real-time detection, it is possible to look forward in time, and see which of the alleged pumps were followed by a marked drop in price, which could be an indication of users dumping their coins, making it more likely that the preceding pump was the result of nefarious activity i. While these may be interesting points to investigate, making the parameters stricter could help reduce false positives i.
Ultimately the goal is to find a set of balanced parameters that filter the points detected down to a more reasonable number that can then be further assessed by humans. Figure 4 shows an example of an annotated candlestick chart using the initial parameters. We increased the estimation window to 24 h, so it required a more drastic change in comparison to the average. This led to detecting alleged pump-and-dumps over 20 days, about 0.
With the information gained from the previous two parameter sets, we attempted to find a balance between the two. This resulted in about 1. An illustration of how the percentage of symbols analysed relates to the percentage of pumps detected is shown in Fig. Breaking down the pump-and-dumps on a symbol level allows for a look into which cryptocurrencies, are disproportionately often affected, and hence more vulnerable Table 6.
This is consistent with the notion that specific coins may be targeted more often than others. Also interesting to note is that five of the top ten most pumped coins were pumped on the Bittrex exchange. Further research could perhaps investigate the properties of these coins, in an attempt to see if there are links between the most pumped coins. The individual spikes have been muted in the figure, to highlight only the pump-and-dumps. The resulting graph depicts rather suspicious trading activity, with many periods of lower price and volume, followed by significant spikes in both.
During the 9-day period shown eight pumps were detected. Regardless of whether it is directly the result of nefarious activity, it is still a pattern which raises question. A core test of a pump-and-dump identification system is its real-world detectability. In Case 1 Fig. As a result of their coordinated efforts a large price and volume spike is visible, beginning exactly at the time at which the announcement took place.
The chart depicts the results of a pump-and-dump promoted by the group Moonlight Signal , which was signalled to commence at 4 pm UTC on the 17th of August. Exchange: Binance. Once again, the warning signals of corresponding price and volume spikes are present, and the system correctly marks the strange activity at the announced starting time as fraudulent.
In this case we also observe the price and volume beginning to increase just prior to the announcement time, perhaps indicating insider trading by the group leaders. The chart depicts the results of a pump-and-dump promoted by the group Moonlight Signal , which was signalled to commence at 4 pm UTC on the 21st of August. The pump announcement in this case was given on the 4th of September , at p. Once again, we observe corresponding price and volume spikes Fig.
The reason for this is that the price continued to climb for a while after the pump, instead of immediately dumping. Thus, we can observe that sometimes the momentum caused by a pump group may actually persist for a period of time in this case about 24 h. The chart depicts the results of a pump-and-dump promoted by the group Moonlight Signal , which was signalled to commence at p.
While our system correctly marked the corresponding price and volume spikes at the specified time, it failed to identify them as being the result of a pump-and-dump. In Case 4 Fig. Similarly, to Case 3, our system again fails to mark the anomalous spikes as a pump-and-dump, for the same reason of the price not dipping quickly enough afterwards. In order to correctly identify these cases in which the price maintains momentum for some time after the announcement, a potential improvement could be made to the algorithm whereby decreasing volume is also taken into consideration.
This paper attempted to introduce to the crime science community the problem of cryptocurrency pump-and-dump schemes. With cryptocurrencies becoming increasingly popular, they are also becoming a more likely target for criminal activity. Cryptocurrency pump-and-dump schemes are orchestrated attempts to inflate the price of a cryptocurrency artificially. We identified breakout indicators and reinforcers as criteria for locating a pump-and-dump and investigated the data using an anomaly detection approach.
We were also able to show that using a limited set of parameters it is possible to detect pumping activity in the data as well as subsequent dumping activity. Moreover, we monitored two pump-and-dump groups in order to obtain several cases of real life pump-and-dump schemes which we then applied our detection algorithm to, in order to demonstrate its performance in real scenarios. Besides locating potential pump-and-dumps, we found evidence of clustering in the data.
Translated to the environmental criminology literature, this pattern resembles repeat victimisation Farrell and Pease ; Kleemans ; Weisel ; Farrell The clustering can be exploited for preventative purposes since efforts can be concentrated towards the clusters, finding out what makes them attractive targets, and implementing strategies to help mitigate potentially nefarious activity.
Consider an exchange which requires additional verification for users trading certain symbol pairs which are determined to be vulnerable. Such an intervention would increase the effort required to trade and hence to pump the vulnerable coin.
When considering how to increase the risk, an example could be a system in which the automated detection of anomalous trading activity is used in cooperation with humans. A major challenge for pump-and-dump prevention might lie in coordinating the efforts between private bodies such as cryptocurrency exchanges and government bodies. While governments are catching up on the problem and have allocated more resources to the mitigation of pump-and-dump schemes, exchanges might have little incentive to cooperate because they benefit from trading activity on their platforms.
Finally, a move towards more government regulation—in our data less regulated exchanges were targeted disproportionately more frequently—might undermine the very concept of cryptocurrency trading as a decentralised exchange without government interference. In the current investigation, we resorted to publicly available data and provided a framework for the future analysis of cryptocurrency pump-and-dumps.
However, several limitations merit attention. First, the accuracy of flagging an alleged pump-and-dump is dependent upon the parameters chosen and cannot be ascertained absent a ground truth of confirmed pump-and-dumps. Our analysis should be treated as a first attempt to place the topic in the academic literature. Second, the dataset only covers 20 days of data with hourly granularity.
While this was sufficient for the scope of this paper, future research would want to attempt to collect more substantial quantities of data and at a smaller granularity e. Third, as with any flagging system, there is a decision to be made how many false positives are acceptable i.
Arguably, an exchange would want to avoid announcing a coin of being used for fraudulent activity if this were not the case. This compromise is particularly complex in real-time settings so an interesting alternative avenue for future research might be to move towards the identification of early warning signals that can highlight suspicious trading at a point in time where the costs of false positives are relatively low e.
In order to minimise the likelihood of Type I errors i. Thus, a cost for both Type I and Type II errors needs to be determined, and a balance struck between the two. Thus, a desirable area for future research would be to create of a database of confirmed pumps.
While labour intensive to do in a fully manual way, the creation of such a database could likely be achieved through a smart combination of automated and manual tasks e. Such a database could be used as a means of testing the accuracy of a detection algorithm, as well as allowing for the use of supervised machine learning methods. Two lines of research seem particularly interesting for an extension of cryptocurrency pump-and-dump identification.
First, identifying vulnerable coins and understanding the characteristics of those coins that are repeatedly targeted in more detail would allow for efficient resource allocation of detection systems e. Second, moving away from exchange trading data, the modus operandi of pump-and-dumps could be examined in more detail. A particularly promising path for future studies could be the linguistic analysis of the coordination of pump-and-dumps in online chat groups, on the one hand; and the means by which misinformation about specific coins is spread on, for example, social media, on the other hand.
This paper has attempted to provide a first look into research for cryptocurrency pump-and-dump schemes. Ultimately, it is the hope that the information presented in this paper will serve useful as a basis for further research into the detection of these fraudulent schemes.

However, organizers need to be careful that they do not pre-pump the coin. If the coin is the pre-pumped, i.
Organizers need to be very careful to not pre-pump, i. Once the group administrators have purchased, the information of the coin is passed to paid members and then to the outer participants of the scheme. If the pump is noticed by other traders on the exchange which are not part of the group, they too will purchase it.
Organizers who bought coins in advance now sell or dump their coins on the outer circle which is still buying due to the pump. The quick sale brings the coin back to its initial value or lower resulting in heavy losses for those who purchased the token at the later stage of the pump.
However, at times it is noticed that pumps lift the price of the coin permanently or at least for a few days. The benefit is that celebrities have many followers, which leads them to influence the newcomers to the crypto market easily. Organizers select a coin, the celebrity is paid his or her fees to pump the given coin.
Although, overall this type of practice can harm the crypto space image on a longer run. If an influential person is asked by an anonymous person to dump on third-party coins, it could create an unstable market space. The lack of regulation in the cryptocurrency market gives rise to such practices. Hence, it is best to research coins that will last over the long term and their purpose before investing in them.
By trading and investing in higher volume cryptocurrencies, researching promising lower cap coins above a certain volume threshold, for instance 10,, 5,, etc. During the execution of Pump and Dump schemes various smaller investors get ripped of their funds, since they usually are the ones suffering from losses while the organizers see big gains.
For the cryptocurrency affected the scheme may cause a loss of trust by the community behind it and therefore may cause the project to suffer long term negative consequences. Chaincoin is a cryptocurrency that saw almost no trading volume until June Among others the YouTube channel HighOnCoins started to promote the coin causing a price increase of more than times on July 14, followed by a very sharp decrease in price.
The trading pattern of the cryptocurrency E-coin suggests that in January and February the coin has repeatedly become a target of Pump and Dump schemes. The well known internet entrepreneur John McAfee used to publish his coin of the day on Twitter in late December The announcement led to increases in the price of the mentioned coin, bringing McAfee under substantial criticism he may conduct this practice for his own financial benefit.
Soon after the price would fall again and return to the initial value or even below since previous regular investors lose trust in the project. In a pump and dump scheme, the price of a worthless asset-usually a penny stock with a low market cap-is artificially inflated through well-planned marketing. False statements, misleading statements, a large number of social media posts, co-signs, and other chicanery are used to get the word out that a worthless asset is actually a hot buy that investors do not want to miss out on the pump.
To support these claims, the price of the worthless asset is increasing rapidly due to the well-planned pump. Once investors get word about the worthless asset and see its price rising rapidly, more investors start to buy up shares of the stock . These individuals profit from selling the asset at or near its peak for many times more than the price they purchased it at.
When they begin to sell their shares of the overvalued asset, the price of the asset tanks and corrects to a more accurate and appropriate valuation. Once the coin is decided, organizers buy their load. It gives them a head start to receive the highest benefit from the spike.
However, organizers need to be careful that they do not pre-pump the coin. If the coin is the pre-pumped, i. Organizers need to be very careful to not pre-pump, i. Once the group administrators have purchased, the information of the coin is passed to paid members and then to the outer participants of the scheme.

If an influential person is asked by an anonymous person to dump on third-party coins, it could create an unstable market space.
The lack of regulation in the cryptocurrency market gives rise to such practices. The group gives a pump signal and indicates the target price. Relatively small injections are enough for the coin to move the price and draw the attention of real investors to it, who will no longer invest in response to a signal.
And as many traders wait till the coin will cost more more, in the end, they are in a huge loss because pump coins are very weak and can not increase with no outside interference.

Welcome to the era of “pump and dump,” where investors bummed to join a Telegram group, which soon grew from a few dozen random crypto. Nefarious crypto traders use secure messaging platforms like Telegram to orchestrate coin manipulation to make a quick buck — at the cost of. Last week, one group, WallStreetBets - Crypto Pumps, pulled off a $2 million scam, Bloomberg estimates, when it told its , Telegram.
