This infographic gives information on how to prevent your bitcoin from being stolen, including tips for spotting threats and recommendations for digital security. This infographic's visuals effectively communicate that the subject is bitcoin theft. The visual language stays consistent throughout the design, and the palette of primary colors makes the content more engaging. This infographic contains an incredible amount of information, but the sheer amount of text decreases the likelihood that viewers will remain interested enough to absorb all of it. Except for a handful of misspellings, the content is largely error-free, although the lengthy paragraphs and complete sentence structure could be shortened to key phrases for the sake of readability. By eliminating repetition and editing out nonessential text, this infographic could communicate more effectively. Overall, a strong visual aesthetic is overshadowed by lengthy text. We'd give this a D.
