Do VPNs prevent DDoS attacks during crypto transactions?
Asked a year ago
Hi there. I have heard recently that crypto transactions are vulnerable to DDoS attacks. I therefore am looking for ways to protect myself during crypto transactions, and I am hoping that a VPN will be useful for this. Does anyone know if VPNs prevent DDoS attacks during crypto transactions? TYIA.

The truth is that you cannot be DDoSed when using a VPN. This is because, with a VPN, your IP address is hidden, and if someone tries to DDoS you, they will DDoS the IP address of your VPN server - not yours. Even if a DDoS attacker is successful with their attack, the best they can do is "bring down" the VPN's server. If this happens, you'll be automatically switched to another server of the VPN, so you can continue working on your crypto transactions in the same manner.
