By leveraging expertise from trusted partners, Reservoir enhances its ability to detect and prevent spam and scam NFT collections.

Community Reporting
Reservoir actively encourages its community members to report any suspicious NFT collections or tokens they come across on the platform. This crowdsourced approach allows for efficient identification and immediate action against potential scams. You can report any collection or token you believe is spam here.

How to Use Spam Data
