OnlyFans' Vanessa Sierra warns about the dangers of cryptocurrency
Vanessa Sierra is just one of a slew of reality stars to turn their fifteen-minutes of fame into a successful social media career.
And the Love Island Australia star, 26, used her platform to warn followers about the dangers of investing in cryptocurrency being promoted by influencers.
‘I’m sorry but I’m disgusted in the lack of morality and really want to warn people about investing in crypto when influencers are clearly being paid to promote it,’ she wrote on Wednesday.
In too deep?
Love Island Australia-turned-OnlyFans star Vanessa Sierra warned her followers about the pitfalls of taking cryptocurrency advice from clueless influencers on Wednesday
‘If someone is genuinely educated about crypts, they would post and talk a lot more in detail about blockchain rather than posting a “tip” with absolutely zero background Information.
‘I post because I’ve been into crypto since I was 12 years old and do hours of reading a day.
And I still don’t consider myself that knowledgeable.’
Vanessa said influencers promoting crypto are ‘money hungry’ and have ‘zero education or knowledge about how blockchain even works’.
Turning on her cohorts, she urged fans not to be fooled by the claims influencers make, to do their research and to stay away from new currencies.

‘Stick to the major coins’: Vanessa also urged her fans not to be fooled by the claims influencers make, to do their research and to stay away from new currencies’
‘Creating a new coin is not a difficult process and there is absolutely nothing to protect you if something goes wrong as coin developers can remain entirely anonymous,’ she said.
‘If you don’t know much about trading or if you’re new to crypto, stick to the major coins because that’s the only way not to get f***ed over.’
Elsewhere on her Instagram Story she addressed a fan who pointed out that Bitcoin (BTC) did not exist when she was 12.
Special interest: She later argued with a fan who pointed out that Bitcoin (BTC) did not exist when she was 12.
Vanessa acknowledged that they were correct but explained: ‘there were many different currencies prior tentang binary option to BTC that provided the framework for blockchain today’
What makes you an expert?
She explained she has ‘always been super interested’ in cryptocurrency, and would ‘read about it all for entire days when I was young and share what I found with my brother’
‘BTC was just the first one to prove SUCCESSFUL and I personally believe this is because it was the main form of currency on the dark web,’ she said.
‘I’ve always been super interested in this topic and I would read about it all for entire days when I was young and share what I found with my brother (my brother and I are both major weirdos and are still like this).’
This comes after Vanessa spoke to Channel Nine’s 60 Minutes in April about her earnings as an Only Fans model and her relationship with tennis star Bernard Tomic.
Her page on the website largely consists of softcore nude photos and ‘naughty DMs’ she privately sends paying subscribers at their request.
‘I won’t get into exact numbers, but if I wanted to retire today I could do so comfortably,’ she said.
Vanessa, who rose to fame after starring on the 2019 season of Love Island Australia, also brushed off reports that she’s using her tennis champion beau for his money.
‘I’ve had a lot of comments saying I’m using him for his money and I don’t think people realise how much money I earn to be honest.
It’s just funny,’ she said.
