There are some really neat websites out there that can help us in our searches. Let’s take, for example, the Ethereum blockchain explorer to search for those who invested in BNB tokens. Browse to and search for the word “BNB.” Here you can see the address of the token contract and records of the transaction of tokens being transacted with buyers.

Navigate to the search result here.

If you click any of the transaction hashes, you can see the details of the token transaction. The first thing you will notice is the tag that identifies this as an Authorship token. You will also see that no Ether was transferred, just the contract code that makes up the token.

You can see the Contract Source and Read Smart Contract by clicking the contract address, which enables you to see the token name, the total supply available, and the owner’s address.

As with any blockchain with reasonable anonymity, it would be very difficult to trace the owner if no other information were provided. This would provide a potential fraudster with a way to eventually set up a token to steal money from the unsuspecting.
