And then perhaps one day they

And then perhaps one day they can raise the price to $1M and people will be forced to buy it at that price.

If the scam is so big, Why are people willing to buy? And if people are willing to buy, then how are they being scammed? A scam implies deception. If I offer you a bitcoin at $5k right now, that is not a scam, it's just extremely overpriced. If you voluntarily buy at that price, then clear terms of agreement are laid out and a fair transaction takes place.

If I offered you a Bitcoin at $90 and then charged you $5k, well that would be a scam.
