You can lose something important with a beta, but that is exactly the same as any officially released software, including Windows and macOS. You have to make your own judgements about any piece of software. And your own arrangements for safeguarding your data.
As far as I am aware there have been no issues regarding the safety of the data in Scrivener 3, beta or no beta.
And you would be wise to have comprehensive backups even when there is the official release.
Just as you should with any piece of software.
