Jack Dorsey, the co-founder and CEO of Twitter, has recently revealed that the company has created a special team who will be working on designing a public blockchain platform and open Twitter protocol, calling it “a future” for Twitter.
Fake news related to cryptocurrency, Coronavirus pandemic, and other fields that spread through social media like Facebook, Google, Twitter etc., are becoming a problem. That is why the European Commission urged the giants to strengthen measures against misinformation.
Twitter seems to be still vulnerable to hacks. A group of cyberattackers under the name ‘John Wick’ have gained access to the account of India’s Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Damodardas Modi and used it to promote a fake cryptocurrency schema.
The CEO of Ryanair, an Irish budget airline, Michael Kevin O’Leary (59-years of age), was involved in promoting another cryptocurrency scam without even knowing it. That made him turn extremely bearish and compare Bitcoin (BTC) itself to a scam.
Related to the growing number of Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrency scams using fake advertising, it becomes obvious that the industry needs regulation. Advertising influences people's purchasing decisions, therefore, good social engineering can turn it into a great instrument for luring customers into various digital currency-related scams.
Choosing cryptocurrency might sound a great idea for both short-term profits and long-term investments, however, there are a lot of scammers in the industry striving to take away one’s money. So one needs to take all precautions before putting in a penny.
While many community members complain that YouTube is demonstrating hostility to cryptocurrency-related projects, scammers using the platform to trick people prove such measures are somewhat reasonable.
