The world of cryptocurrencies is in the midst of a real epidemic and the victim is Slovenian cryptocurrency



Social networks, notably Twitter and Telegram, have for some time been drowning in an irresistible deluge of fraud, trying to extract the most valuable cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ether from the desire to quickly win blind people. Fraudsters are helping to promise ten times more profits by misusing the names of world-renowned companies, most notably cryptocurrency exchanges, including "Slovenian" Bitstamp, and influential figures in the cryptocurrency and economy world.

Vitaly Buterin, the father of a prominent cryptocurrency and one of the most influential figures in the cryptocurrency world, changed his Twitter username some time ago due to an epidemic of scams that has besieged the network for some time Vitalik Non-ether donating, which means "Vitalik who gives no ether".

The change to Buterin's name was the result of fake Twitter profiles that expired by the age of 25, promising to return ten times the ether to anyone who sends cryptocurrency to that address to receive cryptocurrency.




An example of the issue of the well-known cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase. Sending 0.1 to 10 bitcoins to the address below will return one to 100, promises a rogue website that works with a real network of similar websites, where the Coinbase logo is replaced by another well-known merchant's logo of cryptocurrencies - Binance Stock Exchange and the logo of Tesla Motors electric car manufacturer.

This is a scam that has multiplied across borders in the last year and a half, mainly on the social network Twitter. Scammers create thousands of fake user profiles and repeat the promise made above on behalf of world-famous cryptocurrency exchanges like Binance and Coinbase, companies like Tesla and Microsoft, as well as cryptocurrency exchange founders and entrepreneurs like Elon Musk,

Last year, fraudsters also abused the name of the Bitstamp cryptocurrency exchange, founded by Slovenia's Neutz Codric and Damian Merlak:

As you can see from the Twitter post above, the keyword in such scams is I give (-Giving).

Potential scammers are trying to persuade a particular business or individual to donate hundreds or thousands of cryptocurrency units to bitcoin or ethereum to anyone who will dare and confirm their involvement by transferring between 0.1 and up to 5 bitcoins or ethers. Whoever "grabs" the train will also return ten times more and the rest will be returned to the original entrance.

In fact, no one gets anything back. All the money is raised by scammers who are still trying to convince their victims with a horde of fake Twitter profiles that others have received the promised cryptocurrencies and that the case is legitimate.




An example of a post on fake Twitter profiles that says in support of fraud that they really have more bitcoins back than they filed, and that this is undoubtedly the right thing to do.

Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world by trading volume, warned at the top of its Twitter account last February that consumers should never make such promises and will lose all the money they invest. They also point out that they (and other similar companies) will never ask users to send their cryptocurrencies anywhere:
