Crypto Scammers Attack Porn Lovers

porn site viewers blackmail

The number of people who prefer to get hold of digital assets by stealing them is getting larger and larger. Moreover, the criminals in this sphere are becoming quite creative. This time the aim of scammers was the people who enjoy watching porn videos.

A bunch of viewers received a suspicious email from unknown people. The letter claimed that the attackers had videos from webcams of these viewers while they were watching adult videos. The criminals have supposedly installed a remote control program on the victims’ computers and filmed them secretly.

The letter also had a Bitcoin wallet address, where the payment in the amount of a little less than $2 thousand had to be transferred. Otherwise, the attackers threatened to reveal the videos. Bitcoin was chosen as the means of payment due to the fact that it is very easy and quick to transfer.

Even though, many people were pretty scared by this letter, it is likely to be a scam. The criminals did not even have a list of porn sites, the viewers of which became victims. Frankly speaking, it did not include any specific information which makes the whole situation quite doubtful.

The professor from the Cornell University posted an example of such a scam on his Twitter account.  

Experts advise people who became victims of crypto scammers not to react to their  messages and by any means not to send them money, since 99.9% of such attacks are just pure bluff. The attackers who can really break into security systems and steal digital assets are mostly aiming at large cryptocurrency exchanges.

We would like to remind you that the site Pornhub now accepts three digital currencies as a means of payment for videos and premium accounts.

Three Hellish Days for Cryptocurrency: Reasons of The Fall of The Currency and What To Do Next?

The current condition of the cryptocurrency market raises a number of question from traders. For the third day, the industry is either trying to revive Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, or just watching the collapse of the course.

The question of what caused the collapse of the market and what should do those who still have cryptocurrency  – makes world crazy. That is why, The Coin Shark have found answers for all of these questions and analysed per minute history of the fall of currency of Bitcoin.

The Chronology of the fall from 14th to 16th November

Wednesday, November,14 , Bitcoin break another 2018 bottom.  According to data of CoinMarketCap, at 11:34 UTC the rate of the first cryptocurrency behaved stably, being at $6 365.

Nothing foretold troubles, but at 17:19 UTC began unexpected fall, which last till the 19:19 UTC, where the price of BTC remained in half-dead condition at $5 765. Therefore, the capitalisation of the marked fell to $102 billion.

After that, Bitcoin started to resist. In 20:04 UTC the currency show vital signs, increased to $5 858. But still, the end of 14th November was not a happy ending. In 22:48 UTC was settled a new record – $5 568.

If compare the data with an individual market, then on a Bitstamp the price of the BTC has already dropped to $5 534, and on the Kraken – $5 510. Last two weeks, Bitfinex exchange trade Bitcoin more than $6 000 per each unit.

It turned out, that the 14th of November was still far from the end of BTC fall. According to CoinMarketCap, Thursday, November, 15, at 17:04 UTC, Bitcoin shocked everybody with the course of $5 358. On Bitstamp the first cryptocurrency down to $5 446, and on the Bitfinex – $5 638. At this point, this is the lowest course from the end of October, 2017.

The condition of the cryptocurrency market for the last year is unstable. It is accompanied by unexpectable highs, as well as painful falls.

What caused the collapse?

Just think about it, less than 24 hours ago, it was possible to sell the BTC on a thousand dollar higher. Probably, it is impossible to define why “the foundation was cracked” under the cryptocurrency, as for the example it can be done in a regular market. In the digital, the effect is first  seen and only than the reason becomes known.

Reason #1: Contagious effect

On the basis of past, the cause of the fall have psychological nature.
For example, people are massively starting to buy cryptocurrencies or fanatically selling.

Reason #2 : Direct correlation

Each financial currency  pegged to its government, as for the example dollar – to the US economy. Cryptocurrency pegged with the people, which are both buying or selling it.

Reason #3: Global Bitcoin influence

Ironically, but there is a theory, that the general condition of the cryptocurrency is affected by Bitcoin. The value of all digital market is estimated in $182 billion, the $90 billion of which belongs to BTC. The majority of cryptocurrencies  should be transferred especially in Bitcoin, before the sale.
And now imagine, that selling of Bitcoin will start simultaneously several major players of the market. After this, the BTC prices are lowering, and this cause  the panic attacks more than ones: “ Buy everything and as quickly as possible, while the price is low!” – this makes the course to grow.

What should do the owners of cryptocurrency: sell or wait?

It depends on the inner aspects of each owner. Even when the course is rising – it still have cycles of fall.

Who and how will affect the collapse of rate?  

Cryptocurrency is the unstable tool. It’s system decentralised and doesn’t have the management center. Digital currency should strengthen the positions, so it can give the accurate forecast for the future. But, it appeared, that this fall will have no affect on ordinary users.

There is no denying, that in a consequence many crypto-business will close. Cryptocurrency exchange are in the minimum risk area, as in such cases the number of transaction increases.

Most of all, miners and the owners of the mining field will suffer the most. Since, the profitability depends on the price of extracted cryptocurrency. Within recent events, it is clear that mining is unprofitable occupation.

Incredible History of Cryptospace Conquest

In November 2017, when the idea of conquering the news cryptospace arose, there were only 3 astronauts aboard our space ship.

The legend doesn’t tell us whether our commander understood the expression of another famous captain, “As you name the boat, so shall it float”, or just wanted us scare the hell of all the other participants of the crypto world, but he called it “The Coin Shark”.

Although our team had little idea how cryptospace ships are actually assembled, we decided to win new horizons at any price and began to prepare for the launch. This is the feeling when people ask you: “Are you ready?”, and you understand that you are not, but you still press “Start”, because when you fly up, there should be no fear.

3,2,1 – Start!

The first time we found ourselves in the universe of cryptocurrencies, we were in zero gravity. Not quite understanding how and where we should fly, we looked around to neighboring ships, until we found our own style of flying. Thanks to the imagination and talent of our graphic pilot, the shark has become the most enviable bride of the cryptospace: bright, original and visually “tasty”.

So we first learned what Bitcoin was and rejoiced at its first record mark of $20k. We got acquainted with the notion of “blockchain” and “mining,” we were no longer afraid of the word “volatility,” and we were happy to talk about this with our space readers.

Later we realized that in order to increase the speed, we need to expand our team. We began to focus on English-speaking users, and also added the Chinese version of The Coin Shark. From that moment on, our editors have been adding high-quality content fuel to our system. They added speed and multi-language to our portal.

Also, we recruited many wonderful people who work every day to ensure that the shark conquers the crypto space as professionally as possible. We are not just floating, but gaining momentum, giving a screw to our spacecraft and setting new goals.

Our team improves the content and focuses on reliable sources from different parts of the world to be the first to tell the most recent and interesting information, wrapping it in a mixture of unique space characters and comics.

We celebrate our new victories: our publications are gaining their own views records, we are invited to top world conferences dedicated to cryptocurrency and ICOs, John McAfee and Forbes CryptoMarkets read our news, we more and more  are distinguished among thousands of other media outlets about cryptocurrency.

Thank you for sharing our journey in the crypto space. In the end, but for you, dear readers, The Coin Shark simply would not exist.

Since the launch, The Coin Shark has been maneuvering every single day up to this day. And most importantly – we still have a full tank 🙂

Welcome to our cryptospace!
