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.

We remind you that Elon Musk had to deal with Twitter fraudsters not once and not twice. Bots with offers to receive different cryptocurrencies for free were attacking Musk so much that he even started writing brilliant responses to them. Later, the social network management even began to block accounts containing the name of Elon Musk.

McAfee Birthday Collection: Top-5 Eccentric Statements, Promises, Innovations and Scandals

john mcafee birthday compilation

The editorial board of The Coin Shark wishes happy birthday to the most unconventional crypto personality John McAfee and hopes he will thrive and please the crypto community for many more years.

For this occasion we decided to compile the loudest things that McAfee has said or done this year.

1. There is no doubt that the wildest promise of John McAfee remains his infamous claim about the price of Bitcoin in 2020. The interesting part is, of course, related to the physical tortures that McAfee is ready to face if his predictions turn out to be wrong.

2. Another loud claim of McAfee was his firm intention to run for presidency during the next election. Given the low levels of popularity that the current US President is coping with, we believe that anything might happen at this point. Politics aside, no doubt that the crypto world will be thrilled to have such a president.  

3. We could not leave out the epic with McAfee’s crypto wallet Bitfi. Was it really hacked? Was McAfee planning to give such a pricy award? We don’t know. However, what we do know is that the story brought a whole lot of attention to the wallet, so maybe it was an ultimate goal in the first place.

4. The CoinMarketCap should beware, because John McAfee is on its toes. His own site with market capitalization and cryptocurrency exchange rates is already functioning.

5. Last, but certainly not least comes the McAfee crypto challenge. Brilliant minds with innovative crypto solutions can join his team to improve and develop the crypto world together.

Anyway, even if John McAfee does not eat any parts of his body or loses the run for presidency, he will always remain one of the brightest stars of the crypto universe. Happy birthday, John!

A Bitcoin Challenge Started Out in China: 21 Days With 0.21 BTC. Why Was It Stopped After Just 3 Days?

bitcoin challenge in china

We all have seen these shows where a person needs to survive a certain period of time with a limited amount of money in different locations. The Chinese TV decided to take it even further and add a new twist to the story.

A girl named He You Bing took up a challenge, during which she had to survive 3 weeks only having 0.21 BTC (approximately 1300 USD). That was all the money she had for food, dwelling and satisfying basic needs.

Considering the prices in China and also the fact that He You Bing carried out the challenge in megalopolises like Shanghai and Shenzhen (which are even pricier), it would seem quite an impossible task to complete.

However, if we think of the situation with cryptocurrency in China, here came another trouble for the girl, which was way more serious than the little amount of money.

He You Bing simply couldn’t find establishments that accepted BTC as a means of payment. She went from place to place, but most of the times very few people even knew about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general, let alone accepted it. As a result, she had to eat wild fruits from the trees, free samples from shops and sleep in 24/7 cafes.

By the end of the 3rd day the challenge had to be stopped, and He You Bing had to be taken to the hospital due to starvation symptoms – the girl was on the verge of losing consciousness.

However, she reached ones of her goal – the challenge attracted attention of the public, thus, raising cryptocurrency awareness in China. Hopefully, next time the girl will choose less radical methods to do so.

John McAfee Is Not Having It With Online Trolls

mcafee is fighting the trolls

Scammers, fraudsters, trolls – whatever you want to call them – have been pushing their luck with a lot of major crypto personalities and famous people.

We all remember how a fake account of Vitalik Buterin tried to cheat the poor followers out of their money and when Elon Musk could not get rid of annoying trolls asking him whether he wanted to purchase Ethereum or not.

This time the crypto enthusiast John McAfee decided to oppose the Internet “pests”. He published an angry message on his Twitter.

So, we genuinely recommend all the trolls to leave McAfee alone for their own sake.

We remind you:

We present a selection of original things and accessories that we found on the web.

1. The Holy Vitalik

Vitalik Buterin, no doubt, has achieved incredible success in the field of cryptocurrency. Therefore, we completely agree with this image of Ethereum’s founder.

2. Almost Nike: JUST HODL IT

The famous slogan of the world-famous sportswear and footwear manufacturer Nike, suits the situation on the crypto market perfectly: just hodl ETH.

3. Do not let ETH go
It is sad to watch those selling cryptocurrency, and then, in the future, not only it restores its positions, but also grows in price. A girl with a balloon symbolizes a lost dream or, in this case, an Ethereum coin.

4. Time to buy Ethereum

These watches always show the right time. It’s time to buy cryptocurrency.

5. Keep calm and hodl ETH

As you know, hodler is the slang name of an investor who buys cryptocurrencies and does not sell them, regardless of the situation on the market. This is what the well-known print reminds us of.

Besides the images of Ethereum, various accessories, clothing and decorative objects are also produced in support of both Bitcoin and other digital coins.

Kanye West Collaborates With Pornhub: Is the Rapper Interested in Cryptocurrencies?

kanye wesr might become a crypto investor

An American rapper Kanye West became the art director of the Pornhub Awards, which awarded representatives of the porn resource for the first time on September 7. Kanye was responsible for the appearance of the ceremony hosts.

It’s no secret that the rapper has experience with Pornhub. At the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Kanye admitted that the administration of Pornhub awarded him a lifetime subscription.

Furthermore, we remind you that the resource has been actively supporting cryptocurrency. Firstly, it added support for paying for adult videos in Tron and ZenCash, and later announced a partnership with a cryptocurrency payment startup PumaPay.

Kanye West also became interested in the topic of investment. He has recently discovered a fake account of American investor Warren Buffett, which he reported about on his Twitter.

Kanye West Discovered a Fake Account of Warren Buffett

In the distant 2014, when the crypto market was just born, Kanye already had a negative experience with all kinds of coins. After all, it was then that a group of developers announced the launch of a virtual currency under the parody name Coiney West. They used the name, as well as the image of the star to promote their cryptocurrency, which was created as a hyped up coin for the hip-hop community. But the rapper did not appreciate this joke. The lawyers of West sued the Coiney team, citing the violation of trademark rights.

Now, it seems that the rapper is not so critical to the crypto world. We might soon hear about his first investment, because his wife Kim Kardashian already has her own Bitcoin.
