Firstly, let us give you a little background. PewDiePie is, undoubtedly, the most famous Youtube video game player and social media influencer. His YouTube channel has almost 75 million followers. However, recently another channel (T-series) tried to outrun him, which started an online campaign “Save PewDiePie”, according to CCN.
As a part of this campaign, a hacker under the pseudonym TheHackerGiraffe managed to “break into” almost 50 thousand printers around the world to print messages supporting PewDiePie.

And what does it have to do with crypto, you might ask. The answer is simple: the fact that printers can be hacked so easily imposes a great threat on crypto wallet addresses that may remain in the memory of a printer. Moreover, a bit more efforts, and a hacker will get access to a computer that this printer is connected to and get hold of even more personal information. Thus, this campaign is a major wake-up call for the crypto community.
