People still fall for the "Send us 0.1 btc and we will send 0.2 back"

Yesterday in my youtube feed i saw a "live" video on the Gemini youtube channel.. a channel with some 150k subscribers which incidentally i'm not subscribed to. The channel is now terminated. Not sure if it was the real gemini exchange youtube channel or if they even have on in the first place, but a superficial look gave the impression of it being legit.
Clicked on it and it was the winklevoss twins being interviewed on stage by some woman where half of the screen was covered with the "Give us x and we will double it". The Bitcoin adress even started with 1Gemini. Clearly they had put thought into it and executed it well.
Checked the bitcoin adress today and it seems like they got just under 4 btc from the whole ordeal.

IsitBullshit: those youtube live streams where you can send them Bitcoin and they send you back double whatever they sent

There's currently (as of 4pm Pacific time us July 12) a live stream of the winklevoss twins pushing a new cryptocurrency trading platform and when you click on it to watch and in the video it shows a Bitcoin wallet address and says that if you send Bitcoin they'll send back double whatever you send to your wall.
.1 Bitcoin and you receive .2 Bitcoin .5 Bitcoin and you receive 1 Bitcoin 10 Bitcoin and you receive 20
Is this legit? I saw one a month or two ago with Elon musk where it was the same thing. I don't think it would be worth a billionaire's time to scam people out of a couple thousand dollars worth of Bitcoin but that it the same time it seems too good to be true. Like free money.
What's the deal?

Twitter Hackers Seek Bitcoin Donations By Hacking Accounts of Famous Personalities, Businesses and Politicians

In one of the biggest hacks in the history of Twitter, hackers on Wednesday managed to get access to some high-profile Twitter accounts which include some of the famous business personalities, corporate accounts, and accounts of other politicians.
Official accounts of Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Warren Buffett were completely compromised. The hackers asked millions of followers to send Bitcoins to a specific Bitcoin wallet address. It was the good old Ponzi scheme of sending back double the amount as part of a community giveaway and contribution.
Not only individual accounts, but corporate accounts of companies like Apple, Uber, Coinbase and other crypto exchanges were also at the receiving end.
Twitter quickly took cognizance of this matter and initiated an investigation. The company said that hackers targeted twitter employees in order to get complete access to the company’s tools and systems.
This turns out to be one of the biggest data breaches and data compromise in the history of tech industry. The official support handle of Twitter reported: “We detected what we believe to be a coordinated social engineering attack by people who successfully targeted some of our employees with access to internal systems and tools. We know they used this access to take control of many highly-visible (including verified) accounts and Tweet on their behalf.”
Speaking about this unfortunate incident, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said: “Tough day for us at Twitter. We all feel terrible this happened. We’re diagnosing and will share everything we can when we have a more complete understanding of exactly what happened”.
Theresa Payton, a former White House chief information officer said that she expects Twitter to provide complete details of the event about why and how these accounts were compromised. She also warned that direct messages from all these accounts would have been stolen and released in the future for malicious use.
Speaking to CNBC, Payton said: “They’re going to need to apologize to the VIPs and to the individuals who were defrauded and fell for the scam. The next thing they’re going to need to do is to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation, and they’re going to need to share what they can about who the attackers were and how they pulled this off.”
Gemini's CEO, Tyler Winklevoss, said that the accounts have also tweeted about a scam partnership with a group dubbed CryptoForHealth. The hacked tweets also encourage other crypto groups that celebrities are donating Bitcoin to the community healthcare partners.
Winklevoss told his followers: "DO NOT CLICK THE LINK! These tweets are SCAMS.”
Most of the social media platforms including Twitter has long-back banned any cryptocurrency promotions from their platforms. Incidents like these continue to bring a bad image to the entire crypto industry.

Twitter hack: FBI investigates major attack

Twitter hack: FBI investigates major attack

The FBI has launched an investigation after hackers hijacked Twitter accounts of a number of high-profile US figures in an apparent Bitcoin scam.
"The accounts appear to have been compromised in order to perpetuate cryptocurrency fraud," said the bureau, urging the public to be vigilant.
Elon Musk, Bill Gates and Joe Biden were among those hit in what Twitter said was a "co-ordinated" attack.
Their official accounts requested donations in the cryptocurrency.
"Everyone is asking me to give back," said a tweet from the account of Mr Gates, the Microsoft founder. "You send $1,000, I send you back $2,000."
The US Senate Commerce committee has demanded Twitter brief it about Wednesday's incident by 23 July.
Twitter said the hackers had targeted its employees "with access to internal systems and tools".
"We know they [the hackers] used this access to take control of many highly-visible (including verified) accounts and Tweet on their behalf," the company said in a series of tweets.
It added that "significant steps" had been taken to limit access to such internal systems and tools while the company's investigation continues.
The tech firm has also blocked users from being able to tweet Bitcoin wallet addresses for the time being.

The UK's National Cyber Security Centre said its officers had "reached out" to the tech firm. "We would urge people to treat requests for money or sensitive information on social media with extreme caution," it said in a statement.
US politicians also have questions. Republican Senator Josh Hawley has written to the company asking if President Trump's account had been vulnerable.
President Trump's account was not compromised, the White House said.
The chair of the Senate Commerce committee has also been in contact with Twitter.
"It cannot be overstated how troubling this incident is, both in its effects and in the apparent failure of Twitter's internal controls to prevent it," Senator Roger Wicker wrote to the firm.
One cyber-security expert said that the breach could have been a lot worse in other circumstances.
"If you were to have this kind of incident take place in the middle of a crisis, where Twitter was being used to either communicate de-escalatory language or critical information to the public, and suddenly it's putting out the wrong messages from several verified status accounts - that could be seriously destabilising," Dr Alexi Drew from King's College London told the BBC.

Emergency response

Twitter earlier had to take the extraordinary step of stopping many verified accounts marked with blue ticks from tweeting altogether.
Password reset requests were also being denied and some other "account functions" disabled.
By 20:30 EDT (00:30 GMT Thursday) users with verified account started to be able to send tweets again, but Twitter said it was still working on a fix.

Dmitri Alperovitch, who co-founded cyber-security company CrowdStrike, told Reuters news agency: "This appears to be the worst hack of a major social media platform yet."
On the official account of Mr Musk, the Tesla and SpaceX chief appeared to offer to double any Bitcoin payment sent to the address of his digital wallet "for the next 30 minutes".
"I'm feeling generous because of Covid-19," the tweet added, along with a Bitcoin link address.
The tweets were deleted just minutes after they were first posted.
But as the first such tweet from Mr Musk's account was removed, another one appeared, then a third.
Others targeted included:
  • reality TV star Kim Kardashian West
  • former US President Obama
  • media billionaire Mike Bloomberg
  • the ride-sharing app Uber
  • the iPhone-maker Apple
The campaign of Joe Biden, who is the current Democratic presidential candidate, said Twitter had "locked down the account within a few minutes of the breach and removed the related tweet".

Instagram message

The BBC can report from a security source that a web address - - to which some hacked tweets directed users was registered by a cyber-attacker using the email address [email protected].
The name "Anthony Elias" was used to register the website, but may be a pseudonym - it appears to be a play on "an alias".
Cryptoforhealth is also a registered user name on Instagram, apparently set up contemporaneously to the hack.
The description of the profile read "It was us", alongside a slightly smiling face emoticon.
The Instagram profile also posted a message that said: "It was a charity attack. Your money will find its way to the right place."
In any case, the real identities of the perpetrators are as yet unknown.

Cameron Winklevoss, who was declared the world's first Bitcoin billionaire in 2017 along with his twin brother Tyler, tweeted a message on Wednesday warning people not to participate in the "scam".

In the short time it was online, the link displayed in the tweets of targeted accounts received hundreds of contributions totalling more than $100,000 (£80,000), according to publicly available blockchain records.
The Twitter accounts targeted have millions of followers.

Last year, Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey's account was hacked, but the company said it had fixed the flaw that left his account vulnerable.
Dr Drew recently co-authored a paper warning about the potential of Twitter being used to sow disinformation.
She said the latest incident highlighted the need for all major social media platforms to check their security measures, particularly in the run up to the US presidential vote in November.
"Social media companies such as Twitter and, Facebook all have a duty to consider the damage and influence their platforms can have on the 2020 election, and I think some companies are taking that more seriously than others," she told the BBC.
"Twitter actually has a good history of being forward-thinking and proactive in this space. But whatever the source of this attack [it seems they have] still not done enough."

Weekly news review (July 6-12)

Weekly news review (July 6-12)
Hello, dear Community!
Are you ready for last week's news review? Say no more!
The European Central Bank (ECB) doubled down on its dismissive stance on bitcoin (BTC) July 9, refusing to recognize it as currency in a Q&A session.
“Bitcoin is not a currency, it rather is an asset and it is very volatile,” officials wrote quoting chief economist, Philip Lane.
In May this year, a report dubbed “Crypto-Assets: Implications for financial stability, monetary policy, and payments and market infrastructures” concluded the entire phenomenon had little impact on the traditional economy.
Previously, the European Union’s reserve bank had also come out bearish on the idea of issuing a digital currency of its own, in contrast to noises now coming from China and several other states.

Cybersecurity researchers have revealed eye-opening details about a widespread Android malware campaign wherein attackers silently replaced installed legitimate apps with their malicious versions on nearly 25 million mobile phones.
According to researchers at Check Point, attackers are distributing a new kind of Android malware that disguises itself as innocent-looking photo editing, adult entertainment, or gaming apps and available through widely used third-party app stores.
Dubbed Agent Smith, the malware takes advantage of multiple Android vulnerabilities, such as the Janus flaw and the Man-in-the-Disk flaw, and injects malicious code into the APK files of targeted apps installed on a compromised device and then automatically re-install/updates them without the victims' knowledge or interaction.
Researchers initially encountered the Agent Smith malware in early 2019, which was primarily being found targeting Android devices in India (with 15 million infected devices) and other nearby Asian countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Nepal.

Donald J. Trump tweeted Thursday that he is “not a fan” of cryptocurrencies, saying they were “not money” and referencing their price volatility relative to the dollar in his first public comments on crypto since becoming president of the United States.
In his tweets Thursday, Trump took aim at the potential for using cryptocurrencies in illegal activities, citing drug trafficking in particular.
“Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity,” he said.

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, co-founders of the New York-based crypto exchange Gemini, may soon join the Libra Association, the consortium governing Facebook’s proposed cryptocurrency.
Joining Libra might be a surprise move to some, considering the Winklevoss brothers’ legendary fight over control of Facebook with its CEO Mark Zuckerberg, their former Harvard classmate. But they now want to be “frenemies” with a mutual goal of promoting mainstream crypto adoption.
Plus, the twins are aiming to diversify Gemini’s token offerings by 2020. They recently applied for a broker-dealer license through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, which would allow Gemini to list digital securities.
So far, only one crypto exchange, Coinbase, has joined the Libra Association, whose ranks also include traditional financial players such as PayPal, Visa and Mastercard and VC firms such as Union Square Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz. (Crypto custodian Xapo is also a member.)

Bitcoin (BTC) bolstered its already bullish technical setup with a move above $13,000 on Wednesday.
The top cryptocurrency by market capitalization rose to $13,154 in the Asian trading hours, the highest level since June 27, according to Bitstamp data.
With the move to two-week highs, BTC has recovered 85 percent of the sell-off from $13,880 to $9,614 seen in seven days to July 2.

Can we put an end to price predictions?

Tom Lee announces that... Winklevoss twins confidently affirm that... John McAffee doubles down on initial prediction of...
Still? We're giving clicks to this bullshit? The worst is that in the comments of each and every thread like this, people are pointing out how foolish making these predictions is.
Mods, can we finally outright ban 'articles' that do nothing but inject bullish sentiment? It blurs the waters and does nothing but hype up Bitcoin (and in rare cases - ETH). "Celebrity" investors and analysts never talk about other projects either, despite the massive industry support some of these projects are gathering (VeChain, Hyperledger, IOTA, XRP, etc.). Why? Just like the rest of us, they have zero idea what the future really holds. All they can do is use the resources they have to manipulate public sentiment, which we happily help them do.
Furthermore, if you think injecting artificial bullish sentiment makes a market stronger (and therefore, more likely to go up), think again. All it does is attract uneducated speculators and sharks who always need fresh blood to feed on.
It's a plague that likely won't go away, but at least we can do our part in lowering its impact.

So What Exactly Is a Bitcoin Anyhow? Total Breakdown of Bitcoin

There's digital money, and after that there's Bitcoin. The extremely geeky Bitcoin is a mathematically-derived currency that promises to change the method people utilize money. Bitcoins are not real coins-they're strings of code secured with military-grade encryption-and people that use them to deal items as well as solutions are tough to trace. In addition to confidential drug dealers, Ashton Kutcher as well as the Winklevoss doubles have actually reportedly jumped on the bandwagon. There's something to be said regarding utilizing currency that isn't regulated by the government or financial institutions, doesn't come with the normal deal costs and is impossible to imitation. Bitcoin likewise promises to be disaster-proof, since you can not damage numbers similarly that you can damage gold books or fiat money.

In a typical purchase, purchaser A from area X pays seller B some Bitcoins online. Miners after that race to validate and encrypt the transaction, logging Bitcoin codes in a central server.
