No, Chinese farmers are not behind Cardano’s price rally

Hoskinson claims that the event is just a scam meant to suck money out of rich Chinese farmers.

Its organizers are not related to the IOHK, and they didn’t get permission to use Cardano’s pictures and logos.  

Moreover, he criticized Li for implying that this MLM scheme was somehow related to Cardano’s recent price rally.

The ADA cryptocurrency is currently up a whopping 460 percent from its 2020 low of $0.01768 that was logged on March 13. 

In his initial tweet, Li alleged that Cardano was able to climb to sixth place on CoinGecko due to the ‘shilling’ campaign in China.

There is no shortage of pyramid schemes  

Ponzi schemes remain rampant in the cryptocurrency space, with down-the-line participants hunting for easy money.

This week, a Singaporean businessman who was running an MLM campaign to promote the $4 bln OneCoin scam got slapped with a $72,000 fine.
