Kevin Pham, a crypto content writer (a viral content creator, according to his LinkedIn profile) and crypto investor who now calls himself a Bitcoin SV minimalist, has posted a curious tweet. In the post, he's compared the rejected-by-the-crypto-community Craig Wright (CSW), the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, to Jesus Christ.

Is Craig Wright really similar to Jesus Christ?

CSW’s situation is similar to that of Jesus Christ, he writes. The similarity is in that both were rejected by the community. He believes that in the future, Bitcoin supporters will regret standing up to Craig Wright instead of standing with him.

Wright’s book gets suspended

A big supporter of Bitcoin SV and friend of Craig Wright, Calvin Ayre, has recently posted a tweet, saying that a book on the creation of Bitcoin prepared by CSW was suspended a week before it was due to be published. CSW even ordered a few copies for himself and his family.

“how is it possible that a book about Craig and the creation of Bitcoin, was pulled a week before publishing and Craig was cooperating with the production and had ordered some for him and family and he finds out in an article by a nobody site that is blaming him for pulling it?”

Ayre also says that ‘a nobody site’ has blamed Wright, himself, for pulling this book out of production.

The book called “Behind the Mask: Craig Wright and the Battle for Bitcoin” was published in Australia but it was suddenly suspended at the last moment. It was scheduled to appear in stores on January 28.

Australian news site Micky says that the publisher withdrew the book for fear of getting a lawsuit filed against them. After all, Craig Wright has not yet been acknowledged by the court to be the original Bitcoin creator.

  • Bitcoin (BTC) scammers know no quarantines or self-isolation. Dozens of fraudulent airdrops falsely endorsed by Bill Gates ask YouTubers to send in their Bitcoins.

Typically, fake YouTube airdrops are quite similar to each other. With the current pandemic enraging across the planet, a series of scams that impersonate Bill Gates have some distinct features.

With Bitcoin (BTC) Price Drop, Scammers are Getting Greedy

Just like in several other previous cases, the fraudsters launch fake 'live streams' on YouTube, asking users to send in their Bitcoins (BTC) in order to get redouble the initial amount.  An 'entry ticket' into to this scam starts at 0.1 BTC which is more than $650. With previous scams, it was much cheaper.

The scammers also publish the URLs of this campaign, which are linked to suspicious websites. Unlike previous cases, fraudsters launch multiple live streams simultaneously. At press time of this article, at least two of them were active.

According to statistics, the average popularity of one live stream is about 30,000 viewers.

Very Bad Idea

Alongside that, launching fake airdrops on behalf of Microsoft's Bill Gates isn't a slam dunk for the fraudsters. It may seem ironic, but Mr. Gates is a prominent critic of cryptocurrencies, particularly of Bitcoin (BTC). He is sure that digital assets represent a kind of a ‘greater fool theory’ type of investment.

Cryptocurrencies kill, added Mr. Gates. To him, its only use-case besides short-term speculations is illegal funding for drug trafficking:

Right now cryptocurrencies are used for buying fentanyl and other drugs, so it is a rare technology that has caused deaths in a fairly direct way.

The U.Today team will one more time state that no airdrop will be conducted without the notification from an official website of a product or token. Any YouTube, Medium, and/or Telegram announcements may shill scammers. Never send your money to unknown persons.
