You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics.

Central Banks have scammed working people out of TRILLIONS of dollars since 1913, but a hacker steals $100k worth of Bitcoin, and it’s immediate headline news, the media calls it a “Bitcoin Scam”, and the FBI launches an investigation?

Interesting how it’s Front Page news when “thousands” are lost in a Bitcoin scam—but nothing when “trillions” is printed by central banks

Twitter hack's attention being redirected towards ₿itcoin via the "Bitcoin Scam" headlines that are dominating media rn should be directed at digital platforms, and them becoming responsible for the scams they allow, and even advertise like Google, FB, and Twitter does

I wonder if companies like this should be responsible for allowing such scams like this to get the credibility of their association, or the association of the accouns they host? Because YT, Google, and FB are taking money to advertise all sorts of scams. Rental scams, gold scams, crypto scams, counterfit merchandise scams, you name it. I've seen them all. So they're obviously not vetting the people they take money from to advertise at all, and so people are seeing it as an ad, and assuming it's vetted. Therefore, giving the scam more credibility in the process to those that are unaware. The only way I see them vetting this stuff efficiently enough to not advertise scammers, and not help scammers make their scams look more legit by giving them the benefit of their advertising association, is if we make them liable for accepting money from scammer's to advertise them to their users.
If a celebrity or large page irresponsibility advertised a scam, wouldn't you hold them accountable? Is Kylie Jenner not accountable for advertising the scam fire festival? Or the other celebrities who advertised that scam? There are literal court cases for that rn.
Just think, if the billboard down the street was advertising the local crackhead buisness, do you think the billboard owner would not be liable for advertising something illegal? I don't get why digital platforms get a pass here

"How can anyone fall for Bitcoin scam giveaways?" says the guy who bought in at $17k and believes it inevitable Bitcoin will hit $250,000/BTC within a few years because his favourite Twitter personalities convinced him trillions of dollars of wealth will pour in. 😂🤦‍♂️"

OK r/conspiracy...who is behind the Twitter hack / bitcoin scam?

If you haven't heard:
A number of high-profile Twitter accounts were simultaneously hacked on Wednesday by attackers who used the accounts — some with millions of followers — to spread a cryptocurrency scam.
Apple, Elon Musk, Joe Biden and Bill Gates were among the accounts compromised in a broadly targeted hack that remained mysterious hours after taking place. Those accounts and many others posted a message promoting the address of a bitcoin wallet with the claim that the amount of any payments made to the address would be doubled and sent back.
In the hours following the initial scam posts, Kim Kardashian West, Barack Obama, Wiz Khalifa, Warren Buffett, YouTuber MrBeast, Wendy’s, CashApp and Mike Bloomberg also posted the cryptocurrency scam. (Techcrunch article)
It's weird because a) you've got to be a cybercriminal mastermind to pull this off, but 2) if you were a criminal genius you'd probably come up with something better than "send BTC here and i'll double it." (For example, a much more profitable hack would just be to short TSLA and have Elon tweet that he resigned.)
So what's going on here?
Seems to me like it is a government cyber-warfare "flex." But by who?
