Bitcoin development site Bitcoin News
  • Crypto scammers attack BTC education resource site — Bitcoin.org.
  • The website’s first message on entering is ‘double your bitcoin’.
  • At the time of writing, the impostors have raised over $17,700.

The oldest Bitcoin education site — Bitcoin.org, seems to be hacked.  In detail, a pop-up message on the website now says ‘The Bitcoin Foundation is giving back to the community’.

The site which has up to 1.7 million users as recorded last month was reportedly asking BTC holders to send BTC. In return, they promised to double the BTC amount paid.

Above all, hours after posting the giveaway message, the hackers have received over $17,700 in small transactions. This is according to Bitcoin explorer blockchain.com.

Furthermore, users raised the alarm on Twitter after they noticed changes in the bitcoin.org site early this Thursday morning.

To highlight, similar crypto scams have occurred in the past. Thus, they have become so common that many crypto investors have fallen victim to them.

Adding on, Bitcoin.org is handled by Cobra — an unknown Bitcoin hodler. He is infamous for his legal battle with Craig Wright. So far, Cobra has not made any official statement.
