A 16-year-old girl from India developed a Bitcoin app called Crypto Price Tracker, and users on Reddit viciously attacked her with abuse and death threats.
When the internet first arose, it was hailed as a technological marvel that would change the world. People would be able to virtually visit museums from all over the world and have access to knowledge that could only be found in the finest universities. However, the reality is that the internet is often a cesspool where the mob rules. Case in point is what happened to Harshita Arora, a 16-year-old girl from India who created a Bitcoin app. It was not long before users on Reddit accused her of plagiarizing the app and heaping a horrid amount of abuse upon her.
