It was Revolut’s turn. Another day, another data breach in the crypto world. About a week ago, someone inside the company’s headquarters fell for a scam. According to Revolut, the social hackers only had access to the data “for a short period of time.” And the breach only affected 0,16% of their clients. Not too bad, right? Well, apparently the attackers got 50K people’s data and are already trying to scam them. Plus, they might’ve gotten control of Revolut’s website.

Money is one of the most important but least understood manmade tools in existence. For more than 5,000 years humans have used a tool of exchange called money to facilitate trade. During this timespan, the evolution of money has evolved into a system of information, a social contract, and a ranking system.

Over the last few years, infighting and different visions has led to significant divides within the Bitcoin community, weakening the network effects no matter which chain you support. With all the arguments about scaling, privacy, consensus changes and the various forks, it is amazing that these public networks are still thriving. Nevertheless, the people who maintain the various software protocols that communicate with Bitcoin and the network’s many participants have lives that are finite — which means we don’t know if future generations will change the social contract Satoshi Nakamoto created years ago.

One particular social media scam that can be found on prominent websites like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram is the impersonation of well-known crypto industry executives and blockchain luminaries. Unfortunately even a verified account means nothing these days and these giant corporations have allowed fraudulent acts to flourish giving criminals the opportunity to rake in millions.
Last year the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community welcomed a BCH-based social media network called Memo.cash. Since then Memo has gathered a lot of traction with hundreds of profiles and thousands of onchain updates and conversations posted to the BCH chain.
