BTC hasn’t had 5% daily move for 24 straight days

BTC scammers were on a rampage on Twitter late Wednesday, as many top personalities, had their accounts tweeting about a BTC giveaway. Later, it became obvious that the breach was much more serious when leading brands and famous people including, Barack Obama, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Kanye West, and Uber, tweeted that they would double your bitcoin.

However, Cameron Winklevoss, co-founder of the world’s leading crypto exchange Gemini, disclosed that the scammers were only able to make away with “a paltry sum,” though he wondered if there were underlying reasons for the attack.
