    The CEO of IOHK, Charles Hoskinson, has taken it upon himself to warn the Cardano community and the members of the crypto community of the ongoing perpetration of scammers that are taking advantage of the popular video-sharing platform, YouTube.

    Perpetration of scammers using fake giveaways of various digital currencies, especially XRP and Bitcoin (BTC), has become a norm in the crypto ecosystem.

    Charles Hoskinson shared this, “It has come to my attention that a scam has been floating around using my conference keynote to promote a giveaway, youtu.be this is a scam. Please report it to YouTube. We will take legal action if we can against those responsible.”

    However, at press time, the fake giveaway promotion has been taken down by YouTube, but it’s obvious that the perpetrators might still come up with other means.
