Western media: North Korean hackers hit bitcoin

46
Western media outlets report on "increased activity from North Korean hackers." Sky News publishes material in which it is stated that allegedly hackers from the DPRK carried out a series of attacks on the exchanges that carry out transactions with the cryptocurrency bitcoin.


Western analysts say that "despite the North Korean hacker activity, the exchanges are reliably protected." At the same time, the accusation is being made that "North Korean hackers are working for the regime of Kim Jong-un."

From the statement:
They do this to increase social tension and financial uncertainty in the West in the interests of the North Korean nuclear regime. However, the cryptocurrency exchanges have reliable protection.


Western media: North Korean hackers hit bitcoin


The accusation of all sins against the "North Korean hackers" in the Chinese media has already been called the "wake-up call." On the economic portals of China, it is noted that this way the ground is felt for a sharp drop in the rate of Bitcoin, which will be blamed not on those who manipulate cryptocurrencies, but on the “North Korean hackers”. This is the most convenient option for those who play cryptocurrency at colossal “growth-fall” intervals.

In the DPRK, Western accusations have not commented in any way.

    In my understanding, any currency should be provided with something. What Bitcoins, Ethereum, etc. are provided with, I still do not understand. graphics card performance?
    Most likely this is a means of legalizing income, which is being inflated and will soon collapse.

            After Europa was thrown out in a particularly perverted position, she will not be able to cope with anyone and anything by herself. This is an indisputable fact.

        Nifiga, this pyramid is not provided with anything, like all the other pyramids ... During the “tulip fever” (they say that this is the first pyramid in history), you could buy a house or a brewery for the tulip bulb. Bulbs were given in the dowry. But on one “beautiful” day there were simply no buyers for the bulbs ... And that’s it. Someone certainly raped a lot from this, but most lost the latter. And tulips again became just flowers ...

      The course of bitcoin is raised before the release of this garbage on the exchange (such as IPO)
      That's the day before the release of futures it is worth throwing all the bitcoins - the high rate is artificially inflated.
