Google’s AI Stated Bitcoin Is “A Collapsed Economic Bubble”

If you still do not understand what is happening with the cryptocurrency market, in particular with the prices of all digital coins, Google’s AI gave a kind of interesting answer. By entering the search request “Bitcoin”, you may see the following card which defined Bitcoin as “a collapsed economic bubble”.


Source: Finance Magnates

In a couple of hours the definition was edited, claiming: “Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency, a form of electronic cash. It is a decentralized digital currency without a central bank or single administrator that can be sent from user-to-user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries.”

The algorithm which aggregates the information displays the useful cards in the sidebar automatically. However, such a sentence clearly shows that the company’s AI system considers the bitcoin market as an economic bubble.

The CEO of Google Sundar Pichai explained that Google’s AI looks at every keyword based on “things like relevance, freshness, popularity and how other people are using it”.

Looking from this point of view, it means that the real reason why such a card displayed is that people downgraded Bitcoin and lost any hope in it.

Bomb Bitcoin: A New Scammers’ Scheme of Getting Cryptocurrency

Scammers are becoming more and more resourceful in making up new ways of obtaining cryptocurrency, in particular Bitcoin. This scheme is quite simple: the criminal sends an email where it is pointed out that if a victim does not send $20,000 in Bitcoin within a specified time period, then the former denotes a bomb inside the building where the victim’s company is. The culprit also sends the Bitcoin addresses, in the following email, such an address does not exist.

It is just impossible not to respond to such threats due to some moments in history, so the whole offices are now being evacuated as this scam spreads.

Here you can see the full text of the email:

“My man carried a bomb (Hexogen) into the building where your company is located. It is constructed under my direction. It can be hidden anywhere because of its small size, it is not able to damage the supporting building structure, but in the case of its detonation you will get many victims.

My mercenary keeps the building under the control. If he notices any unusual behavior or emergency he will blow up the bomb.

I can withdraw my mercenary if you pay. You pay me 20.000 $ in Bitcoin and the bomb will not explode, but don’t try to cheat -I warrant you that I will withdraw my mercenary only after 3 confirmations in blockchain network.

Here is my Bitcoin address : 1GHKDgQX7hqTM7mMmiiUvgihGMHtvNJqTv

You have to solve problems with the transfer by the end of the workday. If you are late with the money explosive will explode.

This is just a business, if you don’t send me the money and the explosive device detonates, other commercial enterprises will transfer me more money, because this isnt a one-time action.

I wont visit this email. I check my Bitcoin wallet every 35 min and after seeing the money I will order my recruited person to get away.

If the explosive device explodes and the authorities notice this letter:

We are not terrorists and dont assume any responsibility for explosions in other buildings.”

The New York Police Department (NYPD) reacted to such emails and made an official statement on Twitter, stating that such threats are considered to be “not credible”:

The FBI has also tweeted calling for public’s vigilance:

Our editorial board strongly urges not to believe such threats in order not to become a victim of the heinous scams. If you are hesitating if this email is real or not, please, call the police. We remind you
