When fame comes to you, you must be ready for imitators. When your popularity is connected with crypto-currencies, imitators go further and become swindlers, who hide behind a famous name. Such a fate befell Vitalik Buterin, who complained on Facebook and Instagram on Twitter. In his words , the administration of social networks does not respond to fakie.
For example, on March 24, he asked his subscribers to complain massively about the explicitly fake Facebook account that stole his name. However, by March 30, the swindler could still trade, hiding behind Vitalik Buterin: Facebook did not react to user complaints. The founder of Ethereum advised not to use any social platforms, except for Twitter and Reddit.
Over 5 days and that https://t.co/fjn73K0tQc account has still not been removed. Shame on you, @facebook. BTW, can someone who has not yet deleted their instagram account please report https://t.co/CgxMmjAsLU ? I HAVE NO SOCIAL MEDIA EXCEPT REDDIT AND TWITTER. https://t.co/SRIE6S8kkx
