Pablo Escobar’s Brother Launches Bitcoin ICO
Escobar Inc. launched Bitcoin fork called “Diet Bitcoin” (DDX), which will deliver a quick and simple payment alternative. Currently it is available at a 96% discount in the company’s ICO, selling at $2 instead of the usual $50. Also there will be further token sales with the second tranche priced at $100, and the third at $1,000.
There is a book titled “Pablo Escobar’s Diet Bitcoin”, though Escobar himself died 16 years before the Bitcoin creation.
The publication makes some startling claims, not least that Bitcoin was created by the U.S. government. And, for Escobar, this will eventually be its undoing. “The world is going to see that this was created by the government”, he says, at which point the “CIA is going to sell all of their coins, and they will destroy the value of Bitcoin.”
Escobar sees such an end for all “your worthless coins,” leaving only one coin standing: “They will all go to zero… But not my coin… This is going to be my new work in life.”
The white paper of Diet Bitcoin focuses on the Pablo Escobar connection as the ICO’s main selling point. It also points Roberto’s previous time served as “accountant of all of Pablo’s businesses and enterprises and his most trusted confidant” and points to other feathers in his bow such as “the creation of offshore entities and the opening of bank accounts”.
