"This is a scam, don't get involved," Bitcoin Gemini co-founder Cameron Winklevoss warned in a tweet from his official account. Comments and posts at Twitter show that thousands of dollars of bitcoin could have been sent to the fraudsters' accounts.
Twitter said it was working to fix a "security problem". "We are investigating and taking steps to fix this problem. We will update the situation to everyone immediately," the social network wrote in a tweet.
Biden's campaign team said that Twitter locked the account for a few minutes and deleted the related scams.
Bezos, Gates and Musk are among the 10 richest people in the world, with tens of millions of followers on Twitter.

Weekly news review (July 6-12)

Weekly news review (July 6-12)
Hello, dear Community!
Are you ready for last week's news review? Say no more!

The European Central Bank (ECB) doubled down on its dismissive stance on bitcoin (BTC) July 9, refusing to recognize it as currency in a Q&A session.
“Bitcoin is not a currency, it rather is an asset and it is very volatile,” officials wrote quoting chief economist, Philip Lane.
In May this year, a report dubbed “Crypto-Assets: Implications for financial stability, monetary policy, and payments and market infrastructures” concluded the entire phenomenon had little impact on the traditional economy.
Previously, the European Union’s reserve bank had also come out bearish on the idea of issuing a digital currency of its own, in contrast to noises now coming from China and several other states.

Cybersecurity researchers have revealed eye-opening details about a widespread Android malware campaign wherein attackers silently replaced installed legitimate apps with their malicious versions on nearly 25 million mobile phones.
According to researchers at Check Point, attackers are distributing a new kind of Android malware that disguises itself as innocent-looking photo editing, adult entertainment, or gaming apps and available through widely used third-party app stores.
Dubbed Agent Smith, the malware takes advantage of multiple Android vulnerabilities, such as the Janus flaw and the Man-in-the-Disk flaw, and injects malicious code into the APK files of targeted apps installed on a compromised device and then automatically re-install/updates them without the victims' knowledge or interaction.
Researchers initially encountered the Agent Smith malware in early 2019, which was primarily being found targeting Android devices in India (with 15 million infected devices) and other nearby Asian countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Nepal.

Donald J. Trump tweeted Thursday that he is “not a fan” of cryptocurrencies, saying they were “not money” and referencing their price volatility relative to the dollar in his first public comments on crypto since becoming president of the United States.
In his tweets Thursday, Trump took aim at the potential for using cryptocurrencies in illegal activities, citing drug trafficking in particular.
“Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity,” he said.

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, co-founders of the New York-based crypto exchange Gemini, may soon join the Libra Association, the consortium governing Facebook’s proposed cryptocurrency.
Joining Libra might be a surprise move to some, considering the Winklevoss brothers’ legendary fight over control of Facebook with its CEO Mark Zuckerberg, their former Harvard classmate. But they now want to be “frenemies” with a mutual goal of promoting mainstream crypto adoption.
Plus, the twins are aiming to diversify Gemini’s token offerings by 2020. They recently applied for a broker-dealer license through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, which would allow Gemini to list digital securities.
So far, only one crypto exchange, Coinbase, has joined the Libra Association, whose ranks also include traditional financial players such as PayPal, Visa and Mastercard and VC firms such as Union Square Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz. (Crypto custodian Xapo is also a member.)

Bitcoin (BTC) bolstered its already bullish technical setup with a move above $13,000 on Wednesday.
The top cryptocurrency by market capitalization rose to $13,154 in the Asian trading hours, the highest level since June 27, according to Bitstamp data.
With the move to two-week highs, BTC has recovered 85 percent of the sell-off from $13,880 to $9,614 seen in seven days to July 2.

We are Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, but you probably know us as the Winklevii. We are here to talk about Gemini (gemini.com), our new bitcoin exchange. AMA, or rather AUA!

We first learned about Bitcoin in 2012. Perhaps where you'd least expect -- on an island off the coast of Spain in the middle of August -- IBIZA. Our first impression was that this was either going to be really big or a complete zero. We were immediately taken in by Bitcoin's elegance and enormous promise, and as we started to learn more, we became convinced that Bitcoin was the future of money. We began buying bitcoin, but quickly realized that there was no safe and easy way to buy and sell bitcoin in the US! So, a year and a half ago, we decided to do something about it. We began assembling a team of top engineers to build Gemini -- a next generation bitcoin exchange. This past Monday, Gemini opened its doors to the world. We are super excited for Gemini's journey ahead and look forward to sharing it with you. Please AMA, or rather AUA!

EDIT: Thank you Reddit for the interest in our story and hearing what we have to say. It's been a lot of fun answering questions. It's certainly and honor and flattered to be here. We appreciate the fact that you're taking time to learn more about us as people and entrepreneurs and about Gemini. We're working hard to build the next thing, which is Gemini, and super passionate about making sure that Bitcoin reaches its full potential.

BlockFi Now Offers a Crypto Deposit Account With Compound Interest

BlockFi Now Offers a Crypto Deposit Account With Compound Interest
https://preview.redd.it/p2ipoquptek21.jpg?width=860&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b6aa6d47db8b33e8887d5e7b07b7900937fbeacf
Cryptocurrency lending startup BlockFi has launched a crypto deposit account that provides compound interest.
Announcing the news on Tuesday, the firm said that the BlockFi Interest Account (BIA) is now live and offers customers an annual interest rate of 6 percent, paid on a monthly basis in cryptocurrency. That monthly interest is then compounded to produce a 6.2 percent annual percentage yield or APY.
“It helps crypto investors grow their wealth with one of the most powerful tools in finance – compound interest,” Brad Michelson, director of marketing at BlockFi told CoinDesk.
Users from across the globe can deposit either bitcoin (BTC) or ether (ETH) to earn interest from the offering and can withdraw their funds at any time, BlockFi said.
Account holdings are custodied at the Gemini Trust Company, co-founded by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, according to the announcement. Gemini Trust is regulated by the New York Department of Financial Services and also offers insurance coverage for the digital assets it holds in custody.
While the BIA looks rather like the crypto version of a traditional savings account, Michelson told CoinDesk that the product “doesn’t come with the backing of the federal government like a savings account at a bank does.”
The executive further said that, as BlockFi’s business also includes providing crypto loans to institutions, it can still afford the interest paid out, even if the prices of bitcoin and ether fall. “We charge more to the institutions borrowing the crypto from BlockFi then we pay to depositors,” Michelson explained.
The BIA was first launched in beta version at the start of this year and already holds over $10 million in assets from retail and institutional investors, according to the firm’s figures.
Back in December, BlockFi raised $4 million in a round that was led by Akuna Capital, with participation from Mike Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital Ventures and Anthony Pompliano’s Morgan Creek Digital, among others.
It also raised $52.5 million last July, in a round led by Galaxy Digital, and further secured $1.55 millionearly in 2018 with backing from ConsenSys Ventures, SoFi, Kenetic Capital and others.

Crypto Exchange Gemini to List Bitcoin Cash With NYDFS Approval

Crypto Exchange Gemini to List Bitcoin Cash With NYDFS Approval

https://preview.redd.it/nzj7cnpyb2321.jpg?width=1500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=fbcbc1539fa6faa89b828a258742f00a68489645
The Winklevoss-owned Gemini crypto exchange is adding support for bitcoin cash (BCH), the firm announced Friday.
Specifically, the New York-based startup is only supporting the fork of bitcoin cash based on the Bitcoin ABC roadmap, and not the alternative version, “Satoshi’s Vision” (SV). The difference arises after a controversial hard fork last month when the bitcoin cash network split into two different and competing blockchains with their own tokens.
The exchange has added replay protection to ensure that transactions are only valid on the one network, wrote engineering VP Eric Winer.
“Any cryptocurrency sent to Gemini over a blockchain that we do not support, such as Bitcoin SV (BSV), will be invalid and irrecoverable,” he said, adding:
“We are continuing to evaluate Bitcoin SV over the coming weeks or months, and we may or may not choose to support withdrawals and/or trading of Bitcoin SV in the future.”
Gemini added that the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) has approved the bitcoin cash listing, allowing the exchange to offer both trading and custody services to its customers in the state. The agency had not yet made an announcement regarding its approval at press time.
Starting Saturday at 14:30 UTC, customers will be able to begin depositing bitcoin cash into their accounts, with trading support starting on Monday at 18:00 UTC. At launch, the exchange is offering BCH trading pairs with U.S. dollars, bitcoin, ether, litecoin and zcash.
It joins a number of other exchanges in listing bitcoin cash ABC as bitcoin cash, including Kraken and Coinbase, while Poloniex still lists ABC and SV as separate coins.
Gemini first announced it was looking into adding bitcoin cash in March, prior to the hard fork. At the time, founders Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss also cited litecoin as a potential addition. The latter coin was officially listed in October.
