Pablo Escobar’s brother launches ‘dietbitcoin’
Roberto Escobar, brother of deceased drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, launched dietbitcoin via an ICO. Escobar believes Bitcoin to be a scam perpetrated by the US government and, as such, is backing a hard fork of Bitcoin. The ICO pre-sale is in progress now.
Escobar’s connection to dietbitcoin was today confirmed by a spokesperson for Escobar Inc. Escobar Inc. is Robert Escobar’s investment company. Escobar served as the chief accountant for his drug dealing brother during a time when he controlled 80% of the global cocaine market. He’s made some pretty wild claims about the nature of Bitcoin. See below…
“Bitcoin was created by the US government”
He said: “I am the first person in the world, Roberto De Jesus Escobar Gaviria, to publicly come out and claim that Bitcoin was created by the American Government, and I am not going to be the last person to say this.
“The world is going to wake up. The world is going to see that this was created by them. And when they see it, it is too late, and when the CIA founds out that the world knows about this, the CIA is going to sell all of their coins, and they will destroy the value of Bitcoin…
“That’s why I am creating my own cryptocurrency called dietbitcoin (DDX).”
