U.K. police warn people to watch out for Bitcoin scammers taking advantage of corona virus outbreak

According to the British Guardian, British police have issued a warning that fraud related to the coronavirus outbreak has increased, victims have lost more than $ 1 million, and scammers have demanded payment in bitcoin. It is reported that the scammers used the name of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to send emails to the victims, promising to provide them with a list of infected people in their area and demanding bitcoin as compensation. In addition, some developers recently launched a dystopian token called "CoronaCoin", which will reduce the supply every 48 hours based on the number of deaths from the virus. Although 20% of CoronaCoin's supply will be donated monthly to the Red Cross, many people still criticize this pathological cryptocurrency as being very unethical.
