Bill Gates, during the AMA session ("Ask me about anything") on Reddit accused digital assets in real deaths.

The rationale for this very bold statement is quite trivial. According to Gates, currently using crypto currency, they buy fentanyl and other drugs, so this is one of the few technologies that directly caused deaths.

The reaction did not keep itself waiting. Venture capitalist Anthony Pompliano noted that crypto-currencies are not entirely anonymous, while Gates's words can be applied to any existing currency. Pompliano aptly added that "the main criterion of old age and wealth is hatred for the crypto currency." The famous crypto-enthusiast WhalePanda picked up the joke and introduced Gates to his personal list of "elders screaming at the bitcoin." It is worth remembering that, no later than in 2015, Gates's rhetoric regarding crypto-currencies was much more positive. For example, he surprised listeners in his interview with Jimmy Fellon, saying that bitcoin could significantly simplify the transnational movement of money and significantly reduce the commission, and "bitcoin revolution must be brought closer

Meanwhile, the bitcoin revolution is on the planet. Striptease club Legends Room, opened in Las Vegas in May last year began to take bitcoins from its customers. The payment system is organized very simply: a bitcoin-terminal is installed in the club, allowing you to buy crypto currency on the spot. For payment, you need to scan the tattoo with QR code, which are applied to the bodies of dancers and contain encrypted purse addresses. The organizers explain the innovation with exceptionally good intentions. In their opinion, this practice allows customers to take advantage of bitcoin, as few of them would like their wives to see a compromising entry in the bank statement, and also help attract crypto-currency investors to the institution. One of the dancers, Brenna Sparks, expertly described the club's visitors as people immersed in crypto currencies, adding thoughtfully that she considered crypto-currencies the future of the entertainment industry for adults.

In Iceland, criminals decided that "trifle by pockets", i.e. bitcoins on purses, steal is not solid and switched to farms for mining. Police of Iceland reported a series of the largest in this country robberies, which stole about 600 farms for mining bitcoin and other crypto-currencies. The cost of damage is estimated at almost $ 2 million. Iceland's press has already called the incident "Big robbery of bitcoin" by analogy with "The Great Train Robbery".
"This is an unprecedented in its scale robbery. Everything indicates that the crime was well planned, "said a police representative of the Reykjanes peninsula, where two such robberies occurred. Despite all the efforts of the police, stolen iron has not yet been found. The areas with high energy consumption are under increased surveillance.
