The Central Bank of Poland has admitted to paying for a campaign of social media propaganda. In one case a prominent polish YouTuber was paid $30,000 to make videos claiming to have lost money on crypto. The Central Bank of Poland working with the Polish Financial Supervision Authority has no problem using fraud to dissuade people from looking into it.

This isn’t new by any stretch and it can be quite outlandish. CNBC wants you to believe that 1 or 2 people mining Bitcoin in North Korea means that you could potentially be supporting Kim Jong Un’s regime by trading Bitcoin.

This is how you take a fact and turn it into propaganda. After that shocking intro, we get to one of the only facts of the story. More than one IP address was used to mine Bitcoin in North Korea.

At this point the video delves into pure speculation and boogieman tactics. The final nail is a guilt trip fit for social media manipulation. Thanks for the rubbish CNBC!  

More recently Venezuela has been attacking Bitcoin on state run TV. The standard lot of villains are bandied about, terrorism, money laundering, drugs and tax evasion. Now evading the exchange controls is added to the list demons perpetrated by the Bitcoin.

“It was recently reported that many people have begun using Bitcoin, as an alternative to evade policies on foreign exchange by the Bolivarian Government to ensure proper development of the economy.”

And finally we take a look at some old timey propaganda. Bitcoin is “Anti-Social”, that according to a video from TV New Zealand in 2013.

Well that escalated quickly! It just goes to show you need to mindful about what any media outlet is going to say about crypto.
