Duncan Garner, A New Zealand Radio Host, Shys Away From Marketing Bitcoin On Facebook
Duncan Garner, a radio personality in New Zealand hosting The AM Show on Magic Talk Radio has come out to strongly defend himself from claims that he was promoting the use of BTC on his morning show.
I Do Not Use Bitcoin
NewsHub, a local daily news network recently shared a video of Mr. Garner vehemently denying the claims that he encourages the use of BTC. The video was in response to Facebook promotions that were posted on August 26th. He also held an interview where he responded to claims that the New Zealand Government had recently experienced a data breach.
In the interview, he categorically states that the claims posted on Facebook were not his, and goes on to add that he personally does not use Bitcoin. He went on to add to that he has never used the crypto coin, and that he has not been active on the social media network for a while. His response came in the heels of people always asking him why he was pushing the crypto, as well as how it was doing in the overcrowded and ever-competitive crypto market.
Imposters In The Crypto Verse
It is not uncommon to come across stories of people who have been impersonated in the crypto-verse. Earlier this month, Bitmain, a crypto mining hardware manufacturer went head to head with another firm by the name of Bitmain Cloud Miner due to corporate infringement. The former stated that the latter had used its name in promoting its products, thereby, infringing, on the rights of Bitmain Corporation.
Bitmain Corporation stated that the management behind Bitmain Cloud Miner was pretending to work for them. In the process, the latter ended up using the former’s name to continue promoting its products and services to the general populace. Some of the products advertised by Bitmain Cloud Miner included a token referred to as Mangocoin as well as the official miner in use by Bitcoin.
Bitmain had no alternative but to issue a press statement where it asked its clients to take their time to correctly identify the products they were purchasing before completing the transaction.
