Default Pablo Escobar’s Brother Roberto, Responds to BTC Scam with ‘Dietbitcoin’

Roberto Escobar has recently launched a Colombian version of cryptocurrency and alternative to Bitcoin called Dietbitcoin (DDX). This BTC hard fork coin has been initiated as an Escobar Inc. venture as reported by TheNextWeb. Roberto also wrote a book which is available on the website of his cryptocurrency, and is titled, ‘The True Story by Roberto Escobar: Pablo Escobar’s Dietbitcoin’. In its description it mentions,”After making $100 billion dollars, Roberto Escobar launches the dietbitcoin ‘DDX’ cryptocurrency”.

The book includes interesting in depth chapters on “The Other Peruvian Plane,” and “Noriega, The Traitor”, as well as the basis for Robertos proposal to create a new cryptocurrency. He mentions his intentions for DDX saying, “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)”.

Dietbitcoin is currently running an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) that consists of three rounds with 1 million DDX coins as the cap for the crowdsale. The pre-ICO round 1 offers a total of 300,000 coins for $2 a coin, a sale price from the $50 originally listed, pre-ICO round 2 offers 300,000 coins for $100 each, and the ICO will have 400,000 tokens for $1000 each.

Roberto, in his book, makes it known that the elusive Nakamoto himself approached him for the creation of DDX, but it was a ploy by the US government to invade his Escobar Inc. He declares that his DDX will remain out of the reach of ‘Americanos’ who monitor Bitcoin users and track their activity. He also made contact with another crypto leader, John McAfee, founder of McAfee software but Roberto broke off the deal of them making DDX together because he believed that the vision was too small.

Roberto has an interesting opinion on Ethereum (ETH) and doubts its legitimacy as a cryptocurrency due to the young age of the co creator Vitalik Buterin. He states in his book, “Ethereum is a complete scam. This is nice technology, but it was created by a small child. Who cares about this child? I do not care. He can come here and talk to me in my face. I will say ‘Sir, you are a gringo. You think I care about the gringo coin? I don’t care.’ All of these other coins and tokens; do not even get me started on tokens”.
