Nakamoto Telegram Channel: Where the Controversy All Started

There are more things crypto fans noticed from Nakamoto apart from their list of contributors, which somewhat go against the values of the news platform. In case you didn’t know yet, their official Telegram account was made ideally for the cryptocurrency community. The objective of the page is to allow the community to share their insights regarding the content of the platform. Surprisingly, their page underwent “read-only mode.”

For those who weren’t able to see it, the pinned message said that it was caused by the “trolls and spambots.” If you were one of us, would you believe that a platform managed by the community manager of Ethereum and has approximately 2,240 members infiltrated by trolls and spambots? This situation triggered a suspicion that they will utilize the forum as a channel for those non-BTC coins.

How true that it was caused by spambots and trolls?

Michael Arrington, the contributor of the Nakamoto website, took his response on Twitter that the read-only made was because of the quick and increasing development of the group. Later on, he replied to his own tweet that he could not actually talk about the REAL reason behind the said problem.
