Spanish Embassy's Crypto Quest: Unusual Twitter Trail Leaves Cryptocurrency Enthusiasts Puzzled
Jan 31, 2024
The official Twitter account of the Spanish Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina, @EmbEspanaByH, has sparked confusion among cryptocurrency enthusiasts with a series of unusual tweets. Over the past two days, the embassy's account has directed tweets at various crypto projects, including meme token WEN, asking about claiming rewards and cryptocurrency airdrop promotions. It also inquired about similar topics with lesser-known crypto startups like Dymension, SatoshiVM, and Star Heroes, and even addressed controversial crypto figure Richard Heart regarding the "Pulse Chain Launchpad." The sudden shift in the embassy's Twitter activity has led to speculation about whether the account may have been compromised by a crypto enthusiast. Without an official statement, the motive behind these tweets remains a mystery, leaving some in the crypto community amused and others concerned about a potential security breach, similar to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's Twitter account hack in January. The Embassy of Spain has chosen not to comment on the matter, adding to the intrigue.
