Fake Announcement on DubaiCoin
On May 25, ArabianChain Technology revealed a scam announcement that Dubai is making its own digital currency. However, circulation of the token will be controlled by both the city as well as authorized brokers, as per the Block report citing an archived version of the press release on the Internet Archive.
Moreover, the announcement explained that the token will turn into Dubai’s ‘De-Facto Digital Currency,’ however, the up-and-coming crypto can be purchased at a starting price of 17 cents per token through dub-pay.com website.
More so, the fake announcement circulated quickly and the crypto is listed only on the HitBTC crypto exchange. Furthermore, DubaiCoin (DBIX)’s value jumped more than 1,000% to almost $1.5 over the timespan of a day. According to TradingView, the DBIX price is $0.27, at the time of writing.
Furthermore, ArabianChain Technology appears to be a legitimate firm, which has a token called DubaiCoin (DBIX). But the entity said on social media that ‘We have not made such an announcement, please be cautious.’
