There a currently ~~11~~ 12 news posts in r/cc stating Bitcoin got accepted as legal tender in the Central African Republic.
5 news post that got it right and write about a legal framework.
and 3 topics saying the BTC adoption news are fake.
Is this a good ratio? I don’t know, but I feel this is just the tip of the iceberg and you usually don’t get the 5 +3 threads until a week later.
It also seem to be a Bitcoin specific problem. Probably because it is the best know coin. But I don’t know. I read way way way less news like this about ETH for example.
Some of these news post are blatant copies and some evidently just changed some words to make it look like they are different.
This shit is influencing the market and I wonder how much influence a few people have to spread news like this.
