WSJCoin however, the launch never took place, faced with the failure of the “controller” the news media, the Nile Lipschitz responsible for compliance with ethical standards:
“We are not participants of the stock market, we are here to report the news and explain them, as we share the news of the banking industry, but we don’t open Bank…”
According to Lipschitz, if the publication has launched a cryptocurrency, the audience might begin to doubt the objectivity of the publication and therefore he clearly outlined his position in the following words:
“We’re not going to run the cryptocurrency”
Recall that in late September, activists of Crypto maniacs aka Team 1234 filmed a documentary showing whether today people live in China, using only bitcoin, despite the government ban.
In late August, the Studio “show and tell” also completed work on the film “State vs bitcoin. Admit me if you can”, which in Hollywood is still filming is based on real events film about the cryptocurrency in Russia.
