Bitcoin has been closing in on the magical $10,000 dollar mark all day and it is pushing otherwise reliable sources to publish fake news. Because no matter what you read online, Bitcoin still hasn’t passed the $10,000 mark yet.
At the time of writing Bitcoin has reached a record price of $9,969 but it has not yet broken $10,000. However, in a rush to be the first to write about the breaking news, reliable sources are putting out articles claiming that it already happened, essentially writing fake news about Bitcoin.
The issue is that publishers are relying on Bitcoin services that are known to offer flawed information and price updates instead of double checking the facts. It is upsetting and wrong since it might still take hours, or even days before Bitcoin breaks that magical mark. It is also problematic because it could lead to hundreds of thousands of readers basing their investments on incomplete data.
Rest assured that we will keep you updated on the latest news about Bitcoin’s last surge towards the new record price, and as soon as the cryptocurrency pushes past $10,000 we will be the first to let you know.
