Answer Beware of scams and fake offers coming from “Bitcoin.org” after it has been hacked
Bitcoin.org is the oldest cryptocurrency website registered by Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous founder of Bitcoin.
This site was hacked earlier today.
The hackers then scammed and made fraudulent offers tempting to give away bitcoins by multiplying the bitcoins sent by users to the said address.
The scammers reportedly managed to collect $17,764 before taking down the site.
The website is still offline and inaccessible for the moment.
The owner of the transferred website, known by the pseudonym “Cobra,” tweeted to reveal the news and told the website might remain offline for a few days.Read:The rise in the price of Bitcoin coincides with the continued exit of Bitcoin from the trading platforms…Details here

Cobra blamed the recent change to Cloudflare and believed there was some kind of outage from the infrastructure provider, and added:
Previously, Bitcoin.org was not hacked at all.
But as soon as we moved to Cloudflare, two months later we were hacked.
Addressing Cloudflare, he said:
Could you explain where you are directing my traffic as well?
Because my actual server didn’t get any traffic during the hack.
Targeted fraud for bitcoin holders continues:
Bitcoin giveaway scams are very popular among hackers as it allows them to make money quickly without having to hack anyone’s wallet.

The scam highlighted how people still fall for these very obvious scams.
Bitcoin price was not affected by the news of the hack of the website “Bitcoin.org” as the largest cryptocurrency is trading in green with a gain of 4% in the past 24 hours.
The top cryptocurrency managed to set daily highs above $44,280.
The crypto market collectively rose yesterday after a bearish weekend as it fell below the key $40,000 support level due to the “Evergrande” market turmoil.
Heading into the end of September, market experts are predicting that the cryptocurrency market will rise to new highs as the last quarter proved to be historically bullish for the most important cryptocurrencies.
