Crypto Gouv: The influencer pockets 4 million euros and disappears!

The YouTubeur Crypto Gouv would have made the trunk with 4 million euros in his pocket. Roughly 300 crypto investors were fooled by this celebrity influencer who sat on tutorials around crypto assets and blockchain.

He encouraged them to form pools

Maybe this is the first time you hear about this kind of scam. Maybe you are unfamiliar with the concept of a crypto influencer. With the case of Crypto Gouv, you will learn much more about this fraudulent and punishable practice.

So, on YouTube, an individual known as “Crypto Gouv” had built up a community of 4,000 people with whom he shared advice on investing in the cryptosphere. Day after day, he baited his pack via Telegram and Discord, with tutorials to better conquer this universe.

This continued until he convinced them to pour money into crypto trading by the hundreds, if not tens of thousands. They were so seduced by the upcoming gains that they no longer cared about the integrity of Crypto Gov.

However, on July 9, Crypto Gouv posted a video, the last of these opuses. Its content contains explanations of crypto scams and the penalty for this type of scam: 5 years in prison. And that’s what he did.

Result: between 3 and 4 million euros stolen and 300 victims.

Crypto Gouv, in the crosshairs of French Justice

Upon discovering the deception, the victims seized the Paris prosecutor’s office to open an investigation into Crypto Gouv. They chose as their lawyer Me Jérémy Asta-Vola, an expert in cyber-scams.

There is a mass audience that is interested in these practices. Inevitably, some malicious people see it as an opportunity. This type of scam is on the increase “comments Asta-Vola.

Would he have made an analogy with the war waged by rapper Booba against influencers?

To say that crypto influencers like Crypto Gov earn a lot in their craft. Last April, we issued a ticket on their fees which can reach 25,000 dollars for a simple advertising tweet.

But as Master Jérémy Asta-Vola said above, this kind of practice is starting to gain ground. The case of Crypto Gouv is therefore not isolated. You might as well be extra vigilant, on YouTube or on other Discord or Telegram type channels.
