Popular Indian roaster and streamer on YouTube, Ajey Nagar, aka CarryMinati is the latest victim of the ongoing BitCoin hack scandal.

The hack happened on the second channel of CarryMinati, which goes by the name of CarryisLive, where he streams himself playing video games, often with other YouTubers and celebrities.

Just a week ago in a similar incident, Twitter accounts of several renowned celebrities were hacked to promote the Bitcoin scam.

YouTube has been at the receiving end of similar hacks for years now, with several YouTube channels getting hacked regularly to promote similar cryptocurrency scams.

What Happened?

The hackers live-streamed 3 videos, in which they asked for BitCoin & Ethereum donation with a changed description of the streaming videos, different from the usual ones we see on the channel.

The second video was titled “Tesla Cybertruck Earnings Call | $TSLA Q2 Earnings Report News Live”

And the third video was titled “CHARITY STREAM: HELP ASSAM & BIHAR,” which is similar to a real stream done by CarryMinati a few days back, for the benefit of flood-affected people in the eastern states of India.

CarryMinati was quick to take cognizance of the matter and asked YouTube India on Twitter for assistance.

 

Twitter is Exploding
