Cryptocurrency influencers paid thousands of dollars for tweets

By day, Paul Angus is an engineer. But by night, he’s Cryptonomatron: a producer of hot takes on the latest initial coin offerings who has more than 8,000 subscribers on YouTube.

The 43-year-old Scot’s online alter-ego is mostly a labor of love, yet it sometimes comes with an added perk: payment in digital tokens.

Surely not! I've never seen a celebrity or an expert in the field endorse any products of ordinary companies! Only evil crypto uses these shady underhanded tactics
