So you’re cruising on YouTube, watching your favorite ASMR video or whatever is cool these days. Suddenly, an advertisement pops up about some obscure product you swear you only mentioned to your ex-best friend from high school drunk in the bar last Friday. So what’s the deal? You’re not alone. Crypto investors are starting to this YouTube conspiracy is brainwashing them and the whole world.
YOUTUBE CONSPIRACY: GOOGLE IS LISTENING TO CRYPTO INVESTORS
Listen up, crypto investors. This is no YouTube conspiracy. It’s the truth. Well, sort of. Both Apple and Google were asked by US lawmakers to reveal if they were secretly spying on its users. In this letter, the committee suggests that the Android and OSX phones we carry around every day may actually be tracking our locations and also listening to our conversations via the device’s microphones. Reports came back saying yes, a smartphone can collect audio data from a user if they say a trigger word like “hi Siri’ or “okay Google.” But do the companies use this information for their own benefit?
YOUTUBE CONSPIRACY: BRAINWASHING CRYPTO INVESTORS FOR PROFIT
So you have a smartphone in your pocket and you’re casually talking about crypto with your friend. Suddenly, every ad on YouTube seems to be related to cryptocurrency investment. You can’t help but give in since you’re interested in the subject anyway. In the end, you get what you wanted. YouTube uses this as an excuse to justify their actions. They are simply helping to connect crypto investors to what they need in life. Call it whatever you want, but this is a clear cut case of privacy invasion. So how do we stop it?
YOUTUBE CONSPIRACY: CRYPTO INVESTORS SHOULD AVOID BIG CORPORATIONS
Forget Google, Apple and any mainstream corporation for that matter. A new, burgeoning economy is being built with cryptocurrency. Before it gets eaten up by corporate greed, use it to avoid these evil companies. Instead of going to a bank for a loan, go to YouHodler and take out an instant loan up to $30,000 using your crypto as collateral. Instead of playing the stock market, go to Kraken exchange and learn to trade crypto. All in all, support this new economy and maybe we can put the power back in the hands of the people
