Bitcoin targets ill-informed buyers ‘caught up in the spiral of greed’, according to Harris, leading to a huge killer rich bitcoin stock of wealth from ordinary families to internet scammers.

In an opinion piece for Recode, Harris wrote: ‘Bitcoin is a scam. In my opinion, it’s a colossal pump-and-dump scheme, the likes of which the world has never seen.

And some cryptocurrencies are pure frauds.
