Despite Rumors, Piers Morgan’s â€˜Announcementâ€™ Isnâ€™t Bitcoin-Related
The well-known British journalist clarified in a tweet prior to the announcement of his new book that the announcement was not related to Bitcoin.
British journalist and TV personality, Piers Morgan, made his â€œbig announcementâ€� on Twitter on July 16 â€”Â but despite social media rumors about a potential Bitcoin endorsement it wasnâ€™t crypto-relatedÂ
Instead Morgan said heâ€™ll be launching a book related to a â€œliberal warâ€� and COVID-19 called Wake Up. Heâ€™d earlier addressed the rumours heâ€™d start providing Bitcoin advice (BTC) in the following tweet:
UPDATE: No, Iâ€™m not Ghislaine Maxwellâ€™s secret husband, nor am I transitioning, providing Bitcoin advice, quitting GMB, going vegan or replacing Jofra Archer in the Test match.
All will be revealed at high noon.

The Bitcoin joke refers to rumors that began in a thread about Morganâ€™s tweet stating that he will make a â€œbig announcement.â€�
Joking about Twitterâ€™s hack attack
Most of the replies joked about a â€œBitcoin giveawayâ€� by Morgan after the massive hack of Twitter launched on July 15 that saw some of the most high profile accounts in the world post about a BTC scam.
This isnâ€™t the first time Morgan has been tied to a crypto-related story. Since 2017, scammers have been impersonating Morgan in an advertising campaign featuring fake statements about his â€œlatest money making method.â€�
On June 16, the United Kingdom Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) launched a new system to detect and remove online fraud ads amid the rise of crypto scam ads.
