Pablo Escobar’s brother launches cryptocurrency: Diet Bitcoin

Diet Bitcoin / Pablo Escobar

The Blockchain space is really full of surprises. It seems that Roberto Escobar, the biological brother of the notorious drug trafficker Pablo Escobar, has launched his own cryptocurrency: Diet Bitcoin (DDX).

A Frok of the Bitcoin network, the new currency promises to offer a faster and lighter alternative to Bitcoin. The eponymous venture investment company Roberto, Escobar Inc., currently offers an initial offer of coins (ICO), where users can buy the chip with a discount of 96 percent: up to $ 2 from $ 50.

The Diet Bitcoin website says that the total supply of 1,000,000 DDX will be divided into three separate windows: 300,000 DDX will be sold for $ 50 (currently discounted $ 2), another 300,000 will go for $ 100 for one currency, and the remaining 400,000 will be priced at $ 1,000.

But this should not worry you too much, according to Escobar Inc’s COO, Daniel Reitberg.

“Everyone should listen to this news, go to and buy as many dietbitcoins as they can,” Reitberg said. “The value will be very high since we are identical in number to Bitcoin, except that now we are 4000 times cheaper.”

“Why would someone on the planet buy bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency in which there is no real team behind it,” Escobar CEO Olof Gustafsson reiterated in an uproar? “We at Escobar Inc are committed to fully support the cryptocurrency diet bitcoin and are managing the daily operations of this new currency”



Author’s note: Personally I would not buy this cryptocurrency, it reminds me a lot of Petro and I even believe that they use the “popularity” of the Escobar surname to sell something. If anyone does, he is more than invited to share an article in Tecnología Press.
