Welp, AsiaOne’s now big enough to be used as part of a cryptocurrency scam

Well, well, well. It seems that AsiaOne has garnered enough internet clout to be brandished as a platform to scam folks into purchasing cryptocurrency that hasn’t even been launched yet.

The very legit-sounding Calibra-Pay went ahead and cloned the design of an AsiaOne article — an article that shills the benefits of Facebook’s upcoming cryptocurrency, Libra. The byline-less article goes on to state that Libra can only be bought from Calibra-Pay, which claims to be “Facebook’s approved partnering firm”. 

A nominal check around the AsiaOne office revealed that none of us actually cared that much about Libra — or even cryptocurrency for that matter — to sneakily publish a piece lauding the benefits of digital money.
