Popular YouTuber and Nelk Boys Stephen Deleonardis aka SteveWillDoIt has revealed that his crypto wallet has been drained by hackers; claims surface that he may have faked it to sell merch.
The YouTuber has claimed that he has incurred heavy losses after hackers gained access to his account and drained it until there wasn’t any BTC left. Crypto has come out to be one of the most popular fields of investment in recent times and given how BTC became profitable, no wonder hackers went after it.
“I got an email on my phone [saying] someone was in my blockchain, my crypto wallet. You guys know I’m into Bitcoin,” he said. “I got hacked. I just lost a weird amount of money, and it doesn’t feel good. It’s a weird thing.
“Some nerd hacker took a lot of money, and I’ll be honest with you, it’s not looking so good right now. I don’t know what’s going to happen. We still are going to sell merch. But now I need your support more than ever.”
Soon after he revealed the incident, claims on social media surfaced that this may have been a well-plotted scheme to help them promote their latest merc. Despite nothing concrete showing up that will serve as evidence against the YouTuber.
Getting access to crypto wallets is no easy job which is why Steve’s story is hard for many to believe. Accounting for the recent fall in BTC price, it is worth well over $30,000, which means a lot if someone gets their hands on it for free.
