A since-removed tweet referred to as on Robinhood’s 1.1 million Twitter followers to every pay $0.0005 for a token referred to as “RBH” on the BNB Good Chain.
An unknown group or particular person has hacked the Twitter account behind crypto and inventory buying and selling platform Robinhood to push customers to purchase a “new” token.
Many Crypto Twitter customers reported on Jan. 25 that Robinhood had posted a tweet calling on its 1.1 million followers to every pay $0.0005 for a token referred to as “RBH” on the BNB Good Chain. Conor Grogan, the pinnacle of product enterprise operations at Coinbase, reported that no less than 10 individuals had bought roughly $1,000 value of the rip-off token earlier than the tweet was eliminated.
Doubtless as a result of invocation of Binance, CEO Changpeng Zhao reported the corporate’s safety crew had locked the account linked within the tweet “pending additional investigations”. On the time of publication, the tweet was not seen on Robinhood’s account. A Robinhood spokesperson informed Cointelegraph that the hacker — believed to be a “third get together vendor” — had made posts on the platform’s Instagram and Fb profiles as properly.
“All the time have important considering even [if] the account appears to be like or is actual,” said CZ.

Although the app facilitates the sale of many cryptocurrencies, Robinhood doesn’t have a token straight tied to the platform as RBH falsely claimed. Buyers should purchase publicity to the corporate by way of shares of HOOD listed on Nasdaq at roughly $9.71 on the time of publication.
