“Of the $ 20 I put in, they only gave me $ 13”: Youtuber Uncle Frank shared his experience buying Bitcoins

(VIDEO) The Salvadoran youtuber shared his experience when converting dollars to Bitcoins and vice versa, where he had to pay up to 10.5% commission plus a very high extra fixed charge to make use of the cryptocurrency.

The popular Salvadoran youtuber, Tío Frank, went to the beaches of El Zonte and El Tunco, in La Libertad, to see first-hand how transactions with Bitcoins work, the cryptocurrency that El Salvador recently adopted as legal tender .

In the images shared by the same youtuber, it is possible to observe how he and a companion arrive at one of the ATMs that have been installed in El Zonte, and which works to withdraw or deposit money directly into the virtual wallet.

The first steps that Uncle Frank takes in his experience are to install the Bitcoin Beach Wallet application and register through a personal account, from there, a user of the place tells him how he can do to introduce money, something that is equivalent to to buy fractions of Bitcoin.

To do the test, the youtuber scans a QR code, then the account status appears on the screen, that is, how much money you have in your virtual wallet both in dollars and BTC (short for Bitcoin).

At this moment, the young man introduces a $ 20 bill that, once registered by the cashier, shows him on the screen how much it is equivalent in BTC, at the same time that he indicates that there is a fixed charge of $ 5 for converting that physical money into cryptocurrencies.

Likewise, while the youtuber waits for the cashier to issue the receipt that proves his purchase, Uncle Frank clarifies that, despite the high value of Bitcoin in the market, it is possible to buy it in fractions, as in his case he acquired 0.0003399 BTC with $ 20.00

However, and to the surprise of the young man, when obtaining his receipt, the real charge he received for the transaction and the conversion of dollars to BTC can be observed, in which it appears that, in addition to the $ 5.00, 10.5% has been discounted. commission for the procedure.

By making accounts and checking his virtual wallet, Uncle Frank checks that the actual amount he has obtained in BTC is equivalent to $ 13.56, that is, $ 6.44 less than the value he paid for Bitcoins.

However, both the youtuber and the person who explains how the ATM works mention that the high cost of the transaction could be due to the fact that the ATM is private and that, probably, it is the owner who charges an extra commission for converting dollars to BTC.

Likewise, Uncle Frank’s companion affirms that he prefers to use traditional ATMs, because they are more practical to use and “without much flow”.

In the same video, the youtuber decides to check the cost of transactions at the Athena ATMs, located in El Zonte, where, as you can see, the commission charge is lower, but the procedure is more cumbersome.

For example, to be able to convert BTC to dollars, the user must scan a QR code, then they must wait five minutes to receive a code on the phone, then that code must be entered at the ATM, which will give them a ticket; Then, you must enter the phone number, to receive a second code that will be used to continue with the operation and, finally, you must enter another code that appears on the receipt before received and with this withdraw the money requested at the beginning of the operation.

Some of the users who commented on the video posted by Uncle Frank, stated that the commission charges are too high and that they will only generate losses in the population. Others added that if Tío Frank and his friend, who are “bugs”, find it difficult to understand the procedure, it will be more difficult with the majority of the Salvadoran population, especially merchants and entrepreneurs.

After several minutes, the youtuber was able to withdraw $ 10 from an ATM that converts BTC to dollars. Illustrative and non-commercial image / https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMpxrgLLb9E

Lawyers warn of possible penalties for Bitcoin

If it does not comply with the FATF recommendations, it could be classified as a “tax haven”.

“If the necessary measures are not adopted to manage the risks of Money Laundering and Against the Financing of Terrorism, the country could be classified, not only by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), but also by the international community as a jurisdiction vulnerable to money laundering and the financing of terrorism ”, warns Rolando Monroy, a criminal lawyer who headed the financial investigation unit of the Prosecutor’s Office.

But the consequences, according to Monroy, could be greater for El Salvador because “international organizations such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the IDB, CABEI, base a good part of their conclusions, when granting loans, on the evaluation reports carried out by FATF and regional organizations in the FATF style, in that sense they may condition the approval of credits on compliance with the standards established by FATF ”.

Given the emergence of a series of cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, Tether, Bitcoin, XPR, the FATF issued a series of recommendations that its member countries should implement, according to Monroy.

These regulations specify that countries must ensure that “Virtual Asset Service Providers (PSAVs) are subject to adequate AML / CFT regulation and supervision or monitoring.”

The application of these recommendations must be effectively complied with by member countries in order to “mitigate the risks of money laundering and terrorist financing that arise from virtual assets,” it adds.

Another of the regulations proposed by the FATF, according to Monroy, is that “PSAVs must be licensed or registered. This implies that they must be subject to a territorial jurisdiction ”and“ capture the information of the originator and the beneficiary of each operation and keep said information at the disposal of the authorities ”.

The FATF recommended the implementation of customer identification and due diligence policies (normal or extended) and take measures to identify natural or legal persons who carry out PSAV activities without a license and apply the appropriate sanctions.

“If El Salvador does not comply with the parameters established by FATF in terms of risk management associated with virtual asset services, it could perfectly be included in one of the sanction lists,” Monroy warned.

He recalled that the FATF has a system of sanctions, among these are the lists classified in colors to determine the level of risk. Among these the red, black, darkened gray and gray lists. This classification has to do with the level of risk, that is, high risk, uncooperative or more vigilant.

“Any of these designations implies a shadow in the reputation for the country that receives it,” warns Monroy.
A way to commit crimes.

It may interest you: Bitcoin Law was unconsulted and improvised, says Fusades

For her part, the criminal lawyer Marcela Galeas maintains that financial transactions through cryptocurrencies “is a way of taking advantage of anonymity to commit a crime, which opens up the possibilities for other crimes to be configured in addition to money laundering.”

These other crimes include drug trafficking, firearms smuggling, fraud, tax evasion, cyberattacks, evasion of sanctions, child exploitation and human trafficking.

Galeas recalled that the FATF warns that cryptocurrencies and the providers of these services should be the main surveillance targets to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing, according to a statement on February 25.

Galeas recommends that the standards issued by the FATF must be met or otherwise, since El Salvador could be excluded from the member countries of that international body.

“This would be a very delicate situation because the FATF identifies and publishes those countries that do not cooperate in the fight against money laundering and related crimes. The implications that they could have for the country does not necessarily close the door to international loans, ”Galeas said.

He assures that criminal activities with virtual assets have become more common and the country with the adoption of Bitcoin will be no exception.

“These virtual assets are an innovative technology to transfer value globally such as sending payments and reducing commissions,” he said.

In that sense, he believes that “El Salvador could receive a visit from a high-level mission or a letter from the president of the FATF as a form of pressure to prevent money laundering and similar crimes” or “issue a statement in which it would ask to financial institutions that pay attention to commercial relationships and transactions with people, companies or institutions that violate their standards ”.

Galeas believes that it is important to comply with international standards on the prevention and prosecution of money laundering and terrorist financing should be a priority for governments, since “non-compliance with these (standards or recommendations) would be a red flag that could be detected unusual behaviors of possible activities that could be illegal related to virtual assets ”.

Monroy says that the correct thing to do, before approving the Bitcoin Law as legal tender, should have “issued certain regulations for the use or operation of Virtual Asset Services, rather than making a law tailored to a single operator, since with this the other actors are excluded and the function of managing the risks associated with that activity is not fulfilled ”.

This is how Strike would get the dollars out of El Salvador through Bitcoin

Foreing Policy magazine explains how El Salvador could run out of dollars by adopting Bitcoin, which would be “a disaster for the country.”

The American magazine Foreing Policy published an article on Tuesday in which it analyzes the adoption of Bitcoin as legal tender in El Salvador, which it considers an unfavorable measure for the country.

“This is likely to be a disaster for the country, but it is typical of Bukele’s erratic style of government,” wrote David Gerard.

But in addition, the article explains what the remittance money transfer scheme is like that the government wants to do in association with Strike, a US payment company, which claims to make remittances using bitcoin.

SEE: Government analyzes that companies pay salaries in Bitcoin to their employees

Its CEO is Jack Mallers, who in January described how this transaction works:

• When I initiate the $ 1,000 payment, Strike debits my $ 1,000 balance with her.

• Strike then automatically converts my $ 1,000 to Bitcoins using their real-time trading and risk management infrastructure.

• Strike, then, moves the bitcoins through the Gulf of Mexico that then arrive in Central America in less than a second and at no cost.

• Strike then takes the bitcoins and automatically converts them into USDT (synthetic digital dollars known as Tether) using its real-time trading and risk management infrastructure.

• Strike credits the recipient with USDT (Tethers) to their Strike account.

The recipient of the transfer will receive Tethers and the dollars they sent will remain in the United States, with the company that issues the Tethers.

ALSO: Professionals in economics ask the Assembly to repeal the Bitcoin Law

According to Mallers, if the receiver really wants dollars, he will have to go to an ATM or an ATM (not from banks) but from the Strike company, where they will give him the dollars in exchange for the Tethers. In that change, although Mallers does not say it on this occasion, there will be a commission, which can be guessed because in similar operations the company has delivered the equivalent of $ 47 for every 50 Tethers or equivalent.

Given the magnitude of the remittances, local economists warn that in about four or five months the government would have transferred all the dollars in the country’s international reserves. The fake dollars are not accepted as reserves and cannot be used to make payments abroad. Thus, Salvadorans would lose all their savings.

According to the magazine “The Economist”, this company, to which the government would deliver the country’s dollars, has already been fined by the State of New York for lying when stating that it had covered the Tethers one by one with real dollars.

By issuing Tethers that would be used in El Salvador, the company would become the central bank of El Salvador, issuing the Tethers at will, without any endorsement, and keeping the dollars. The New York State Attorney General called the company “fraudulent.”

VIDEOS: The story behind the Ataco entrepreneur who foreigner refused to pay $ 1 for sweet bread

The viral video of the backpacker harassment has caused the small business to gain popularity and increase its profits.

Erick Rivera gained notoriety, among many Salvadorans, after he defended his rights as an entrepreneur before a foreign tourist who bought him a bread filled with jelly; but that after ten minutes he returned to his business, in Concepción de Ataco, Ahuachapán, to ask him for a refund of the dollar he had paid for the product that he had already eaten, according to the Salvadoran.

The video of the incident went viral, to the point that many people have cataloged Rivera, originally from Tacuba, in the same department, as a symbol of the struggle for Salvadoran dignity.

The Ahuachapaneco is cheerful, helpful, and likes to talk; But he also knows the rights and obligations he has because he studied legal science at a local university.

He graduated from this profession in 2005; but his passion is being an entrepreneur.

In 2009 he opened a supermarket in Tacuba, which generated sources of employment. The business had to be closed in 2018 due to the economic decline of the country, which generated few economic profits.

On Thursday, June 10, he began his working day in Concepción de Ataco, where just five days before he had reopened the sweet bread business.

He did it in a new place since during the pandemic caused by COVID-19 he had to close the business that operated for about three years in front of the house that he currently occupies, always at the entrance of said tourist municipality.

He said that on Thursday noon the tourist arrived, identified as Timmy Karter, who asked for the prices of the variety of sweet bread that he offers. The foreigner bought a bread stuffed with jelly, among other ingredients, worth a dollar.

“He went inside (from Concepción de Ataco), he was eating it; we continue to dispatch clients. Later he came back and demanding that we return the money, he had already eaten the bread. It is very illogical for someone to return without the product and request a return. To which I, precisely, told him that we could not return him because he no longer had the product and that it was not a correct action (and) that we were willing to continue serving him if he required another product, “said the entrepreneur.

The business has gained popularity among the inhabitants and tourists in Ataco. Photo EDH / Cristian Díaz

The tourist warned that he was going to turn to the police, so 15 minutes later he arrived accompanied by some agents.

“From there, everything that is in the video is known,” said Rivera, who was struck by the fact that an agent began to suggest the prices that he should sell the bread.

However, the Salvadoran pointed out that the product is not made by him; rather, he buys it from other entrepreneurs. Added to that, you must pay costs for the premises you rent, where there is also a store with basic necessities.

Rivera acknowledged that he does not stop feeling fear for the whole situation that was unleashed after the video; But all he did was defend his rights.

The questioned attitude of the backpacker

The situation has made the small bread business gain popularity among the same inhabitants and tourists who come to Concepción de Ataco every day.

“As Salvadorans, I see it well that we all defend ourselves among ourselves; If the man had his price, he fixes it well, give it at a certain cost, he has to keep himself and not just because a foreign person comes down to it. The truth was I was very admired when I saw the video and I said how could that be? Very good for the Lord ”, said the Salvadoran tourist Diego Polanco.

Some people who travel by vehicle pass by saying hello to Rivera; while others arrive and ask him if he is the man of the video or the “video of bread”.

This phenomenon has caused profits to increase by 50%.

“We have seen the support that the population has been giving us; even, local people have been coming, buying us and that has driven us a lot. It wasn’t the way to get famous; but unfortunately that was the way the circumstances were. I never wanted to damage anyone’s image; but the circumstances happened like that ”, expressed the Ahuachapaneco.

He added that he carried out the procedures to be benefited by Bandesal, but that his request for support was denied.

The entrepreneur appreciates the support:

5 cases of million-dollar scams with cryptocurrencies

The most recent case is the one that occurred in China, where 1,100 people were arrested across the country on Wednesday for being linked to a network of “fraudulent activities” related to cryptocurrencies.

The growing interest in cryptocurrencies in the world has been accompanied in recent years by the warning of international entities and organizations about the risks of being a highly volatile currency that lacks control.

Recently the cases of scams that have been on the rise. In countries such as Turkey, Spain and China, the authorities carry out large investigations in which millionaire fraud with the use of virtual money has been detected.

The volatility and lack of control of crypto assets increases the risk of illicit activities, according to expert economists in various parts of the world. Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank recently requested the global regulation of Bitcoin as it is considered a highly speculative asset.

IMF warns El Salvador of significant risks following approval of Bitcoin as legal tender

In an article published in the magazine “LÉNA hors les murs”, Lagarde points out that the blockchain, (it is used to refer to the core of crypto assets such as Bitcoin), also provide new opportunities, new risks.

“Users cannot trust crypto assets to maintain a stable value. They are highly volatile and speculative, so they do not fulfill all the functions of money, “he said in an article posted on the ECB’s website.

After El Salvador adopted Bitcoin as legal tender, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) also warned about the risks of the use of cryptocurrency which, it points out, involves a series of “macroeconomic, financial and legal” issues that must be “analyzed in depth”.

Gerry Rice, spokesman for the IMF stressed that “the use of cryptocurrencies can pose significant risks”, which is why he suggested that there should be “effective regulatory measures.”

According to data from the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC), 7,000 people declared losses worth more than 80 million dollars in this area between last October and March.

Compared to the same period last year, complaints increased almost 12-fold and the amount of money stolen increased by almost 1,000%.

These are five cases of millionaire fraud with cryptocurrencies that are being investigated by the authorities in various countries of the world.

1. More than a thousand detainees in China who formed a network of Bitcoin scammers

China had been a bastion of the Bitcoin, the most widespread of virtual currencies. But Beijing took a radical turn in 2019 and banned payments in cryptocurrencies, accused of being instruments in the service of “criminal activities.”

1,100 people were arrested across the country on Wednesday, June 9, 2021, on suspicion of being part of a “criminal organization,” according to the Ministry of Public Security.

They are accused of using cryptocurrencies to “launder money” from phone and internet scams.

The arrests took place in Beijing, the neighboring Hebei region, the Shanxi (north) region and Liaoning, a province bordering North Korea.

The authorities did not specify the amounts involved or the cryptocurrencies used.

2. Spain: The biggest cryptocurrency pyramid scam ever

The company in question is Arbistar 2.0 SL which operated in Spain and promoted itself as a platform specialized in trading, marketing analysis and software development to operate in the cryptocurrency market.

The Arbistar case became known last April. A Spanish court is investigating the case considered the largest cryptocurrency investment pyramid scam to have occurred in this country and whose amount could amount to 1oo million euros (120 million dollars). The authorities estimate that the number of those affected may reach 32,000 investors.

According to research, the company attracted investors by offering profitability of 8 and 15% per month and with practices that motivated them to invest larger amounts in the hope of having better returns.

Reference image, shows a chart of the price table of Bitcoin and other currencies. 3d illustration.

Arbistar began to be investigated after several of its clients requested to withdraw their funds last August and their request was not honored. Santiago Fuentes, who appears as the sole administrator and owner of a third of the investments, is the main investigated.

Audiencia Nacional, a Spanish court based in Madrid, has indicated that once Arbistar captured the client, he had to open an account or virtual space where he could carry out purchase and sale actions and register an electronic wallet to store the cryptocurrencies. Investors’ savings were moved to companies dedicated to the cryptocurrency business based in San Francisco and Estonia, and were then returned to the client’s electronic wallet, which in turn sent their contributions to Arbistar’s wallets, at the time the one that the contributions were outside the control of the investor.

In September Arbistar sent a series of messages to its clients and posted some videos on YouTube where it said that an error in the community bot (computer algorithm) had generated more interest than the real ones, which had caused a mismatch in the company’s accounts and in turn a liquidity problem.

Fuentes was arrested on October 22 for the crimes of aggravated fraud, falsification of commercial documents and criminal organization, while the case passed into the hands of the National High Court, the court in charge of major crimes such as organized crime. About 10 more people have an international arrest warrant.

3. Turkey: Thodex CEO flees with $ 2 billion in Turkey

Thodex, the leading cryptocurrency operator in Turkey, was the epicenter of a multi-billion dollar fraud that affected bitcoin around the world last April, after its founder and SEO, Faruk Fatih Ozer, the country’s $ 2 billion miner, affecting 391,000 investors.

After the scandal and closure of this currency exchange platform, around 70 people were arrested and another 15 were wanted by the justice, while a week after the biggest deception in the world of cryptocurrencies, bitcoin fell 9.7% after trading to $ 49,700, according to publication of specialized sites.

“The fall of bitcoin affected the rest of the cryptocurrency market that reversed the gains of the last week and affected assets such as Etherum, Binance Coin and XRP, among others,” reported the newspaper La Nación, which takes up a report from the trading site Coinmarketcrap in which it points out that the devaluation of the currency meant 18% in just one week.

The Thodex platform was out of service since last April 21, in its social networks the company indicated that it was a closure for a few hours which was later extended to five days. As panic began to spread, the company said in a statement that all of its clients would receive their savings.

Thodex was created in 2017, the date from which it became one of the main cryptocurrency trading platforms in the country thanks to its large advertising campaigns in which famous actors and some government officials participated.

4. Turkey: Vebitcoin shuts down amid fraud allegations

In the same week, another cryptocurrency platform in Turkey closed operations amid allegations of fraud. It was Vebitcoin, where four employees were arrested and a large part of its clients withdrew. The company announced the closure noting financial tensions.

“Due to recent developments in the crypto money industry, our transactions have become much more intense than expected,” the company said in a statement. Vebitcoin had a daily volume of almost $ 60 million.

The scam accusations came in the face of an imminent ban on the use of cryptocurrencies by the Turkish government in the face of a sharp drop in the local currency. In recent months, more people were looking to secure their savings through cryptocurrencies. Turkey announced a ban on this method for the payment of goods and services from April 30.

5. Group of “Fakes” Elon Musk Has Stolen $ 2 Million in Cryptocurrency Scams

The FTC (United States Federal Trade Commission) reported on May 17 that people posing as Elon Musk have stolen more than $ 2 million from investors since October 2020 in cryptocurrency scams.

This type of scam is based on “the promise that a celebrity associated with cryptocurrencies will multiply the cryptocurrencies you send to their wallet and return them to you,” according to the FTC.

The publications on his Twitter account and the public statements of Elon Musk, the head of Tesla – the American giant manufacturer of electric vehicles – usually make the price of several cryptocurrencies react sharply.

Last week, the billionaire businessman announced that Tesla would stop accepting bitcoin as a form of payment, considering that the virtual currency, whose creation requires immense amounts of energy, is too polluting.

According to the FTC, the average loss from a cryptocurrency scam is $ 1,900. It further notes that people between the ages of 20 and 49 are the most likely to be scammed.
