The Virtual Currency Girls exploded onto the scene with catchy songs and a quickly growing fan base. They touched the Japanese and international masses with songs like “The Moon and Virtual Currencies and Me”. They were also noted for their engaging live performances and unique costumes.
The flames died out all too soon for The Virtual Currency Girls, as last months CoinCheck heist has left the girl group and many others completely broke. One of their trademarks was to only receive payment in cryptocurrency. Tickets to their shows and merchandise was also to be bought with cryptocurrency. This was their way of showing their love and dedication to the rising payment method. After the tragic heist, they were offered a cash payment, but the girls refused. They were going to stand by their ideals.
Nearly a month has gone by and even broke, the girls are still refusing to take cash payments for their last performances. They are owed around $18,000 in yen, but they consistently decline a cash offering.
The girls were brought together only a month ago. They had the goal of promoting and portraying the future. They only saw the hopes and beauties that came with cryptocurrency. They could have never imagined the fraud and hacks that would arise with the popular cryptocurrency.
At the moment the popular girl group is on hold. There are no future tour dates and no recently released songs by the group. That said, once CoinCheck is able to payback their clients for the funds lost, we can expect a come back and maybe they’ll even be presents a new message regarding cryptocurrency.
As of recent, Things aren’t looking to good for CoinCheck. The exchange has concocted a recovery plan that has tons of investors pulling out funds. Some investors are even filing lawsuits against the exchange.
