A dubious distribution of cryptocurrency

It had all the signs of a classic Twitter fraud: a dubious distribution of cryptocurrency for $ 20 million and a mandatory reference to Ilon Mask. Except that this is not a fraud, but simply the self-promotion of Tron CEO Justin San:
To celebrate the success of BTT, USDT / TRON, I plan to spend an $ 20 million eirdrop. Good news – this will happen soon, bad news – I can decide to distribute more! First, I will randomly choose one person who wins Tesla before 3/27! To participate, subscribe to me and retweet! Simply!
Sana’s tweet apparently scared even some of his most trusting supporters. After a few hours, he was forced to post another tweet in which he explained that his account was not hacked and that he was really going to play Tesla.
But the post still resembles the presentation style used by the authors of these ubiquitous fraudulent tweets: “distribution”, in which trusting investors send cryptocurrency to a certain address, and a celebrity — usually Ilon Mask himself — returns them “with X”.
