Top on the list when the hacker announced the ‘death’ of the former President and stated that he would run for President in 2024.

I’m sad to announce, my father Donald Trump has passed away. I will be running for president in 2024.’

The hacker then went on a rampage taking multiple swipes at popular figures including Elon Musk stating that he is owned by the former President. 

The mysterious entity changed the pinned tweet of Trump Jr. to an attack on President Joe Biden containing foul language. 

Normalcy was restored in less than an hour with the hacker removed. Trump Jr. responded by deleting all controversial tweets. 

Andrew Surabian, a spokesperson for Trump Jr revealed that the tweets were as a result of a hack. 

Is Richard Heart innocent? Hacker makes wild claims 

Inside the fiasco, the digital asset community was drawn when the hacker tweeted support for an embattled crypto influencer who is facing criminal charges leveled by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). 

Richard Heart is innocent, when I become President, I am going to burn the SEC” 

On July 31, the SEC charged Richard Heart for allegedly diverting at least $12 million of investor assets to purchase luxury items sports cars, watches, and The Enigma, a 555-carat black diamond.

Heart runs a YouTube channel that was used in promoting his crypto products HEX and Pulse Chain.

Per the filing, the SEC alleged that the influencer raised over $1 billion through his unregistered product, HEX by marketing it as a pathway to wealth with claims that it was “built to be the highest appreciating asset that has ever existed in the history of man.

Eric Werner, the director of SEC’s  Fort Worth offices also stressed the issues stating a need to protect investors. 

“Heart called on investors to buy crypto asset securities in offerings that he failed to register. He then defrauded those investors by spending some of their crypto assets on exorbitant luxury goods. This action seeks to protect the investing public and hold Heart accountable for his actions.”

On his part, he claims that his actions promoted free speech adding that the Commission did not show how he spent investor funds.
