A variation of this message now appears in Philippine Blockchain Week’s social media page:
The organizers have not mentioned names of “all the parties involved” as stated above, but mentioned updating the community.
The Philippine Blockchain Week, which ran from September 19 to 21, 2023, featured discussions on blockchain, fintech, the metaverse, regulation, AI, privacy, and DeFi. However, controversy emerged upon the discovery of “Miss Universe Coin” being presented during the event.
Some of the benefits of Miss Universe Coin are as follows:
- Access to events
- Gifts to “cheer up” contestants via the MU FC PLatform
Miss Universe Coin is set to be “positioned to outshine SHIB”, referring to the meme cryptocurrency with a current market capitalization of $4.3 billion.
On Saturday, the parent company of the Miss Universe brand, Thailand-based JKN Global Group, issued a stern statement, denying any involvement with Miss Universe Coin and vowing to pursue legal action.
This is a developing story.
