Kim Kardashian Faces British Official Criticism Over Cryptocurrency Announcement

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has faced criticism from the head of Britain’s Financial Conduct Authority for promoting an untested cryptocurrency on the social networking site Instagram.

Charles Randell, the authority’s president, said Kim asked her 250 million followers to trade cryptocurrencies, through an announcement placed on her Ethereum Max account.

Randell described the coin he says Kardashian is promoting as a circulating digital currency launched by anonymous developers about a month ago.

Britain’s top financial official also accused social media influencers of promoting get-rich-quick delusions.

The head of the British regulator said that the post that Kardashian put on her account on Instagram, which he noted was classified as an advertisement by tagging it indicating that, may have been “promotion of a financial product directed to the largest audience in history.
