Linus Tech Tips is no longer accessible due to crypto scammers' hacking attempts, which were quickly blocked due to users' prompt responses. LTT is aware of the incidents and has maintained a public forum. Sadly, some of the original videos were deleted from the channel.
Users who had subscribed to the channel's notifications received a message about the show... Tesla. It surprised particularly those who are not subscribed to the manufacturer of electric vehicles' channels. The channel itself appeared to be as shown in the screenshots.
Linus Tech Tips was banned from YouTube until a live broadcast was held on bitcoin. At the moment, when you go to its address, you can see the YouTube monkey – "page is not available".
This isn't the first instance of its kind. We already covered a similar incident in September 2022: cryptocurrency scammers staged a fake Apple broadcast, which attracted tens of thousands of viewers. It's important to keep your original content in place when responding quickly.
