This decision was made primarily in order to ensure integrity of the funds from any centralized platforms able to censor funds Escobar, because they will almost entirely be focused on the overthrow of the trump.

Escobar Inc. also intends to compete with the world’s most popular stable coin, Tether (USDT), which, in the opinion of the company, is not credible.

After receiving $ 10 million in just 10 hours, we were closed GoFundMe and within 24 hours launched a stable cryptocurrency ESCOBAR, lest we subjected to censorship.

“Yes, we had plans to release this cryptocurrency in 2019 as an alternative stable coin Tether. We don’t trust USDT. We believe that people need to use our coin, because we have a much broader business application than most other companies, and Roberto Escobar earned hundreds of billions of dollars during his career,” said Daniel Radberg, chief operating officer Escobar Inc.

This is not the first cryptocurrency project from Roberto Escobar and Escobar Inc. In the beginning of last year they launched a fork of bitcoin called Bitcoin Diet, which was supposed to be much cheaper and faster than Bitcoin.

In support of this hard forks was also released a book where Roberto wrote about the fact that Satoshi is the CIA and ultimately Managing sell all your coins that will inevitably destroy Bitcoin.
