THE BRAVE NEW WORLD OF SPAM 2.0
I am a Gmail user, and I filter all my mailboxes through Gmail. I don’t find spam too annoying at the moment because Google catches almost all spam before it reaches my inbox. If anything, I find false positives (legitimate mail sent to spam) more annoying than false negatives (spam in the inbox). But that could change with new generations of blockchain-based spambots.
It’s a story as old as time, or at least as old as the Internet. Spammers have always found new creative ways to invade our mailboxes, and they have always been early adopters of new Internet technologies.
Now, they are invading the blockchains of Bitcoin and the emerging crypto-economy.
