Today russia / putin made news saying Bitcoin is not worthless and has a right to exists. So Putin basically basically acknowledges it, without too much of a rating or opinion. [Source](https://www.banklesstimes.com/2021/10/14/putin-says-crypto-is-not-worthless/)
However I find it incredibly funny how the headline of this news changed over the last couple of hours. Just some examples in chronological order (Note I picked the headlines from the posts of this sub):
* [Putin Says Crypto Is “Not Worthless”](https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/q7vh9j/putin_says_crypto_is_not_worthless/)
* [Russia’s Putin says crypto has ‘value’](https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/q7vih3/russias_putin_says_crypto_has_value_but_maybe_not/)
* [Vladimir Putin Says He Accepts Crypto’s Role in Making Payments](https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/q7w6dl/vladimir_putin_says_he_accepts_cryptos_role_in/)
* [Chad Putin Gives Crypto The Greenlight, Wants You To Put It In](https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/q7wjbb/chad_putin_gives_crypto_the_greenlight_wants_you/)
So well, I’m not to deep into russia and their opinion on BTC, but a lot must have happened there today…
Seriously however. This is not the first time I have seen news evolve like this. Please guys, always remember to fact check.
tl;dr: Always fact check news first – especially when found in echo chambers.
