HYBE seeks to resolve the controversy that has been created around the new cryptocurrency called ‘ARMY Coin’ supposedly created by the BTS fandom.
BTS has a great fandom, its fans are spread all over the planet and there is no country that does not have at least one Bangtan Sonyeondan fan supporting and loving their favorite K-Pop group; always characterized by the great achievements that he has achieved alongside Bangtan.
ARMY always demonstrates the great impact that the Bangtan Boys leave on each fan, with positive actions and an amazing job in each release, the boy band knows very well that thanks to the support of the fans it is that they have earned the place where is it so.
Although ARMY always helps to protect BTS, there is never a lack of those who seek to take advantage of the image of the band and even their fans, there are haters who also tend to work and try to represent a threat to the great team that the fans and Bangtan have formed.
This time, someone has used the image of BTS and ARMY for a new cryptocurrency, HYBE will take legal action against those responsible because both names are being used without due permission.
