Is it an advertisement?
While BNB, DGB and TRX are well-known cryptocurrency projects in the market, the other three are much smaller and lesser known cryptocurrencies in terms of market value. This has led to the belief that the post in question may be for advertising purposes. As is known, in the past, some famous names from the rap world, including DJ Khaled, took part in ICO promotions and were fined by the SEC for advertising without revealing that they were paid.
