The latest actions of the ruling party of Sweden, which supports the national krone and a "closed" economy, served as a motivation for the hacker actions. In addition, one of the hackers said that he considers "the actions of the socialists wrong."
In addition, in the messages of hackers it was stated that Stefan Löfven is retiring, and the "paper" money will be completely excluded. Also, hackers changed the party logo to a Bitcoin themed image.
In Sweden, the national crown was changed to Bitcoins on behalf of the leading party. Recall that our editors have already written about the state of cryptocurrency in Sweden.
