Reportedly Blocks & # 39; 200 & # 39; Links from Andreas Antonopoulos & # 39; & # 39; Mastering Ethereum & # 39;


Social media commentators are criticizing the (Bitly) URL shortening service after a Twitter user warned Andreas Antonopoulos on November 3 that the service had stuck crypto-related links from his book.

Antonopoulos, author of several well-known Bitcoin guides, questioned Bitly on Twitter about the block, which allegedly extends to over 200 links in "Mastering Ethereum", which will be published in about four weeks.

"Why do you block links from to crypto-currency sites?", He asked, adding:

"I am about to publish my fourth book and it contains about 200 links If you are going to block the links, I will have to remove all the 200 and replace them with a competitor[.]"

It seemed that Bitly had not responded publicly at the time of the press on November 5, while commentators were ready to come to the defense of Antonopoulos, demanding a move away from the "centralized" abbreviations.

Responding to his tweet, a user has paraphrased the well-known piece of sound of Antonopoulos on the property of Bitcoins that appears regularly in the speeches and sessions of questions and answers online.

"Do not rely on a bitly service or ANY shortener, they're all a single point of failure," one he wrote, adding:

"Not your keys, not your bitcoins, not your (shortening), not your link."

Last week, Antonopoulos' famous book, "Mastering Bitcoin", stirred up controversy after Chinese state television unexpectedly showed it, revealing that the Mandarin version of its title lacked all references to Bitcoin.
