Reliance Jio Has Not Launched Any JioCoin Application, Don’t Fall for the Fake Apps on Google Play Store

How many times have you seen a company issuing a press statement for some non-relevant news? Well, here’s one such case. Reliance Jio has just issued a media statement stating that the company has not launched any JioCoin application. Wondering why Jio issued a statement? Well, there’s a reason behind that. At least 22 applications are found on JioCoin name on Google Play Store, which is leading users to believe that they’re Jio’s official applications, especially after the recent report of Jio working on a Cryptocurrency named JioCoin.

“Reliance Jio has come across reports in media and other websites about the existence of purported JioCoin Apps on the Internet that are soliciting investments in cryptocurrencies from people. Reliance Jio would like to inform the public and media that there are no such apps offered by the company or its affiliates/ associates. Any such apps using the JioCoin name are fake, and people are advised to refrain from dealing with any of them,” said Jio in the statement released a while back.

The statement further added, “Reliance Jio takes a serious note of such fraudulent attempts by unscrupulous persons to misguide the public in the name of Jio and reserves the right to take appropriate legal recourse.”

This is what Google said earlier today in the article about Google Play privacy violation rules, which allowed the company to remove as many as 700,000 apps from the largest app store. And this falls into the category of Copycat. You can read that article by heading over here.

And there’s a reason behind Jio releasing this statement because when you type JioCoin in Google Play Store, the first app on the list with ‘Jio Coin’ moniker shows the app developer as Reliance Digital. The funny part is the app has already received more than 10,000 installs, which explains the entire scenario.

Also, do make a note that all the Jio official applications are listed with ‘Reliance Jio Digital Services Pvt Ltd’ developer name.

Lol….those who can’t buy Bitcoin buying this??? Then Chakri could be the reason for those app installs. U fools don’t understand the purpose of a crypto coin?? Jio coin against Indian rupee coin is madness in first place… editors here mad just like those who installed?? Again Jio will use blockchain and at max jio will add jiocoin for Jio tariff plans. Where 1Rs=1jiocoin…still this will be treated as madness. When crypto is under 1 hand and against Indian money that to fixed rate makes nonsense.
