Deadly Blue Whale Challenge

What Actually is Blue Whale Game ?

When I heard about this Blue Whale Game, I thought it just as an addictive game just like Pokemon GO, But when you dig deeper you will found that this is far away from a game. The Blue Whale Challenge was originated through Russian Social media via Secret Groups and it is a Social Media Phenomenon like Harlem Shake and ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, it is not a downloadable Software or an App. When teens accept the challenge and enters into this game, then they are encouraged to complete the series of task starting from scratching one of the Game Hashtag "f57" on their arm with a Razor and ends with taking their own Lives in order to Win.

Blue Whale Challenge is aliased by many other names including "A Sea Of Whales", "Wake Me Up At 4:20am". The players has to complete 1 task within a day, so it takes 50 days to complete all 50 tasks. The Game is played via a popular Russian social network website, VKontakte.

Why this Challenge is known as Blue Whale?

If you ever heard about Blue Whale's Life and Death phenomenon, then you will find the similarity. According to a belief, In order to End their Life Blue Whale Voluntarily Kill themselves.

The challenge is very popular among 12-25 years Russian kids since its very beginning, and its popularity has been grown to Central Asian countries, and according to some reports it is also spreading across UK and Europe. According to Russian Media, The Blue Whale Challenge is blamed as the reason behind the Suicides of 70-150 Russian Kids from October 2015 to April 2016.

How Candidates are Selected for this Challenge?

There are several Death & Suicide Groups on that Russian Social Network site VKontakte, the Curator (Administrator) find players from those groups. According to a report Russian Police have shut down several of those groups but as soon as police deleted those groups, new groups were made.

How to play Blue Whale Challenge?

Once the Curator selects any Candidate, they are given their the First Simple Task, the first task can be anything like listening to a certain song, scratching whale symbols on your skin, waking up at unusual time or watching unsettling videos. The First task of Blue Whale Challenge comes around 4:20 -4:30 AM. Every time you completes a task, you need to provide a Photograph or Video for the proof of Completion to the Curator or Administrator.

Blue Whale Player Rina Palenkove

Rina Palenkove, An 18 Year old Girl took this selfie In December 2015 and posted online some moments before jumping in front of an on going train. The Train Driver tried to stop the train but the due to speed he didn't succeed and the Girl got killed by the Impact. Along-with the Selfie that girl posted "Goodbye" Status on her different social media networks. After her death several groups on Vk.com and other sites shared that selfie claiming that the girl was part of their group.

In Early Months of 2017, 15 years old Yulia Konstantinova and 16 years old Nika Volkova, took their lives by jumping together from the top of a 14 storey-building and this incident is directly related to Blue Whale Challenge. Before Jumping Nika posted "Sense is Lost.... End." on VKontakte and Yulia changed her status on VKontakte to 'END' & posted A Picture of Blue Whale on Instagram and other Social Media. There were some connections between the 70-150 Suicide of Russian Kids and the Blue whale challenge and similar games, but due to lack of evidence no concrete links were confirmed by Police.

"There are 130 Children Suicides from November 2016 to March 2017 in Russia and all the victims were members of same Suicide Group" - Novaya Gazeta

Being members of Same group doesn't means the Admins of that Group encouraged teens to take their lives. An Russia has high suicide rate among teenagers. In 2013 around 460 teenagers committed suicide. And Blue Whale Challenge is not officially found the cause behind the increase in the suicide rate.

These So called Death And Suicide Groups, convenience teenagers for suicide by telling them they are ugly looking, dumped, losers etc.and they also tell them about another world where those kids will be with among the chosen ones.

Do you Still want to Play Blue Whale Challenge?

Assuming that the Blue Whale Challenge exist and you are still desperate to play the game then it's going to very hard to find and enter into the game. You wouldn't find the solution on Google or Facebook Groups, according to some reports the Game works in some secret groups and Private Chats.

As I have told you the Curator and the Admins choose their candidates through the Death and Suicide Groups, so there is nothing you can do to enter into this game, all you can do is to join few popular secret death and suicide groups. You might be eager to join because you want to expose the curator and other admin, but keep one thing in your mind, those people who encourage others to take their own life or someone else's life, are sick and you don't even have slight idea about what those sick people can do and what they are capable of.

Clicking on suspicious links might lead into downloading vulnerable files into your system that allow hackers to enter into your system and steal your personal files and then blackmail you to enter into the game, so be alert before clicking suspicious links or downloading suspicious files.
