Blue Whale basically gets its name from beached whales that get stranded and die. Reports of deaths linked to the Blue Whale challenge go back to 2015, and started in Russia. This game asks gamers to complete and upload videos of a series of dares over 50 days, which includes the participants to watch horror and psychic movies, cut their hands with blades and needles, carving a blue whale on one’s arm and take the extreme steps of committing suicide. Every time you complete a task, you must send photographic or video proof to an administrator or “curator.” Reportedly, uptill now there have been some 100 deaths across the world linked to the deadly game.

In an interview this year, he said he made the game to “clean society,” as people who participated in it were “biological waste.” He has been jailed for three years. It remains unclear who is the current administrator now, and how many of them exist.
