But for real… F*ck Scammers.
In light of recent attacks on Pancake Bunny and other projects, it’s a good time to really think about security and what that means. In the end, everyone wants to take your money.
One of the best things about DEFI and crypto in general, is that you are responsible for your funds. How and what you invest in, where you keep your funds, and what you want to do with them, is entirely up to you. You should be able to do what you please with your hard earned funds.
However, this environment creates a breeding ground for the worst of human garbage, the scammers. Some scams can be simple, and some, as with the Pancake Bunny attack, are quite complex. Others scams like rug pulls are simply just orchestrated by walking human excrement, the lowest common denominator of all mankind.
The simplified version (and my simple mind’s understanding) of the Pancake Bunny attack, is that the hacker exploited how Bunny tokens were minted, by using a flash loan to wrap a large amount of WBNB (and then did some hacker magic) causing a mass minting of Bunny Tokens which were then dumped immediately. This same attack took place a short while after on another project that had forked Bunny.
While all $CRUSH will be minted at TGE, and no more can be minted ever, we are not suceptible to this specific attack. However, there are always precautions that need to be in place, and we will continue to work hard on protecting, auditing, and implementing security measures wherever, and however possible, by all mean necessary.
Here’s some things you yourself can do to stay protected.
- Never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever give someone your seed phrase, wallet password, or private key. Just don’t. You will lose everything. It doesn’t matter what they tell you. They’re lying. Just don’t do it. Ever.
- We will never DM you first in Telegram. If you ask us a question, scammers will come to your aid pretending to be us. They will pick a similar user name, steal our images, whatever they need to do, to steal your funds. If someone dms you pretending to be us, even if you’re unsure or suspicious, report them to us right away.
- Beware of fake “$CRUSH” tokens and contracts. It’s super super easy to deploy a token, and even verify it and add liquidity, in hopes people will think they are getting in early. The scammer will wait until people swap, and then remove liquidity you’ll be left holding worthless fake tokens. Only after liquidity has been added by us, will we share the official address. Just be careful, and only engage with the contracts we officially post in our channels or website.
- Never click random links, or connect your wallet to shady Defi apps. Scams are getting sophisticated and approving defi apps is getting more risky as time goes on. If something seems off, just get out of there. It’s not worth it.
Anyhow, these are just a few suggestions, but we’d love to hear from you. Hop in our Telegram and let us know what other security precautions you take.
Stay safe and …
