So they took advantage of the mis spelling and created this malicious website. If you directly type it to your browser, and make the mistake, you will surely fall for this trap. So bookmark it and check even the spelling just to make sure.
2  Economy / Scam Accusations / Be careful with this so called Integration Wallet website on: January 11, 2021, 08:22:14 AM
Be careful with this so called integration wallet around, I'm seriously doubt that it is work as design as you have to enter your seed or recovery phrase. I'm trying to find out if there is such real application out there, but so far I can't find any deducing that this is a malicious site who's intention to steal our crypto. Or if there is a legit site, this is obviously a clone and fake.

Code:
https://www.integrationwallet.com/

Not just bitcoin wallet, but almost all popular altcoins wallet like MEW and MetaMask. So be careful with this, if you have encounter it, kindly report it to Google or to the registrar themselves

This supposedly trading platform from coingecko has everything a fake site it. First there is no coingecko trading or exchanges that I'm aware of. Second, it was just created 24 days ago and obviously, using the logo of coingecko as well.

So please be careful not to be fooled by this website, just because it has the coingecko logo and name does it mean it is trusted.

A lot of this scams are popping in high numbers right now because altcoin market is having a bull run of their own.

And that's why scammers are also very quick on creating a lot of fake websites to trap and fall for this scheme. It will be a pity if someone fall for this and I do hope that one one will be a a casualty here.

Binance Will List Frontier (FRONT) in the Innovation Zone

Quote
Fellow Binancians,
Binance will list Frontier (FRONT) in the Innovation Zone and we will open trading for FRONT/ETH and FRONT/BUSD trading pairs at 2020/11/18 8:00 AM (UTC). Users can now start depositing FRONT in preparation for trading.

Reminder: The Innovation Zone is a dedicated trading zone where users are able to trade new, innovative tokens that are likely to have higher volatility and pose a higher risk than other tokens.
Before being able to trade in the Innovation Zone, all users are required to visit the web version of the Innovation Zone trading page to carefully read the Binance Terms of Use and complete a questionnaire as part of the Initial Disclaimer. Please note that there will not be any trading restrictions on trading pairs in the Innovation Zone.

https://www.binance.com/en/support/announcement/267c7759507a49c08afc18606188014e

I just look at the current price and it seems the pump is over:



https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/frontier

Lol, that's the nature of crypto though, it will be pump once there is a news coming from Binance like this, I do hope that there are traders here who join the bandwagon early and made profit out of this pump.

Personally, I late though, I just got this news from one of my Twitter group, unfortunately, didn't see it in time. But let's see, maybe there is a second wave of pump for all we know.
10  Bitcoin / Legal / Australian man charge over his involvement in Bitconnect scam on: November 17, 2020, 09:57:04 AM
Quote
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has announced the former Australian promoter of BitConnect has been charged for his involvement in the folded cryptocurrency project that was accused of scamming millions out of investors.

ASIC said John Louis Anthony Bigatton promoted the cryptocurrency platform before its collapse in early 2018, alleging the man from Carss Park in NSW was the Australian national promoter of Bitconnect from around 14 August 2017 to 18 January 2018.

ASIC alleges Bigatton operated an unregistered managed investment scheme, known as the BitConnect Lending Platform, in Australia and that he provided unlicensed financial advice on behalf of another person in, amongst other things, seminars he conducted at various locations around Australia.

https://www.zdnet.com/article/aussie-bitconnect-promoter-charged-over-his-involvement-with-alleged-crypto-scam/

It's good to see that those behind this crypto scam are now being charge. And it seems that Bigatton really involved himself here, knowing or unknowingly part of the scam as he himself led seminars and mislead crypto investors that time.

It also says that in total of four charges against him, 10 years imprisonment and a fine of AU$945,000. Oh well, at least justice could be served here.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Another Defi Hack: Origin Dollar Loses $7 million on: November 17, 2020, 09:01:27 AM
https://medium.com/originprotocol/urgent-ousd-has-hacked-and-there-has-been-a-loss-of-funds-7b8c4a7d534c

Quote
The Origin Dollar (OUSD) has been hacked. The team is all-hands on deck attempting to figure out what vulnerability was exploited and how the hacker was able to access users’ deposits. Expect an updated post within an hour.

This transaction seems to be the root of the attack:

https://etherscan.io/tx/0xe1c76241dda7c5fcf1988454c621142495640e708e3f8377982f55f8cf2a8401

At this time, there has been a loss of funds of around $7M, including over $1M of funds deposited by Origin and our founders and employees. We will be working tirelessly until we can determine the cause of the exploit and whether we will be able to recuperate these funds. We are very incentivized to give 1000% in resolving the issue in whatever way possible.

We have disabled deposits to the vault. Please do not buy OUSD on Uniswap or Sushiswap as the current prices do not reflect OUSD’s underlying assets.

This is a quickly moving process, and our entire team has been mobilized to tackle this crisis. We will be making frequent updates via our blog, Telegram, Twitter, and Discord. In times of crisis, it is important that we are fully transparent and accountable. We are ready to answer your questions.

At this time, we would like to extend our sincerest and deepest apologies to those early OUSD users that have deposited funds with us. We very much valued and appreciated your early bet on our new product, and we will work tirelessly to get to the bottom of this.

We are not going away. This is not a rug pull or internal scam. Despite this setback, it is very much in our intention to make OUSD a safe, secure, and successful product that builds on the broader Origin mission of peer-to-peer commerce. We are sorry for the events of today, and we will carry this burden forward to do better.

So unfortunate that this is the fourth hack of the month. The attack was thru "re-entrancy" bug, it was the some bug exploited by hacker during the DAO hack.

I don't know how long can we take this attack on this Defi hype, millions have already been lost to this criminals and obviously investors is on the losing end here.

https://twitter.com/CryptoWhale/status/1327049480483508225

Really ironic and comedy to most, but this is the reality. At $3800, people are still not buying and looking for more dip, and majority are shouting that it is the end of bitcoin.

Fast track to November, the opportunity to scoop cheap bitcoin is no longer present, and yet everyone wanted to join the bandwagon and extremely bullish to even predict a six digits as the next all time high.

You can also read some nice article here: 2020 Masters leaderboard breakdown, scores: Dustin Johnson in complete control after scorching Saturday .

Anyhow, just opening this thread and hope that some golf gamblers will come out and give their analysis of the current leader board or if there is a possibility of upsets.

https://twitter.com/CNBCTheExchange/status/1325887078987689985

And he also admitted that he is old and traditional, but he thinks that bitcoin together with gold is the best investment vehicle now. And the list grows like everyday, billionaire investors are not seeing bitcoin as really the best asset to invest as store of value.

I put them side by side for you to see that there's not much difference and you can easily fall for it specially if you are not checking the URL.

I can't find the ANN thread of dice2.win, but I got a few hits when I do some search, so definitely, this site is well known to many gamblers since 2019.

https://twitter.com/amanusk_/status/1313070958794727430

What happened?

- A yield farming platform called Unicats supposedly stole least $200,000 worth of crypto from users as per Alex Manuskin

- it alleges that the developer put a backdoor on the Smart Contract code to be able to stole from it's users

So this is another expensive lessons to learn, the DEFI hype is still peaking and are not yet done. And I'm guessing that there could be more victims specially blindly trusting any projects who's developer are taking advantage of the complete anonymity in the crypto sphere.
