The Xvg Verge currency saga continues.

in crypto2crypto •  6 months ago

So a few weeks back the xvg blockchain had fallen under attack to malicious miners. These miners had found a exploit and got away with of $300k before the Dev stepped in.

The Dev initially denied the exploit until OCminer a respected member in the mining community called him out on Bitcointalk. Only after being called out did the dev finally begin work on a fix.

This is where things get funny, the dev did a quick patch job merging code from another coin, this fixed nothing. Next he rolled out a new wallet update that literally forked the coin. So naturally he had to roll it back, and finally got the band aid on correctly.

Here we are today the same attackers are exploiting the chain with a slightly modified hack.

So anyone mining XVG for the time being just stop and save your electricity. You will be mining orphans for a while.

Even monero and zcash have been delisted from some exchanges due to privacy, so the next coin will be xvg I think if it has so many flaws.

Well they are not really private so I doubt they have that problem LMAO

We all know verge is even worse than dash in privacy. However atleast dash stopped promoted it as such. Verge hiding txs by ip what a joke. Paying to get on a porn site....
Honestly they really need to stop. It just darkdogrco8. With a new name.

LMAO yea that pretty much sums it up. I don't know if you saw when the pivx dev exposed the IPs on the network.

I'm not saying that I agree with what these hackers are doing, however if somebody isn't going to guard their chicken coop and a fox sneaks in and then once they realize the fox is there, they do next to nothing to fix it.... Well they probably deserve to lose a few chickens. 😀 This guy probably knows the hackers. Probably benefiting from the hack.

It is t.me/junaidi1368

Interesting. I wonder if they themselves exploit it as well and thats why there was not a proper fix or just incompetence.
POS haters take note.

·

Personally at this point it feels like the dev himself is doing this. Why else would he ignore the first one for so long?

I had similar thought

Hackers are amazing 😂

This pathetic. While, you are running something like this or moniroring it, you have to do it properly.
