There is a high possibility for an inside job.

How this could've been prevented

  • Use PGP to sign & communicate
  • Use an ENS (.eth) linked to the crowdsale Address, much harder to fake.
  • Do NOT use Slack. Very easy to hack/spam, hard to admin. not meant for huge random crowds.
    • Use Discord instead

Don't ever use any links for an ICO. You go to the site direct and your wallet direct. I guess in this case though, everyone got scammed.
