Our Discord got hacked today.

A letter to the Fractal community

Dear Fractal community,

Earlier today, approximately 373 of our community members fell victim to a scam posted on our Discord. We are sorry. We are going to make this right.

The hacker made out with ~800 sol (~$150,000) by managing to post a fake mint link in our #announcements channel. With over 100,000 members in our community, it’s quite impressive that the hacker only managed to dupe .3% of our community.

Here are the things we are doing to address this:

We must all be careful out there, as the next exploit might be much larger and Fractal will likely not be in a position to cover potential future losses. As we’ve said to the community, Fractal’s NFT airdrop is and always was intended to be free. In this case, the hacker was requesting 1 SOL to “mint”. Their story didn’t make much sense. If something doesn’t feel right in crypto, please don’t proceed, even if at first it looks legitimate. We must use our best judgement as there’s no “undo button” in crypto. Fractal will not charge you for any NFT airdrops.

When we chose our twitter handle @fractalwagmi, this is what we meant. WAGMI. Stay safe out there, frens. And happy holidays!

- Fractal team
