According to a tweet from a blockchain security firm CertiK, the project's smart contract was drained by a privileged "getAmount" function, available only to the protocol developer.
The scammers stole over $700,000 in USDT. The other $219,000 in altcoins were stolen across BNB Chain (formerly Binance Smart Chain), Ethereum and Polygon, using an ice phishing attack, when hackers gain access to a victim's crypto thanks to permissions given by their wallet. All social media accounts related to the project have been deleted.
