Bitmain hacking confusion

Bitmain users report being confused by the company's 2FA 
22 August 2017   4088

On Monday, August 21st, the reports on Bitmain, a high-end ASIC chip manufacturer and Bitcoin mining operation, being hacked began to appear on reddit.com and on the company's forum.

Thus, some of Bitmain’s customer data was allegedly compromised leading Bitmain to ask users to change their passwords. There's a screenshot of an e-mail that the user claims he received from Bitmain posted on Twitter:

According to the information the reddit.com user andonevris told ethnews.com, the greeting message did actually look like a hacking attack report:

I can confirm. I tried to log in to my account yesterday and was greeted with a message that the server had been breached and user data was stolen but was encrypted, also advised to change my password.

However, fortunately for Bitmain, the reason for the need for password changing is, probably, quite different. 

Thus, Bitmain has not confirmed the hack on any of its official channels, while many users have complained about a recently implemented two-factor authentication (2FA) process on the company’s forum. It’s possible that Bitmain hastily enacted 2FA to address the password theft. A significant number of customers did not previously have 2FA enabled and now, for some reason, when these users try to log in, the Bitmain website requests a non-existent 2FA code.

The company's representatives claim that all services of the system have been checked and no vulnerabilities were revealed.

Raven Protocol to be the First IDO at Binance DEX

Team cannot say exactly how IEO will pass, since similar campaigns hadn't been concluded at Binance DEX before, but they are going to sell $500k worth tokens

The Raven Protocol cryptocurrency project announced about the planned initial exchange offering (IEO), which will be based on the infrastructure of the Binance DEX exchange - in this case the campaign will be called IDO or Initial Dex Offering.

Raven Protocol confirmed the right to list its token on Binance DEX paired with BNB on June 17 at 9:00 UTC. At the same time, the IDO of RAVEN tokens will start. The project draws attention to the fact that neither Binance, nor Binance Chain, nor Binance DEX stand behind this initiative.

At the same time, Raven Protocol notes that it cannot say how exactly IEO will pass, since with Binance DEX, similar campaigns have not been conducted before.

Potential participants need to pass a preliminary identification by sending to the address of founders@ravenprotocol.com their address in the Binance Chain, an identity document, a selfie and proof of residence.

In total, Raven Protocol expects to raise $ 500,000 by selling 3% of its own token emission (300,000,000 RAVEN). Accommodation will be on a first come, first served basis. The limit on the amount of investment for one user is declared at the level of 100 BNB.
