Hackers stole money from investors of another crypto-currency project. This time it is ICO Experty. A few days before the start of the main part of the campaign, scammers stole $ 150,000. This is reported by Finance Magnates.

Their target was one of the organizers who collected information about potential ICO investors. Hackers get the names of investors, their email and ETH-addresses. Using the received data, they carried out an email spamming with the invitation to take part in the pre-ICO. In the letter they said that investors need to transfer ETH within 12 hours if they want to get more tokens.

The letter also indicated the address for the transfer of funds, and the attackers used several addresses at once.

Many investors believed this letter. Over the past few days, 74 transactions have been sent to hackers for a total of about $ 150,000.

The Experty team responded to the incident and promised to compensate for the loss of the affected users by issuing EXY tokens and a bonus.

We are greatly saddened by the recent email scam that has targeted our community due to the recent data breach. We will be contacting the victims that are in our database in order to distribute the proportional amount of EXY tokens to them, including the bonuses for their tier, from our company allocation. If someone wishes to receive ETH instead, we ask them to please contact us privately about this.

The initial exchange placement (IEO) of the TOP Network project on the Huobi Prime platform that started today attracted no less attention than the similar campaigns on the Binance Launchpad. This is evidenced by the speed with which all the tokens allocated for the first round were purchased.

A number of investors in social networks reported technical problems that prevented the purchase of tokens, which, as in the case of the Binance Launchpad, are likely to be caused by an excessive load on the stock exchange infrastructure during the crowdsale.

The next round starts at 3/26 21:30 UTC+8, despite the fact that users did not use the 20 minutes set aside for trading, TOP Network reports.

For the two following rounds, 450,000,000 TOP and 750,000,000 TOP were allocated, respectively.
