In order to solve this issue and prevent further problems, Waves decided to partner with cybersecurity firm Group-IB, a global leader in combating high-tech crime and online fraud.
Decentralising value requires a new paradigm, and it’s important for users to remember that the flipside of being in control of their own funds is that there is no authority to reverse a fraudulent transaction. We would therefore urge our community to be vigilant of such phishing attempts and report and malicious sites and links immediately.
