Enigma Catalyst Hacked! Telegram, Slack, Mailchimp All Compromised!

UPDATE: The Enigma team posted this in Telegram and Slack:


Earlier today the Enigma Catalyst team was hacked and Guy sent out the following message:

I woke up with 7000 messages pending in their Telegram channel. The community was quick to release a response:

TO ALL POTENTIAL INVESTORS: DO NOT SEND ANY ETHER TO THE EMAIL YOU RECEIVED. We have been notified and thus our web (enigma.co/) have been shut temporarily. All Ether transacted to the wrong address will NOT be fulfilled as per our FAQs.

This is our Ether address and you should only send it to: 0x92ba9526e65d682700EaE640f34E43483FAB41b5
LAST 1500 ETH available for PRESALES.

PRESALE: 0x92ba9526e65d682700EaE640f34E43483FAB41b5
Send to the above Ether address.
1ETH: 500ENIGMA TOKENS (+20% if u send within 24hours from now!)

It’s unfortunate that their communication channels were hacked. Their ICO is shaping up to be one of the biggest in recent times. Their Telegram channel has over 4500 people in it and Slack even more.

So far the hack has resulted in 450,000 USD in funds being transferred to this wallet.


In what can only be described as ironic, someone transferred 1337 FUCK tokens to the wallet as well.

I hope this doesn’t put investors off their great project over the next few days. They have an amazing project and it’s going to be huge long term. They will need to do a complete overhaul of their security measures to reestablish trust with the community and push onwards to a successful crowd sale. I had a chance to talk with guy before this whole project blew up in popularity and they have huge long term goals to become the next data pay wall, where all financial and other important data is stored on their protocol and then sold to other companies for profit.

Make sure you actually take part in the REAL crowd sale, set for Sep 11, 2017. Only send funds to the official approved wallet and make 100% that there is no hack going on by checking the Slack and Telegram channels.

    They will only be trusted if they issue a refund to all users who contributed. That is the only sound advice one can give them now.

      I don’t think they should issue the refund, they have said multiple times what the ICO address would be and when exactly the ICO would take place.

        Correct, people with major FOMO jumped the gun and lost a fair amount.
