How did your week go?
For this week’s news, we have – a fake Uniswap app, ETH 2.0 surpasses its target, and OKEx wants to make up for tough times!
We hope your week went well!
Beware of Fake Unicorns
A fake mobile application claiming to be the Uniswap exchange has reportedly stolen $20,000 from an investor.
The user reportedly entered in their private key backup phrase while under the impression that they were accessing the Uniswap decentralized exchange.
The application known as “Uniswap DEX,” was published two weeks ago by an entity called ‘Uniswap Inc.’, and has since been downloaded by over a 100 people.
ETH 2.0 Ready to Go
The proof-of-stake blockchain needed at least 16,384 validators to stake a combined 524,288 Ether (ETH) by November 24 to launch.
After sitting at about 50% of that target, the network blew past it within 24 hours.
ETH 2.0 has been in the works for a long time in order to scale Ethereum to speedily handle more transactions at a time.
OKEx Wants To Kiss and Make Up
After a five-week long withdrawal freeze, OKEx is planning to resume withdrawals for its users before November 27.
To prevent its users from taking their liquidity somewhere else, OKEx is offering a compensation plan to make up for the inconvenience.
20% of their total income from transaction fees over the last seven weeks will be used to make up to the ones who have suffered from this whole episode.
