@TheOnlyNom documents the drain<br />

which breached his Ledger.<br />


from<br />

the<br />

<strong>Issue</strong> <strong>67</strong> of #Shill zine. The issue that almost didn't make it.<br />

In case you missed it. TLDR My Solana wallet was drained on Friday night 29 July, 2022 (Australian time)<br />

resulting in around 630 Sol value of NFT and $Dust token.<br />

I plead mea culpa for not spreading my assets out across 20 wallets. That's my only mistake. I did not<br />

click on a suspicious link. I did not take part in a dodgy swap. I did not allow access to my wallet.<br />

Read the "Lost Monke" article in this issue to find out what happened.<br />

Now, can I just say that this Solana NFT community space is a great space. I moved from eth back in<br />

June 2021 and the vibe on this chain has always been fantastic. People I have never met in real life<br />

(IRL) on Twitter and in Spaces. I go about publishing #Shill zine each week hoping that it gives artists a<br />

chance to be seen. A platform that increases the amount of eyes that see their work. Every now and<br />

then I get a DM thanking me for including them. Makes it all worthwhile.<br />

What I did not expect is what @Keezerfeld has approached me with. I am flawed and deeply touched. I<br />

have never met Keezerfeld. Never spoken with him. Only corresponded via Twitter. His work has always<br />

been incredible, the reason why his pieces often feature in #Shill zine or on the #Shill cover.<br />

The current cover is @Keezerfeld's latest piece. It will be his first ever<br />

'editions' drop. Finally an affordable way to own a Keez piece! What's<br />

more is that Keez wants to help #Shill get back on its feet after the<br />

recent wallet drain. Purchasing an edition of Keez will help #Shill zine.<br />

"an affordable<br />

way to own a<br />

Keez piece!"<br />

Truly, I don't know what to say other than this man, from across the<br />

world whom I have never met is willing to donate back to #Shill zine. "I<br />

want to donate it to shill to do amazing stuff for the magazine and culture sir." Keez, I am deeply<br />

touched and appreciative of your offer.<br />

A special shoutout also to @LowBrowNative who DM'd me offering to help by giving everything she<br />

has. The most gentle soul on the Solana space always willing to help others over herself!<br />

That's why this issue is late.<br />

Let's see where this goes.<br />

As always, show your love on the Twittersphere with a<br />

simple retweet.<br />

Enough said. You know the drill. Let’s f go!<br />

@Pixeltoy<br />

Maybe devs could so something?<br />

Duppies Rebrands to y00ts<br />

Earlier today Degods announced on its twitter page that they were officially rebranding Duppies to<br />

y00ts. The news was confirmed as @DuppiesNFT changed its name on twitter to “Duppies (rebranded<br />

to y00ts)”. A thread outlining the project’s new identity and direction should soon be released, according<br />

to a tweet from the official Duppies page.<br />

Duppies (y00ts) is the second project in the Degods collection led by Frank Degods. The most hyped<br />

mint of the month has been postponed many times, and the new release date is currently scheduled<br />

sometime in the beginning of August.<br />

According to the official Degods account, the new project page, @y00tsNFT, which is currently private,<br />

will stay that way until Tuesday when applications for y00tlist will open. The public can get a sense of<br />

the new approach to art by visiting y00ts’ website, y00ts.com. According to the website, John Le, one of<br />

the premier 1/1 artists on Solana, will be overseeing the art direction for the project.<br />

Primates announce merch partnership with Trippin Ape Tribe<br />

Primates and Trippin Ape Tribe(TAT) have announced a collaboration. This comes after much speculation<br />

about the two joining forces, especially due to TAT’s takeover week.<br />

The collaboration will involve Primates creating TAT related merchandise and clothing for their first<br />

collection coming soon.<br />

Primates prides itself as a brand built on collaborations, and TAT is the latest to join the project. Some<br />

past announced collaborations include Solana Money Boys and Cets on Creck.<br />

More information about to release of the first collection is expected soon.<br />

Ded Monkes drop art upgrade<br />

TAT art.<br />

Ded Monkes released upgraded art today, the first step in their next phase of execution. Ded Monkes is<br />

a derugged project of 666 dead monkeys that has been holding a stable floor price of around 3 Sol for<br />

the last few months.<br />

Recently, they’ve begun reading at building something that makes rugging more difficult and holds projects<br />

accountable, but concrete details are still not revealed.<br />

The symbol, 【Ø】, has been going around everywhere, accompanied with a slash cutting through profile<br />

pictures. It is believed that Ded Monkes next step will involve other derugged projects, like Bears<br />

Reloaded, to create some form of platform to better the Solana NFT ecosystem.<br />

@JeffbitZA<br />

So, been seeing alot of $eth ‘influencers’ coming into the $sol space & touting their bluechips/best picks. 1stly<br />

welcome what took you so long? 2ndly was Ur first buy @okaybears & then u decided to actually dive in? Or<br />

what brought you? 3rd letsdiscuss the monke in the room.<br />

So some of u (+ som solboys) looking 4 engagement using @ShiLLin_ViLLianTM techniques,have gone as far as 2<br />

say likely slow rug, or not include it in bluechips lists.Alrighty0 I shall now simply put into words the omega bull<br />

tingling i have in DN. My personal peak yet,why?<br />

Whilst moar bluechip(s) have arrived such as @DeGodsNFT & as such monkes may not be at that peak from the<br />

OG run ( healthy for the space & natural), I am more bullish now than then, Ethfluencers Ur picks founders vibe<br />

in @MonkeDAO on the regular, on that note let’s begin.<br />

@MonkeDAO as a community & last bastion of daoness hope is the value. Any talk of slowrug stems from SMB,<br />

the form & function of MD,as a great founder in the space said “matches that of a top corporate” with the added<br />

bonus of monkevibes, inclusivity, friendship, alpha & oppurtuniT.<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>67</strong>

Why is @SolanaMBS a must include on a bluechip list? Has Provenence, helped shape,mold & inspire the $sol<br />

space. Survived FUD of epic proportions & always comes out stronger thru ideals of monke. Degen mints is unrivalled<br />

as a channel in any discord on planet earth.<br />

Monkeventures, WL, the network potential, meetups worldwide, amazing people like minded & not all excited<br />

about what the hell web3 can become. Reject humanity return to monke! On 2 the catalysts making DN tingle.<br />

Talks 4 MD to acquire SMB are in advanced stages, I can’t even describe the amazingness of that outcome, a<br />

triumph for web3, unleashing the beast that is MD Once it happens? Yup wen $monke? (It will be done right) &<br />

boom catalyst 2. What 3? 5k collection leaves wiggle room.<br />

Last but not least the monkes in MD that make it all of these things & much more,insanely there is far to many<br />

2 mention. So 2 name but a few @supersimon77(vibez) @KQwizzn(best TA biz) @NFTScreenshotah(best memer<br />

@TheBRawlers_<br />

Introducing TheBrawlers, a 2222 supply<br />

project at only 0.15 Solana. Launching Mid-<br />

August! TheBrawlers are a project focused on<br />

Education, Creating Opportunities, Assisting in<br />

the Growth of the NFT space and Longevity.<br />

Many projects rely purely on Secondary<br />

Volume and Initial mint sales to fund their<br />

project and given a month’s time begin to slow<br />

down with the constant fixed expenses they<br />

endure!<br />

Brawlers are owning and operating their<br />

own Recruitment Agency, an Agency which<br />

contains Alpha Callers, Moderators, Collab<br />

Managers to hire out to other Projects in the<br />

NFT space. We will expand our services into<br />

other Blockchains when possible!<br />

Brawlers will provide opportunities for its<br />

Holders to run and operate a Project if<br />

they wish to, by derugging projects and<br />

distributing funds to Employees, The New<br />

owner/s, and the community! With our Agency<br />

and Partnerships made, we can supply a<br />

derugged project instantly with Alpha Calls,<br />

Collabs, Staking, NiftyBOT and Moderators!<br />

Brawlers have already begun creating courses<br />

on educating Holders on how to become a<br />

fully qualified Moderator and Collab Manager,<br />

with other courses to come in the future and<br />

help holders land professional Web 3 jobs!<br />

We will also be developing our own<br />

Ecosystem using the token $BRAWL. Projects<br />

will be able to pay a monthly fee for us to<br />

create a Staking website for them and have<br />

access to our $BRAWL ecosystem. The utility<br />

of this token is for holders to be able to enter<br />

NFT Giveaway raffles via FamousFoxes. The<br />

more projects using our Ecosystem the more<br />

NFT raffles will be hosted for all Holders of<br />

projects to enter into. Further, projects within<br />

the Ecosystem will have discounts to our<br />

services and will be able to make partnerships<br />

easier.<br />

With our ability to become profitable and<br />

provide services to numerous projects we will<br />

in turn provide our Holders will the ability to<br />

find jobs, we will acquire some of the best WL<br />

spots and Free NFT’s from projects for our<br />

holders. Supplying the best Alpha Calls in the<br />

space and overall providing as much value to<br />

holders where we can!<br />

Shil.me in the Shill Zine?<br />

What's up with that?<br />

Shil.me is the first Linktree for NFTs focusing on meaningful interaction. We<br />

offer a lightweight, link-in-bio solution for people to display, verify and interact<br />

with their NFTs allowing for more sophistication than Twitter pfps.<br />

We wanted to move away from the 3D metaverse galleries on offer and build<br />

a 2D experience with significant advantages in customization and performance.<br />

Beyond offering a unique display interface, Shil can provide social engagement<br />

and wallet tracking to users for a broader web3 experience. On-Chain provenance<br />

can be displayed along with users’ recent activity… and soon users will be able<br />

to sell NFTs straight from our platform.<br />

It’s our hope that you’ll try out shil.me and display your work with us!<br />

Currently Shil has multi-chain support and is building out plenty of new features.<br />

BabyApesNFT<br />

Baby Apes started as a just simple collection of 5000 cute Apes but turned out to be one of the<br />

most loved projects in the whole ecosystem of Solana, unfortunately enough the first owner<br />

tried to rug and used the community wallet to fund a new project and used Baby Apes<br />

Connections to fulfill his plans, and after that Turtles tried to get over the project failing in the<br />

attempt because the team wasn’t big enough to deal with two projects at the time, and lastly<br />

leaving the project under new management.<br />

So, what is this new management doing? First, we gonna restructure everything that has been<br />

done for BabyApes, we don’t want to be a utility project but a community-driven project, as we<br />

see how the community overperforms repeatedly any utility at least in NFTS.<br />

This does not mean that we won’t work to bring utility to rewards holders, but sustainably so<br />

the community will be always engaged with our futures plans. Because we see Baby Apes as a<br />

brand, and we want to build towards that goal, to gain back that recognition.<br />

In the short term, we are restructuring the old staking system, that’s the reason we stopped the<br />

staking of BabyApes because it was only killing the coin and it was completely unsustainable.<br />

The new staking system will play along with the coming [Jungle Plots] which also going to play<br />

a huge part in the building of the Bapeverse. Mint funds will be used solely purpose of making<br />

Babyapes + Bapeverse a world brand.<br />

There will doubters and that’s okay, we are here for the long term, and we won’t quit until everything<br />

is fulfilled within our expectations. This is just a new beginning for the Baby Apes.<br />

Collaborations, Auctions, Raffles, Staking, and much more. There’s more going on behind the<br />

scenes than you can see.<br />

Don’t fade the Bapeverse, Don’t fade BabyApes, Don’t fade the community.<br />

SolPatrolNFT<br />

Quick thread on Sol Patrol and the accomplishments we’ve made since minting out on x-mas eve. The project<br />

was started as an experiment, to create a quant DAO but to do it differently than a traditional quant firm. The<br />

idea was simply to crowd-source the “thinking”<br />

The community would work together to create models and theories – while the dev-team would focus on building.<br />

The first set of tools, we would build and then we would allow the community to add features and help us<br />

build the future.<br />

[Over the past few months, we have been working on Patrol Report, that allows direct minting from our site and<br />

allows users to see the communities that are minting the NFT live during the mint.<br />

If you recall the launch of Boryoku Dragonz, it was a lot of insider information that caused certain liquid communities<br />

to mint and market the collection - causing a 200x in a very short period.<br />

If you can see the on-chain data of the communities minting this NFT, then you can make more educated predictions.<br />

The beta for Patrol Report has been launched but is currently under maintenance, as we are wrapping up a<br />

few items on the back end.<br />

You can view a walk-through of Patrol Report on the old UI:<br />

SolPatrol @SolPatrolNFT<br />

The Patrol Report is officially launched in BETA<br />

No more WL hunting<br />

No more insider trading<br />

No more searching for ‘alpha’<br />

Direct minting from Patrol Report coming in the next 48-hrs and check out the explainer video below! $BAIL $SOL<br />

#NFT #SOLNFT @SolPatrolNFT<br />

We also had a big focus on the gamification in Sol Patrol. In January we launched one of the first raffles on Solana,<br />

called the Jail. We used 100% of royalties to buy NFTs from the secondary and placed them in the Jail vault.<br />

Then users were able to release the NFT to their wallet by “posting-BAIL.” We were also able to integrate and test<br />

SolanaPay with this game. The Jail was very important because we burned all the BAIL that was collected in the<br />

Jail.<br />

We recently calculated an approx. amount of BAIL that we burned, and it was 70% of the total circulating supply.<br />

This, combined with a very low emission at the launch of Staking 1.0, we had created a very healthy and sustainable<br />

tokenomics structure for BAIL.<br />

After we released staking and the Jail, we immediately got many requests to do some work for other projects.<br />

Since we only did a 0.15 SOL mint and all royalties were given back to the community, we took these opportunities<br />

to build a larger dev-team.<br />

@SecretSphinxes https://twitter.com/SecretSphinxes<br />

This article will highlight and discuss the newest venture that the Society will be undergoing in Q3-Q4 2022: The<br />

Menagerie!<br />

MENAGERIE: a place where animals are kept and trained especially for exhibition; a collection of wild or foreign<br />

animals kept…<br />

www.merriam-webster.com<br />

Let’s break it down into three distinct sections for easier digesting:<br />

1. What is the Menagerie?<br />

2. What is our vision for this platform?<br />

3. What will the process look like?<br />

What is the Menagerie?<br />

In short, the Menagerie will be a platform for hosting, displaying, and distributing artwork from 1/1 artists to<br />

holders of the three Secret Sphinx Society collections and eventually those from outside our community. We’ll<br />

commission exclusive pieces and editions from prominent and upcoming artists in the 1/1 space to create a curated<br />

selection of artwork that our holders can purchase with our native tokens, Ankh and Scarab. These pieces<br />

will be purchasable in multiple methods, including minting editions, auctions for singular pieces, and more exclusive<br />

raffles for custom commissioned work.<br />

This platform will be the centerpiece of utility for our Oasis collection, allowing holders of the 200-piece landscapes<br />

to bid on special pieces, claim free editions of major collections, and receive access to holder-gated<br />

content. In the same vein, Sphinx and Pharaoh holders will be able to access all content but won’t receive the full<br />

slate of benefits available to our Oasis holders.<br />

Planned site functionality will include:<br />

• Minting 1/1 art directly to your wallet<br />

• Able to bid on pieces with Ankh and Scarab<br />

• Able to purchase/bid on auctions in Sol (for very special drops)<br />

Additional features that may be included are:<br />

• Able to list items for secondary sale<br />

• Able to tip creators directly without a purchase<br />

54<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>67</strong>

What is our vision for this platform?<br />

The inception of this project stems from the recent boom in the activity of 1/1 art sales on the Solana blockchain,<br />

the popularity of editions among collectors of top creators, and the recent issues around botting that we’ve seen<br />

on 1/1 art platforms. See also my latest Thoughts from the Tomb for an insight into the creative inspiration of this<br />

venture, linked below.<br />

Thoughts from the Tomb<br />

Art and the Human Experience. The thought process behind the Menagerie, and an exposé on artistic expression.<br />

Here’s a more direct, two-fold mission statement for the Menagerie:<br />

1. To increase the collectability and accessibility of 1/1 artwork to smaller-sized wallets and a larger collector<br />

base<br />

2. To give greater visibility to up-and-coming 1/1 artists while providing adequate compensation and the<br />

web3 tools they need to grow their personal brand<br />

We want the Menagerie to eventually feel like a personalized, curated space for artists and art collectors to find<br />

community where it may have been more difficult to connect them beforehand! The overarching goal of this<br />

project would be to serve as an online marketplace more closely aligning with an art gallery, where we work<br />

closely with an artist to create an “exhibit” feel for their pieces with an expansive bank of tools to disperse and<br />

sell their art however they wish to do so.<br />

What will the process look like?<br />

This venture into creating an online marketplace is not a light task, and will most likely take the better part of the<br />

next few months to complete all the stages that have been listed above. I’ll give a rough timeline below, but the<br />

order of how we’re building the Menagerie will follow this outline:<br />

Q3 2022 — August-September<br />

Complete current website overhaul and build out underlying infra for Menagerie website<br />

Q3 2022 — September-October<br />

Roll out token-gated marketplace to begin minting editions to holders in tokens<br />

Q4 2022 — October-December<br />

Further development of all art distribution methods, secondary listing features, and Exhibits curation begins<br />

Most of you are aware of how we at the Society build our infrastructure, but I’ll just offer a small reminder: it’s a<br />

slower process here, and we’re giving ourselves plenty of room to add in features that we find exciting, remove<br />

things that may no longer suit our vision, or pivot as dictated by the macro-conditions and current meta. The<br />

vision of the Menagerie was conceptualized by a meeting of the team at NFT NYC in June, and so we’re not just<br />

doing this because it’s a hot topic + flashy in the current meta. It’s a product and a platform that we feel aligns<br />

with our IP in a distinct manner, and we’re extremely excited to continue our thematic storytelling while also<br />

providing something to our holders with asymmetric intrinsic and collectible value. If you have any questions,<br />

comments, or concerns, feel free to reach out on Twitter or in Discord, and as always…<br />

We keep building.<br />

@ForkedKirk<br />

Today is the day we add the most important @solana primitive for any community...<br />

@Realms_DAOs is now directly integrated on http://grape.art what does this mean, and why?<br />

There is more to NFT collections than just JPEGs, and many of us want to participate, grow, learn, and shape the<br />

future of those communities and the ecosystem...<br />

@Realms_DAOs governance tools enable this decision making for any NFT and Tokenized community in a democratic<br />

way.<br />

So it would be only natural that we would include governance for any community that already has it, because<br />

this provides a layer of transparency of the decision making in those DAOs like @BearsReloaded @MonkeDAO @<br />

DegenTrashPanda and more...<br />

56<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>67</strong>

And why not also see the members of those communities? and if you are a participant... maybe message them<br />

directly using @saydialect<br />

but what about tokenized communities? what if... like an NFT community you can discover Tokenized communities<br />

with governance like @mangomarkets and also quickly and easily see their respective DAO governance<br />

https://grape.art/collection/mango…<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>67</strong><br />


And there is so much more to do, but there isn’t a better place to do this than @solana with all the extraordinary<br />

LitecoinYagami<br />

A tech company is releasing an NFT on Solana that could change the game forever. Here’s why @rakkudos by @<br />

shakudo_io is your next bluechip opportunity.<br />

This article will cover:<br />

What is Shakudo? Reason(s) Behind the NFT<br />

The Art Utility New Standards<br />

Shakudo is a technology company with a simplified approach to data. Their product is growing rapidly, becoming<br />

a staple for teams in the industry. They offer: Decentralization, Cloud Flexibility, Nodes, and more. Since April<br />

2021, they have raised $4 million in VC funding.<br />

60<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>67</strong>

In terms of their product, their motivation is to “make life easier”. The point is to put an end to the meaningless<br />

complexity of data applications. Instead of using multiple products to build apps, Shakudo provides users with a<br />

cost-effective, competitive, all-in-one solution.<br />

Shakudo supporting decentralization is a big deal. Rather than turn a blind-eye to emerging tech, Shakudo embraces<br />

the future, giving builders a choice. This give them a MASSIVE edge... especially since their services are<br />

cheaper and more efficient than their competitors.<br />

I know what you’re thinking: “Why an NFT?” From the website: “Rakkudos, will act as a catalyst for the growth of<br />

the Shakudo Platform.” This growth entails scaling the developer team and the Shakudo platform itself. But the<br />

real innovation here is in the marketing.<br />

Shakudo wants to motivate holders to act as ambassadors of their company. When holders eventually rep the<br />

Rakkudos NFT on Twitter, they will essentially be marketing for Shakudo. This is a win-win... which could inspire<br />

their competitors to sit up and (possibly) adapt.<br />

This brings us to the art itself. I think it’s PFP worthy. As you may know, there is a science to making NFT art stand<br />

out. A few aspects include: - Bright Colors - Thick Lines - Character (Facial expressions, clothing, etc.) Rakkudos<br />

checks a lot of these boxes.<br />

<strong>SHILL</strong> <strong>Issue</strong> #<strong>67</strong><br />


Rakkudos has 3 main utilities:<br />

• Discounts/special offers for Shakudo.<br />

• PAID Referrals for new customers.<br />

• Staking -> $KUDOS (utility token).<br />

Since Shakudo is a multi-chain platform, the possibilities are limitless for builders, ambassadors and the company<br />

itself.<br />

We’ve seen many projects that want to reward their holders for marketing their brand on social media. Real<br />

world, business utility is a concept I can always get behind. Shakudo is pushing the envelope, as well as their<br />

brand within Web3. Everyone should be watching.<br />

TL;DR Shakudo is already a profitable, working product with VC funding. The high-demand Rakkudo mint is the<br />

on top. If the project scales the way it intends to scale, this could set a new standard for data/tech companies<br />

EVERYWHERE... revolutionizing the way they operate.<br />

Rescuing a Lost Monke: Post-mortem on getting a wallet drained and losing my PFP.<br />

First off this thread is not a call for donations. I have funds to recover what is lost and while I appreciate<br />

the love, your money would be better served helping other people!<br />

Secondly: This thread is not a condemnation of any teams or parties involved. Shit happens, I signed<br />

a transaction, we’re dealing with the aftermath. Please read through this, and keep your pitchforks<br />

stowed. It’s tokens and Jpegs, we will make it work<br />

jeopardize them and their work. I appreciate them for their response<br />

Main Security <strong>Issue</strong>s: Signing a simulated transaction - Didn't match final execution Staking multiple<br />

NFTs on a wallet with other valuables - Unnecessary Risk Comfort - The Main problem I have spent 4.5<br />

years without a major hack or loss. I got lazy and sloppy, That’s the issue<br />

I spent the day traveling to Solana to organize events. Got to my Hotel, connected through a VPN,<br />

caught up on messages, and went to perform a couple actions with my previously secured wallets.<br />

I attempted to sign a transaction which failed. I then signed a second transaction which included the<br />

method “signAllTransactions”, which you can read below https://docs.phantom.app/integrating/deeplinks-ios-and-android/provider-methods/signalltransactions…<br />

| In this signAll, included SetAuthority<br />

transactions for every account in my wallet<br />

For anyone unfamiliar, what this essentially does is transfer the ownership of a specific token or NFT<br />

from myself “4ZjY”, to a different wallet “Good” This doesn't move the NFT, but is like giving someone<br />

your car keys and registration.<br />

This instruction is explicitly warned about in Solana documentation, and is usually not present in staking<br />

platforms. It's potentially very harmful, especially when not understood by the end user. In this case, I<br />

made a mistake to sign this transaction.<br />

This transaction or series of transactions attempted this for every single NFT and token account inside<br />

of 4ZjY, causing some successful transactions, and some failures. Why failures? Some of these update<br />

calls were to staked NFT (in this case Famous Foxes)<br />

When the transaction attempted to update a staked NFT, it received a failure and moved onto the next<br />

Why did these transactions go through automatically and not require ledger approval? At this point I’m<br />

not sure.<br />

I noticed this shortly after other wallet activities, and looked into it. I contacted several developers and<br />

reached out directly to the team that I had staked with, assuming the most recent transactions would be<br />

80<br />

the ones most likely to have an issue like this.<br />

At this point, the investigation is still ongoing, and there are many minds I respect looking into this. I will<br />

continue to update as I know more<br />

The losses are about ~500 Sol, a significant chunk of what I have on Solana. It includes various ecosystem<br />

tokens, some 1/1 art pieces, as well as NFTs such as my SMB, a Gomu, CWM, Solstead, and<br />

others. At this time I can recover some of these and am thankful to all watching them<br />

A TLDR: I was a tired Monke, using technology I was comfortable with. I should not have accessed a<br />

staking contract with the same wallet that holds other things I value. A ledger can only do so much Protect<br />

yourself and your assets.<br />

@Pixeltoy<br />

Like Nom, I am not calling for donations etc etc. What happened, happened. The world moves on. We<br />

pick ourselves up and re-evalute where we are heading.<br />

On Friday 29 July 2022 this exact drainer code hit my wallet. The loss to my account was around<br />

630Sol floor price.<br />

As per @TheOnlyNom, I casually approved a transaction that I normally do on a staking site I regularly<br />

used.<br />

From what some 'super sleuths' can deduct from tracking this event, the hacker had planted the<br />

code weeks earlier allowing them to scan wallets and choose WHAT they wanted to take. This was a<br />

pre-meditated, planned execution. Whatever was in the targeted wallet was transferred to a chain of 6<br />

wallets. Put for sale on secondary within moments and sold for floor price or under floor price.<br />

The only way that any NFT could have been recuperated would have been to quickly act and reach out<br />

to the projects that issued the NFT. Fortunately for me, Xin Dragons acted quickly and imposed a 98%<br />

fee on the 3 dragons that I lost. They sold on secondary for 31 Sol each- the hacker only received 2%<br />

from the sale. The Xin Dragons team have returned my dragons to a brand-new wallet.<br />

My 2 Monke and 1 Thugbird met with a different end. Like @theonlynom, my Monke sold on secondary<br />

as did my Thugbird for absolute bargain basement prices. My 1st Monke that I have had since pre-mint<br />

sold for 200Sol. My 2nd Monke was up for 230Sol and someone bid 150Sol for it. The hacker let it go<br />

for that price. My Thug was up for 9Sol and he let it go for 7Sol.<br />

I also lost $Dust, 4300. At around $1.30/$Dust. Gone.<br />

With the return of my dragons, the Xin Dragons team saved me 90Sol bringing my loss down to around<br />

540Sol.<br />

Unlike @TheOnlyNom I cannot just buy back what I lost. We are talking over $20k usd. I don’t have<br />

that lying around.<br />
