HashDit is an industry-leading blockchain security company that focuses on building a safe ecosystem for both protocol users and smart contract developers on BNB Chain. HashDit is member of AvengerDAO. HashDit’s analysis shows that there were 11 security incidents that happened in the week of September 12th.
In the past week, we have seen 2 cases of Hot Wallets getting compromised, namely the @Stake and @CoinEx incidents. This is a growing security trend as scammers are utilizing more complex social engineering methods which have proven to be successful against corporations.
As such, in general, we recommend self-custody and ensuring funds are kept in a decentralized wallet, like using TrustWallet.
This ensures that as long as you maintain proper security measures and wallet hygiene, your funds will always be safe.
