"Celebrating Asian Culture by empowering Asian Creators. Join the movement!"


"Fortune Friends Club’s Discord was hacked yesterday, leading followers to believe that minting was already live. Many eager fans were scammed into ‘minting’ Baos in the fake website and lost their ETH immediately. The team quickly took measures to secure the channel again and provided a full debrief of the mishap. They also promised to compensate all the victims by returning the ETH lost or a Bao NFT when it drops."


"The whole incident began when the team was tricked by someone posing to be from Wonderpals, a project they were excited to work with. Once they keyed in the code, the hackers were able to bypass their 2FA. They used some time to study the channel and the team’s active hours. During midnight, they created a webhook spidey bot, allowing them to remove channels, override permissions, and update team roles.


While executing the heist, they were actively on the lookout for Discord members that spoke up about a possible hack happening. In less than an hour, they scheduled an event that said “Minting is now Live”. Following this, some members entered into the fake website and started to ‘mint’, sending ETH directly to the scammer’s address. The team took some time to secure their channel again, and is working hard to prevent future occurrences."


"You guys are the best. Although today was tough, I couldnt be in a better community run by people who really care. Again, thank you for being so responsive to the situation I have full faith this will be resolved."
