THE DARK SIDE OF CRYPTO and How We Beat it Yesterday
A message went out yesterday saying Skylabs is launching on PancakeSwap. And it was… Until the scamming snipers employed bots that compromised the Contract.
Yesterday was one of the most striking displays of the ‘dark side’ vs ‘light’ of combats we’ve ever seen.
We had a nasty Sith-like “competitor launchpad” hitting us hard with a DDoS attack to keep the site down. We fought back and our site stayed up, but they managed to slow it down.
We had more scammer attacks on our community than was seen before because of the scale of our launch.
By the way, don’t trust information you receive by email, or even what you find in the Telegram unless you CONFIRM it is in the PINNED post. And make sure the website URL is spelled correctly. Vetter.ai — Scammers are like flies to honey when it comes to big projects.
During yesterday’s battle we did manage to get quite a bit of BNB from snipers who were trying to steal from the community in a big way, and who were sending nasty threats to us personally while we were still in direct combat with them.
They were relentless, but we were committed.
It matters, because letting them have their way would have messed with the price of the token permanently.
They didn’t have their way and now we have a big chunk of their BNB that can be applied to a buy-back. More on all this soon. We’ll hold a LIVE chat update in the Skylabs telegram once the team get some rest and reassembles.
We’re very proud of this team, the moderators, and loyal community leaders who stepped up during the launch during the attack.
Taking a look at the staking packages you can see a lot is already locked up. At the time of writing the total value locked is already over 8000 BNB in staking… Look how many are already locked into the Zeus package!
Big shout-out to community Moderator Ryan who held some events during the launch and Sith-attacks to get more people up to speed on the staking packages.
Looking forward to Pancake and beyond! VSL goes LIVE on PancakeSwap at 4pm UTC on the 29th of August 2022.
We will continue to fight the dark side head on!
P.S. This launch will go down in history as a significant turning point in changing the culture of DeFi
