“As we work hard to build the future of data and crypto trading and investing, we want to take a few moments to talk about safety. Due to our strong growth, our community has become a target. The worst elements of the crypto scene—scammers and phishers—are attracted to good projects and good communities.” – said by Enigma blog post.
The attacker also gained access to the company’s mailing list and sent out emails to some of Enigma’s mailing list subscribers. A copy of this email is available below.
