It was not a ‘hacker’ who stole coins from the guy’s Metamask


This is regarding the recent post about the guy who lost some 130k worth of savings from his Metamask waller because some “hacker” took it. This seems to be creating a lot of FUD because it could happen to anyone, right?

Except there was no ‘hack’ that got someone into his wallet. He gave away his passphrase on a random site.

That’s like leaving your physical wallet at the bar and then saying a ‘pickpocket’ got it.

Not going to give an opinion on whether it actually happened or OP made the story up, but it was worded to make it look like he was the victim of a hack. Which is not the case.

This is just an obligatory FUD removal post.
