Thousands of people were tricked and attackers made millions of dollars in profits. And on-chain data shows that new users are constantly being deceived. GoPlus reminds everyone to be cautious and not trust malicious addresses that can empty assets.
Flow is a fast, decentralized, and developer-friendly blockchain, built with the purpose of supporting the decentralized applications (DApps), games, and digital assets they run on. It is designed for scalability and faster speeds without resorting to fragmentation technology, which makes it ideal for crypto-based games and NFT collectibles.
With Flow’s unique proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism and multi-node architecture, we partnered with Deloitte Canada to validate how much energy the network uses.
