Roll abstracts the technical details of token creation and offers community owners a low-entry tokenization service. Coin minting, vesting and tokenomics of each coin are designed by each creator based on their preferred parameters. Many have compared the mechanism as a novel form of income-sharing arrangement (IS A).
Masmej, for example, distributed his personal tokens on the condition that some holders could enjoy them 15% of his income for participating in the token sale.
However, his token has crashed nearly 50% in the past 24 hours.
“As you may have seen that $ ALEX Token was hacked along with other social tokens, ”he said wrote on twitter. “I just woke up and our social token issuer is still investigating.”
Based on an on-chain analysis by researcher Igor Igamberdiev, this would be the case appear that an important hot wallet was compromised at Roll. “As a result, an attacker almost earned [$5.7 million],” They said.
With this compromised key wallet, the attacker was able to sell various personal tokens based on the roll infrastructure.
Igamberdiev also suggested that because of the attack’s anatomy, the attack might have been an “inside job”.
The roll team has yet to make an official announcement. Users have alerted this team to the attack and plan to make a statement by Monday.
