You are probably aware of what happened with Zircon Finance on Moonriver.
I have been personally affected by this hack and have lost a significant amount of money. I would like to explain why I decided to use this platform in the first place. When I saw Moonbeam’s Twitter promoting Zircon and awarding a Moonriver grant of 15K $MOVR, I became very interested in this project. I have been a follower of Moonbeam since the beginning, having participated in the crowdloan on Kusama and the Take Flight event. In short, I am one of your early supporters.
However, it appears that the code of this project was vulnerable, and anyone with a little knowledge of development could have exploited it. I am trying to understand how and why you had trusted them, and why you promoted them multiple times.
I do not blame you for what happened, as I take full responsibility for my actions. However, I would like to point out that your support for Zircon influenced my decision to use their products. It is important that this does not happen again in the future. That is why I am writing this message, to encourage you to question your actions and support for certain projects without conducting proper research.
Furthermore, it appears that Zircon was audited by Chain Troopers, who claim to be collaborators of Moonbeam and Moonriver. However, I believe their audits may not be reliable.
According to my research, approximately 6450 $MOVR tokens were drained by the hacker. I do not even know if it is possible, but my despair still prompts me to ask the question: can the foundation or the treasury consider helping its early supporters like me?
It can be a way to show that we are a solid and united community.
This hack has had a significant impact on me, and I believed that everything was secure due to the fact that Zircon was supported by Moonbeam. I hope that we can prevent this from happening again and protect other early supporters from experiencing the same loss.
Thank you for your attention.
