Erik Svenson, co-founder and CFO of Blockstream, a blockchain infrastructure company, said, “Investment in cryptocurrencies peaked in early last year. The Bitcoin space itself has always been an area of capital shortage. We decided long ago not to issue our own tokens. We did not conduct an ICO like many projects, so we have always relied on more traditional venture capital.” Blockstream raised $125 million at the end of January, bringing its total funding to about $400 million. As of August 2022, the company has a post-investment valuation of $2.49 billion.

Official announcement from PEPE: The sale of 16 trillion PEPE tokens yesterday was due to the theft of tokens by 3 former members who then deleted multisig permissions
PEPE published a long post on Twitter, revealing the truth behind the sale of 16 trillion PEPE tokens yesterday. PEPE stated that since its inception, the project has been plagued by internal conflicts, with most of the team members distancing themselves from the project after the first week of launch. These members have hindered the team’s progress in using multisig wallets for token donations or purchases due to the inability to sign, disagreements, and prolonged inability to contact them. Now the PEPE project has completely rid itself of this burden. Three former team members secretly returned yesterday, logged into the multisig and stole 60% of the tokens in the wallet, which were then sent to a trading platform for sale. They then removed themselves from the multisig to eliminate any association with PEPE, and also deleted all their social media accounts, leaving only one message: “The multisig has been updated, you now have full control”. Currently, the control of this Twitter account and the remaining 10 trillion tokens in the multisig wallet are secure, and the former team members no longer have access to them.
According to previous reports, the PEPE team’s multi-signature address transferred 160,000 trillion PEPE tokens (equivalent to $15.08 million) to four CEXs (centralized exchanges) yesterday. Among them, 85,000 trillion PEPE tokens (equivalent to $7.99 million) were transferred to OKX, 67,000 trillion PEPE tokens (equivalent to $6.29 million) were transferred to Binance, 44.51 billion PEPE tokens (equivalent to $410,000) were transferred to Bybit, and 40 billion PEPE tokens (equivalent to $370,000) were transferred to Kcoin.
The remaining over 10,000 trillion tokens in the PEPE multi-signature address have been transferred to a new address.
PEPE announced on Twitter that the remaining 10.6 trillion tokens in the PEPE multi-signature address have been transferred to a new address starting with 0x9f5E46.

He previously disclosed that the founder of PEPE is American landscape photographer Zachary Testa, who has a record of violating laws in multiple wilderness areas, sacred indigenous areas, and other areas where drones are prohibited. Zachary used the PEPE income to purchase a purple Lamborghini worth $865,000, but his team did not pay any copyright fees to Pepe the Frog’s original creator, Matt_Furie.
PEPE: Telegram group has been taken over by hackers, all official messages will be published through the X (Twitter) account.
PEPE tweeted that the PEPE Telegram group is currently locked, and the old Telegram account of the group owner has been hacked and taken over by hackers. During the process of attempting to regain access or create new access, all official communications from PEPE will be simultaneously published through the X (Twitter) account. Any mention of airdrops, staking, minting, claims, etc. is a scam. Pepe is not involved in any new coins, and Pepe will never message you first. Do not connect wallets or sign content without carefully checking all links and account usernames.

Some versions of WPS for Windows are suspected to have remote code execution vulnerabilities, and multiple users’ private keys have been stolen.
Several members of the encryption community have reported that their private keys have been stolen, with speculation that it may be due to the use of the Bitkey Fingerprint Browser. In response to this, the official Bitkey Fingerprint Browser community stated that some versions of WPS for Windows have remote code execution vulnerabilities, allowing attackers to execute arbitrary code on the victim’s target host and control the host. The affected versions include WPS Office 2023 Personal Edition below 220.127.116.1120 (inclusive) and WPS Office institutional versions (such as Professional Edition, Professional Enhanced Edition) below 18.104.22.16855 (inclusive). Moreover, this vulnerability is relatively easy to trigger, so it may be exploited by hackers after clicking on unknown links. Even if the private key does not exist in WPS, it can still be compromised when using other methods. In addition, there is also a risk of theft when granting authorization keys to third parties.
At the same time, there are also voices saying that there are users who have not used WPS among those who have been stolen from. LianGuaiNews will continue to track the specific reasons for the theft.
