Dear Moguls,

BitMart has committed to a STARS repurchasing plan after suffering a security breach last week. Mogul has taken the last week to speak with BitMart and our key partners to establish a transparent path forward.

On December 4, cryptocurrency exchange BitMart experienced a security breach. The Mogul Productions team identified the breach early on (before BitMart) and acted quickly.

  • We worked with the AnySwap team to immediately pause the bridge from ERC20 <> BEP20, cornering the hacker and isolating the problem immediately.
  • Working with our partners, we created a comprehensive action plan to prevent loss and minimize the impact on our users.


Mogul Crisis Confidence Plan:

We are committed to supporting BitMart in the best interests of our users and to help where we can. We appreciate our community's patience, support, and discussion on this topic. Our highest priorities were to ensure our community members were compensated by BitMart and the longevity of STARS - the token that powers the Mogul ecosystem.

  • BitMart has committed to a $STARS repurchasing plan to compensate users
  • BitMart has told Mogul they are working with the FBI, top world security firms, and asset managers to make sure they minimize the impact and recover the funds that were stolen and other externalities caused by their security errors.
  • Mogul will work with AnySwap to reopen the ERC20 BEP20 bridge contract.

Read our Crisis Confidence Plan detailing the path forward.

We will be hosting a Telegram AMA on Monday, December 13th, at 12:30PM PT/3:30PM ET if you have any questions regarding this. Make sure to send in your questions and join our Telegram: https://t.me/mogulproductions

Regards,

The Mogul Productions Team
