3 – DeFi Warrior Announces eSports Tournaments
There’s little doubt that eSports is surging in popularity. Millions of fans watch tournaments on streaming sites or in-person, and plenty of gamers hope to go pro and win a share of prize pools that reach millions of dollars. Now DeFi Warrior, with the support of Bountie Hunter, is entering the eSports space.
DeFi Warrior announced ten upcoming eSports tournaments. Moreover, the prize pool for the combined tournaments is 460,000 FIWA tokens and 135 NFTs. The tournaments begin this month, with two of them named Legends and Battleground.
4 – Illuvium Suffers Security Flaw
Attackers stole some funds from Illuvium due to a security flaw. The blockchain game warned players not to buy into the $sILV pool, which was targeted by the attacker. Not all of the funds in the pool were stolen as the game was able to do a swap of their own.
Furthermore, the project will begin reimbursing players who lost funds after getting a snapshot of the actual ownership of $sILV. Illuvium plans on doing everything possible to ensure players do not lose any funds over the attack. The game will continue to investigate and will post updates.
Also, the game says scammers are pretending to be the official game’s support account on Twitter. The project reminded players to never give out their seed phrases or passwords, as well as to not click on any suspicious links.
