I have been hacked.
On January 15th the backup of some private keys was compromised, including the one used by DAO Committee. The hacker transferred all assets hold by such keys to another account and liquidated them in decentralized exchanges.
Fortunately, I didn’t hold DAO assets in that account and all the community treasuries were locked behind a multi-signature scheme.
I gived notice about the incident to the Security Advisory Board (SAB) and they proceed to replace my key from the DAO Committee by another member of the SAB until I review the situation and provide a new setup. Today I have been reinstated to the DAO Committee multi-sigs.
I feel bad about the lost and being pwnd in this way. In crypto, self-custodianship is a right but it came with these risks. I hope this serves as a reminder to everyone to review your setup and make sure it’s secure.
Regrets aside, I feel very grateful for the people I have around, my friends and family, this amazing project, and the incredible community we have at Decentraland <3
Let’s keep building,
