In response to this misinformation, 0x developers have issued a warning to users and integrators to be aware of this phishing scam. They clarified that the scam thread uses screenshots from a SushiSwap exploit that took place in April, hence distorting the narrative.

The developers strongly advise against clicking on the links provided in the scam thread, emphasizing that the fake site is posing as RevokeCash. 0x reiterated that their smart contracts are functioning as intended and have not been compromised, dispelling the scam’s claims.

Importantly, the price of 0x has remained stable, indicating that the market has not been swayed by the unfounded rumors. However, this event is a sobering reminder to the crypto community to stay vigilant. Scammers often exploit the fear and uncertainty that can occur in decentralized finance, creating situations that pressure users into taking action that compromises their assets.

Investors and traders are advised to verify any information they receive, particularly those suggesting security breaches. Most importantly, users should only use trusted sources when connecting their wallets or revoking transaction allowances.
