WARNING: Grin Website Takeover!

Welcome, welcome to One Minute Crypto! I’m your host, Chronos, and today, a huge
warning for Mimblewimble enthusiasts. A calamity has hit Grin’s official website:
it’s been completely taken over by a scammer, with little possibility of getting it back. The Grin community has been forced to move
to a new domain, at https://grin.mw, in order to keep the website running. In this video, we’ll dig into exactly what
went wrong. I want to thank our sponsor, Americas Cardroom,
the most trusted US online poker site. Fund your account and claim your winnings
using any of over 60 different cryptocurrencies, and double your first deposit, up to a thousand
dollars, as a new player. Check them out at Americascardroom.com. So the story starts when Grin’s anonymous
leader, Ignotus Peverell, stepped down from his role in the project last year. Unfortunately, he had sole control of the
domain registration for the official website. The domain is basically the address you type
in to get to the site. And Ignotus didn’t just step down… he flat-out
disappeared. Now, the way websites work is, you have to
occasionally renew the domain name, otherwise it eventually gets released back to the public. So when Ignotus disappeared, he failed
to hand over the reigns, and a scammer snatched it up as soon as it came available. So now, if you visit the old site, you get
something that looks a little like Grin, but it has a bunch of scammy links in the top
navigation. What’s worse, the old domain still comes up
on the first page of search results when you look for “Grin Cryptocurrency.” So if you want to learn more about Grin, be
sure to visit the new site, at https://grin.mw. I’m Chronos. Thanks for watching!
