BigWhale.io investigation ongoing

Dear Investors,

SolidProof is fully aware of the incident involving BigWhale.io and is working closely with our partner Cyvers to assess the situation and take further steps.

We would also like to mention that the security audit for BigWhale.io was conducted by Certik, while the KYC process was carried out by SolidProof.

The developer wallet, which ends in 'd1c,' also had funds removed during the same time period. While we await a statement from the responsible auditors at Certik, we are already investigating the attack vector, which appears to be a possible private key leakage.

The SolidProof and Cyvers teams are collaborating and advising next steps. Further information will be released via updates to this blog post.

We want to emphasize our commitment to pursuing all available avenues and leveraging our resources and partnerships to explore a wide range of options to uncover the core of this incident. We will keep this post updated with any news regarding this incident.
