26 million EOS moved by PlusToken

Yesterday there was a huge transaction of 26 million EOS, over $60 million, from the PlusToken account to a new one created just minutes before the transfer.

The accounts involved are eospstotoken and jnhgvbkkfdjf.

This is a record-breaking scam because, in total, this scheme has involved the stealing of between 2 and 3 billion dollars from unsuspecting victims, a truly frightening figure.

Interestingly, after this transaction, several users were able to use the EOS blockchain to connect and communicate what had happened.

Indeed, the transaction sent a clear signal about how this scam was brought into the spotlight, which immediately initiated the conversation about what had happened.

Through the transaction memo field, it was possible to send direct messages and start a proper discussion while also providing useful details to other users as these messages cannot be deleted.

One of the advantages of public blockchains is that it is possible to track and trace all the movements and transactions that a user makes, allowing to retrieve useful information such as how the account was created, how it is connected with other accounts, the destination of funds and the platform where to exchange cryptocurrencies. 

The ultimate goal is to prevent these funds from being liquidated. In this regard, it is worth noting that the EOS blockchain has a blacklist that allows blocking an account so that it cannot perform any operation.

Unfortunately, there is little to do in these cases and it is necessary to intervene soon in order to cut any bridge that can facilitate the liquidation of the crypto assets on the relevant account, partly because in this way it is easier to deal with the situation if there is also coordination from the various exchanges and DEXs.
