The news is pretty recent, my personal opinion would be to get out before everyone notices. Cryptocurrency is unpredictable though so take what I say with a grain of salt.

>> No.4233338

It's ethereum.
The problem is a shitty multi-sig wallet coded by the co-founder of Ethereum. Solidity is a shitty language and Ethereum is a mess.

>> No.4233340

I was wrong about the ICO.
I looked into it a bit more, Parity fucked up their code with their eth wallets. 280M locked up.
All multisig wallets made since July relied on the library contract, the library contract was killed about 20 hours ago and now none of those wallets work.

>> No.4233357

why on earth is anyone using a wallet that had a problem already like 4 month ago?

>> No.4233364

Is Ethereum-based crpytos like SALT going to be affected?

>> No.4233370

No, it's like if an iOS app fucks you in the ass and locks you out of your bank account.

iOS isn't to blame, the app is.
ETH isn't to blame, Parity's shit coders are.

This won't stop FUDing I think. Eh, discount ETH is likely on the horizon.

>> No.4233372

The fact that you even have to ask it here tells me you don't have a special multisig wallet in Parity and thus are not affected.
Not a problem with Ethereum, but a problem with Parity's code.
1% of ETH might be locked up for an unknown amount of time, which does make uninformed people worried, but then again it is deflation of total supply for a while.

Nigga it is actualy unsafe. I had to sell uncomfortably low just now to ensure I will have any money left at all.

multi-sig affected ETH can lock up OTHER ETH via smart contract connection. You know what this means right? We HAVE to have a hard fork otherwise hackers will smart contract lock every ETH.

>> No.4233830

This. Nothing is safe!!!!

>> No.4233845

if you have that much ETH, I'd start selling before the Whales drop it 25%.
you probably bought it low , so consider today a "profit"

>> No.4233847

So this will decrease ETH supply for a bit, ETH can just bounce back up and be at a higher price no?

>> No.4233884

To fix the bug there needs to be a hardfork.

This potentially mean all ERC20 tokens are fucked and also means the price of ETH will plummet.

How does this even happens, is it a vulnerability that this guy accidentally triggered or anyone can just call kill() and create a massive value collapse

>> No.4234394

Can they just roll it back or something?
There has to be a way to recover it

>> No.4234420

Basically, from taking a look at the way the contract was written, anybody was allowed to call initWallet, which should only be able to be called once. The safety mechanism that was supposed to stop it from being called multiple times, only_uninitialized, was never enabled in the contract. By calling initWallet, a random person was able to make themselves the owner of the contract, and then subsequently kill the contract

>> No.4234426

Why lol. I think as long as his eth is not on any ico related scam he should be safe.

>> No.4234431

HODL them. It will bounce hard before reaching 0.03. You are a rich man.

>> No.4234435

The contract can be reinstated, but not without a hard fork. There's about zero chance they'll hard fork just because of this, and so what's likely to happen is that the funds stay frozen until Constantinople

>> No.4234489

They can with a hardfork. But for under 1% of ETH lost and not because of Ethereum developers' fault, there is not pressure on Vitalik to do anything. He can just chill and laugh at stupid people keeping their ETH on a shady wallet.
Small chance they will roll out a fix during the next planned update, but again, not necessary and thus they won't.

This is exactly why ETH will be slightly inflationary after PoS: ETH burned through bad contracts. The inflation counteracts the supply that is burned and the net coin amount will stay about the same. This is the best state for a currency to be in (no net deflation/inflation). Otherwise commodities would have to be constantly repriced if the total coin amount in circulation changes during the years too much.

>> No.4234496

Would it be able to, instead of kill the contract transfer all the funds to another account?

>> No.4234538

Unsure. It shouldn't have been possible, but then again it also shouldn't have been possible for any random person to make themselves the contract owner.

How do you feel if you are one of those people? What if you saved up and bought $10,000 of Ethereum for $310 and stored them in your Parity wallet and just wanted to save it to up in price, and then you just lost it all today?


>> No.4234622

bad but it's still not an etherium issue. also if etherium collapses it takes the whole market with it.

>> No.4234651

Why do most ico take ETH instead of BTC ?

>> No.4234683

Most ICO's exist as ERC20 tokens, it's easier for them to take ETH with a smart contract which automatically distributes the tokens

>> No.4234684

damn dude....

PLEASE atleast tell me you didn't put ALL your funds in Trezor

>> No.4234728


I bought a Trezor, and it arrived a while ago, and I've opened it up and tried setting it up, but it was too damn difficult, so I said "I'll do it later", and kept procastinating.

THANK FUCK I DID hly shit now my funds are safe, whereas my mates who put it into Trezor can't access their coins, the wallet is locked out

This only affects parity multi-sig wallets created since 20th July. If you don't know what this means, you're probably fine.

>> No.4235084

Stop FUDding lol, both Trezor and Ledger are fine

This only affects a specific type of smart-contract called a multisig wallet (it has an array of owners, and a majority of owners need to sign off on transactions involving the funds in the wallet)

This doesn't affect 99% of people, but it definitely affects some ICOs e.g. Polkadot
