Dogecoin Co-Creator Warns On Nothing Being 100% Safe In Crypto As SafeDollar Stablecoin Drops To $0


Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) co-creator Billy Markus referred to an attack on Polygon (CRYPTO: MATIC)-based stablecoin SafeDollar and said nothing is 100% safe while advising investors to exercise prudence.

What Happened: Markus’ comments were made on Twitter where he said the “ABC of crypto” implies “Always Be Careful.”

The Dogecoin co-creator said, “The crypto scene is full to the brim with BS. Nothing is 100% ‘safe,’ all values rely on other people’s money, and the actually engineering things is something that almost no one really understands.”

The supposed exploit could have been worth $250,000 and used USDC (CRYPTO: USDC) and Tether (CRYPTO: USDT) stablecoins, as per a tweet from DeFi analytics website Rugdoc.io.

SafeDollar traded at $0 at press time, according to the project’s website. DOGE traded 0.28% lower at $0.26, while MATIC traded 2.96% higher at $1.13 in the same time frame.

Why It Matters: As per SafeDollar’s Telegram channel, all activities have been paused and investigations are underway.

The channel said, “IMPORTANT: PLEASE STOP ALL TRADING RELATED TO $SDO.”

SafeDollar acknowledged another attack on it this month in a blog post. That exploit resulted in a loss of 9,959 SafeDollar. At that time, the protocol’s share tokens traded for almost $95,000.

“SafeDollar team will use $100,000 USDC and SDS from Dev fund to provide back 9,959.29 SDS for IDO buyers to claim their SDS,” as per the SafeDollar post.
