Cardano Foundation’s communiqué on suspicious activities in Japan
We have recently received reports with regards to activities from someone claiming to be from, or are contracted by, BTCNEXT, a company registered in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean. The individuals claiming to be from BTCNEXT/contracted by BTCNEXT say they personally know the core members of Cardano and that investments with them were thus “safe”.
Neither the Cardano Foundation nor any of its ecosystem partners are in any way associated with BTCNEXT, and they are also not our partners of any sort.
Any claims otherwise are false and do not correspond with reality. Please beware of any suspicious claims and conduct thorough due diligence.
Thus, we strongly urge you not to send your ada to any third-party entities which claim to have partnerships with Cardano or officials from the entities within the Cardano ecosystem. We will never ask you to send your funds (assets) to us.
The Cardano Foundation takes any dissemination of scams, fraudulent information and FUD as a serious violation and breach of trust toward the community.
Please consult with our Cardano Ambassadors and the Community Management Team officials if you notice anything suspicious. Please also make sure you follow our official channels to ensure you always have our latest official information.
