EOS Go recently received the news that Cryptomania slots, a casino dapp that operated on the EOS mainnet, exited the project and withdrawn all the funds of its smart contracts, which amounted to over 15k+ EOS, to Huobi and Binance.
In the last two months CryptoMania users had dropped dramatically, with a daily volume that was always hovering around 0 EOS, matching the number of users. This was probably also one of the factors that led the team to prepare the exit.
Info from DappRadar
According to an admin from the CryptoMania telegram group, the jackpot account was drained by
babaganush1, an EOS account owned by CMjames of the Cryptomania team, and his partner
luckydan111 on January 15. All the 5k+ EOS that were in that account should have been distributed to players, but instead they were transferred to Huobi.
The slot machine account with over 10k EOS and another account with thousands of other EOS were both drained on the same day from the same accounts and transferred to Huobi and Binance.
EOS Go tried to track these on-chain transactions and was able to find withdrawals to
luckydan1111 for an amount greater than 7.5k.
At the moment the only solution to try to counter the withdrawals is to contact Huobi and Binance to block their accounts.
In any case we want to take this opportunity to remind the whole community to pay attention to any projects/token that might seem a scam. Beware of where you invest your money and your time!
The source provided us with more information regarding the amount of EOS withdrawn by the founders of Cryptomania.
Basically they had already started withdrawing dApp funds since EIDOS caused congestion problems on the mainnet.
Not taking into account the transactions we have already reported above, for a total amount of 7,652 EOS, the founders' accounts
babaganush1 carried out the following transactions:
So the total amount of EOS withdrawn from smart contracts that we were able to find amounts to 16,771 EOS, worth more than $55,000.
"He never even paid us months of wages that were owed and promised, while asking us to keep the community on ice, with what turned out to be lies (i would have never willingly lied to the community, which is why i blew the whistle). (...) James even asked me in PM if I could get $150k together from a loan and send it overseas LOL, for a "piece" of the pie, and manage the project, i declined..."
