Dear NULS community:

We detected that an account of the NULS team was attacked by hackers. Unfortunately, 2,000,000NULS were transferred, among which 548354.34696095NULS has entered the trading market and couldn’t be traced.

Please note that we have decided to conduct a hard fork process at the height of 87800. After the hard fork, the remaining 1451645.65303905NULS that has not entered the trading market will be destroyed in a permanent freeze to prevent continued flow into the market and bring losses to community members.

The reason for this attack is due to a security vulnerability in NULS 2.2 version, which has been fixed. We have contacted the exchanges and they are cooperating with us actively. We are completing the hard fork process and will release it as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.

We will provide more details once the investigation is complete.

This upgrade is mandatory. Node owners, please upgrade your node to the latest version ASAP to avoid receiving unnecessary yellow cards.

NULS team
