Social Tokens Crash After a Reported Hack at Roll Wallet
A number of social tokens, or cryptocurrencies supporting online communities, tanked early Sunday after a reported security breach at Roll.
Tokens like WHALE, RARE and PICA tanked more than 50% during the early European hours, according to data provider CoinGecko. Meanwhile, the RLY token of competing social money platform Rally spiked to all-time highs.
The founder of WHALE, a social coin underpinned by a basket of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), confirmed the hack on Twitter, stating that 2.17% of the coin’s supply has been compromised and the rest is secure in the cold storage.
Roll facilitates the sending and receiving of social money from Ethereum blockchain and within the Roll network.
According to MyCrypto.com, the malicious entity that executed the Roll hack is now sending 100s of ether (ETH, -2.51%) to Tornado Cash, an Ethereum-based privacy tool used by hackers to cover tracks and withdrawn funds.

Uniswap V3 Introduces New License to Spoil Future SUSHIs
Uniswap has licensed the third iteration of its code bank in an apparent move to ward off would-be copycats. The white paper for v3 of the decentralized exchange (DEX) was released Tuesday. In a possible nod to rival project SushiSwap – which copied Hayden Adams’ creation bit by bit – the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based team’s blog post included one section detailing a “business source license” that acts as a time delay for commercial use of the code “for up to two years.” After that point, the code will remain in an open-source GPL license “into…03/23/2021
