As a victim I’m necessarily biased but so you are as a non-victim so I’ll try to answer as neutral as possible. I understand your point of view but I have some words to say as well concerning your points :
1/ The “surprise” airdrop concept is valid on a short time period. This time the malicious messages were posted many times on a long time period so it wasn’t looking at all as a surprise airdrop. I didn’t get scammed at the first message, I clicked because this was persistent.
2/ You are right, we’re all responsible for our own actions. In 7 years in crypto I never got hacked and even if it happens to me this time I still think the same way of you. But I also think it’s nice to support affected DAO members as soon as they are the DAO themselves.
The false Scott started spam on the end of the hack when he mentioned the “95% airdrop was claimed” not at the beginning. The hack was very more obvious when they saw victims were less easy to catch.
We don’t have necessarily the time to chat on channels each time an announcement is made.
CityDAO posted on X and only on X but how to find the information when you follow thousands of account ? There was only one post. They should have reach out in DM directly to max the chance of handling the situation. Especially members that got their X and Discord linked or at least make dozens of tweet about it.
Metamask is flagging many transactions nowadays, you got this flag as well when you borrowing against an asset. So it’s not catchy anymore especially when you are active on-chain
3/ it’s possible to control this easily case by case not gonna lie
I agree with this proposal because many victims are community members for a while now (Im here from the beginning) and they deserve some support imho in this nightmare. Moreover, 50k is less than 1% of our treasury so it shouldn’t impact future plans.
1/ I think we shouldn’t compare this hack to the first one. It was way longer than before. However, if we turn turn the problem to the opposite and if victims should have been warned and have learn from the first hack, what about admins ? It sounds like people managing the DAO didn’t make any mistakes by getting hacked -again- and it’s the victim fault entirely.
2/ Hacks are everywhere, we didn’t need to live the first CityDAO hack to be warned about it. Every new citizen should have the same knowledge about it than old ones. Knowing about security don’t depend on being part of the CityDAO hacks. That said, it’s more likely old members that need to be considerated for being OGs.
3/ The value is simple to calculate. For NFTs, it’s just the price in ETH it was sold by the hacker accepting offer or FP if it’s less that this. For tokens, it’s the full amount of token if the price dropped since then or the value of the swap made by the hacker.
As I said I already consider starting from 0 again because Im the only person that clicked on that damn link but the link is here because of another mistake innit ? So I also think it’s good and healthy (in reasonable numbers) to help victims to get through this when the mistake is shared. I think 5k capped is not that much and can help some members to get back on their feet.
Thank y’all for reading me, love on everyone whatever is voted <3
