Blockchain Capital’s X Profile Seems to Have Been Hacked

In Brief

Venture Capitalist Blockchain Capital’s X profile seems to be hacked. On August 8, the company posted that its token, $BCAP, is now “officially tradeable.”

In the X post, Blockchain Capital invites followers to claim their free tokens. Notably, the link in the post is directed to “blockchainncapital.com” instead of “blockchaincapital.com,” the official website of the VC fund.

“Everyone is eligible to claim $BCAP tokens and start earning true passive income. The claim window will be open for one day, but be fast since supply will run out quickly,” states the announcement.

The “BCAP” token can actually be found on several crypto exchanges. However, it was listed on the platforms, including Binance and Coinmarketcap, on August 9. Its current price is around $2.6. It’s worth noting that the coin is not listed on platforms for trade and service, and its price has never changed.

In the X post, Blockchain Capital invites followers to claim their free tokens. Notably, the link in the post is directed to “blockchainncapital.com” instead of “blockchaincapital.com,” the official website of the VC fund.

The announcement goes on: “We’ve also expanded our team to provide support due to the anticipated influx of questions and concerns. Our token goes beyond the norm; it’s a testament to our relentless commitment to our community and teams,” further wrote Blockchain Capital in an X thread.

Several X (former Twitter) users got concerned about the company’s post. “VC accounts are also targeted. Blockchain Capital seems to have been hijacked. Are summer vacation kids diligently working on scams in a short-term intensive program?” wrote an X user named Cryptonomori in a post.

On a side note, the Pay Pal stablecoin PYUSD, which was launched on August 7, will also likely generate a lot of scam attempts. So, individuals should pay extra attention and not click any links or sign transactions without prior research.
