#FLOKI CROSS-CHAIN BRIDGE DISABLED WITH EFFECT IMMEDIATELYhttps://t.co/XTwXgLBHPs
— Floki Inu (@RealFlokiInu) February 3, 2022
The decision is to protect FLOKI holders from loss since the team has discovered an exploit that could potentially put users at risk.
FLOKI team noted in their medium blog post that they had been informed on time about the exploit, and as soon as they were told, the team immediately decided to disable the cross-chain bridge so that bad actors couldn’t take advantage of it.
The team behind FLOKI further highlighted that the exploit is present in all OKLG-powered cross-chain bridges (not just the FLOKI Bridge). The developer is actively working to ensure other projects using the bridge are not at risk.
The company ensured its holders that the exploit was discovered on time. Therefore, all their FLOKI tokens are safe, and they don’t have to worry, nor do they have to do anything.
