Fake News About Solana Exploit

This isn’t the first time such an incident has occurred. Gokal also mentioned a previous case where a fabricated testimonial falsely claimed that the former CEO of Alameda Research, Caroline Ellison, had control over a “switch” for Solana.
Gokal stressed the importance of being cautious due to the prevalence of information warfare in the crypto community.
Just last week, a similar case happened on the same news platform, where false news about the approval of a Bitcoin ETF caused a significant increase in Bitcoin’s price. This surge led to short positions being forcibly closed in the market.
