Hi Ren community!
Nate here from Zcash. I’m really interested and excited to see how ren is developing.
I’m tracking down on-Ethereum-chain metrics related to renZEC, and got confused about some details, maybe I discovered an imposter ERC20?
I search for “renZEC” on blockchair and see two hits:
- The first hit is for blockchair: renZEC @ 0x1c5db575e2ff833e46a2e9864c22f4b22e0b37c2. This matches the single search hit on etherscan (footnote 1): Same address, supply of
4,165 renZEC, and creation date:
- The second hit is for this suspicious token contract which shows a creation date of
2020-11-03 19:56and a supply of
15,554,397 renZEC(which is larger than the Zcash main chain supply).
So I’m about 99% sure this second one is a scam. What I can’t tell is how it’s being used for a scam. Does anyone know how to dig into that? My ethereum sleuthing a work in progress. Also, is there any way to flag a fraudulent ERC20?
Footnote 1: I was limited to two links per post as a new account, so here’s the etherscan url:
