Protocol Podcast host loses all of his BTC savings in a phishing scam.

Protocol Podcast host Eric Savics tweeted last week that he lost his Bitcoin savings in a hardware phishing scam and asked if anyone has ever successfully retrieved stolen Bitcoin. He tweeted that he lost 12 bitcoins in a phishing scam. The crypto community offered support to Eric and donated to him and as well offered forensic help. 12 bitcoins at the time of writing are worth over $100,000. 

A fake KeepKey Chrome Extension asked for the seed phrase of Eric’s wallet. 

A “seed phrase” refers to a combination of words that can act as the private key of a bitcoin wallet and do the transactions. According to Eric, the phishing attack happened due to a fake KeepKey Chrome Extension that asked for the seed phrase of his hardware wallet. He tweeted, “All my savings are gone. I have zero Bitcoin.” Currently, the stolen funds are in another address and have not yet been moved. Bitcoin transactions are irreversible in nature. Once Bitcoins are transferred to another wallet, there is no mechanism to reverse it.

The crypto community comes in support of Eric Savics. 

The crypto community came in support of Savics in any way they can. Even prominent crypto personalities chimed in. The CEO of Binance, Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao, said that he will ask the team in Binance to blacklist the address of the stolen Bitcoins. Many in the community donated some Bitcoins to Eric out of the goodness of their heart. Savics was initially reluctant but proceeded to share his Bitcoin address with people. At the moment, his bitcoin address has 0.77 Bitcoin worth $7,167. He vowed to return the money if he retrieved his BTC stash. Eric also shared that a forensics firm has already reached out to help in the retrieval. 

This phishing attack gave crypto critics one more chance to target the crypto industry. Nouriel Roubini tweeted and criticized the crypto financial system for not being secure enough and people losing their funds each day. Roubini said that there is 100% security in the legacy financial system.

Ur-Energy Announces Extension of State Bond Loan and Provides Update

Avatar

Published

on

LITTLETON, Colo., Oct. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Ur-Energy Inc. (NYSE American:URG)(TSX:URE) (the “Company” or “Ur-Energy”) is pleased to announce it has completed amendments to its State of Wyoming Bond Loan to defer further principal payments for an additional 18 months, which represents a savings of approximately $7.83 million during the extension. With the amendments to the Bond Loan, we will continue to make interest-only payments until October 2022, when we will resume principal and interest payments until the loan is fully repaid.

Ur-Energy CFO Roger Smith said, “We continue to be grateful to State Treasurer Meier, the Sweetwater County Board of County Commissioners, and officials at all levels in Wyoming who are working so diligently to serve their constituency. The support they have shown for the uranium industry and for Lost Creek has been unwavering. They continue to champion our resolve to return to full production operations at Lost Creek when market conditions warrant.”

In addition to the restructuring of the State Bond Loan, we have continued to implement other Company-wide cost-saving measures as we await the recommended relief from the US Nuclear Fuel Working Group report and further positive developments in the uranium markets. Recently, we further reduced production operations at Lost Creek to market-appropriate levels. The reduced production levels allowed us to make further operating cost reductions at Lost Creek and related support cost reductions at the corporate office. The cost reductions include savings from additional reductions in force at both locations as well as other cost containment measures. Together with the further deferral of principal payments on the State Bond Loan, these measures will result in substantial savings to the Company, estimated to exceed $7 million and $4 million in calendar years 2021 and 2022, respectively.  

Ur-Energy continues to support ongoing efforts in Washington D.C. to reinvigorate the uranium production industry and secure a healthy nuclear fuel cycle for the country. Again, the elected officials of Wyoming lead these efforts. Senator Barrasso and Representative Cheney have each introduced legislation to authorize a uranium reserve to support America’s nuclear reactors with domestically produced fuel. Their legislative efforts are designed to revitalize the country’s nuclear infrastructure and echo the recommendations made by the US Nuclear Fuel Working Group report.

We also commend Senator Barrasso’s effort to codify the recent extension of the Russian Suspension Agreement (RSA). The newly completed RSA amendment continues caps on Russian imports of nuclear fuel to the US for an additional 20 years, through 2040. The amendment reduces the current cap of 20% of demand to an average of 17% of demand over the 20-year period, with reductions starting in 2028 and continuing through 2040. The amendment also closes other practical loopholes to protect the US market, provides for administrative reviews during the term and contemplates potential extensions.

We will provide further guidance for Q4 2020 in our Form 10-Q, which is currently anticipated to be filed on Friday, October 30, 2020.
