Fairyproof’s Retrospective for 2022 and Wishes for 2023
2022 was a year full of hardships and challenges
Although the crypto space was still struggling in a bear market, hackers run rampant, ravaging users without mercy.
Numerous crypto users were exploited. They arrived expectant to a new world full of hopes and dreams, but left with tears and despair, away from the “wild west” crypto wasteland.
The positive side is that the crypto space witnessed numerous countries adopting blockchain technology, connecting every corner of the world and forming a seemingly endless new one.
As a blockchain security company, Fairyproof’s mission is to safeguard the blockchain applications and crypto assets of our clients. 2022 may not be a good year for the crypto space, but we were still firmly grounded in fulfilling our mission and striving to provide the best for everyone.
We feel the need to fulfill greater responsibilities, meet higher expectations, and overcome more challenges after experiencing these incidents and observing these losses.
