Navigating Web3 Safely

With the recent migration, Stratis has transitioned from a Bitcoin-based blockchain to an Ethereum-based framework. The move to an Ethereum-based ecosystem opens new possibilities with native Web3 support, utilizing Web3 wallets that differ from what was previously available. The transition from a bespoke wallet such as the STRAX Wallet and Cirrus Core to a multi-network Web3 wallet like MetaMask introduces new risks and exposure to more frequent and sophisticated phishing attempts. Stratis is committed to guiding its community through these challenges, ensuring a safe and informed transition into the Web3 world.

What is Web3?

Web3 refers to the third generation of the Internet, a revolutionary concept that focuses on decentralization and self-sovereign ownership. In this new world, individuals have complete control and ownership over their identity and assets without relying on any central authority. This is a significant step forward in the evolution of blockchain technology, and Stratis is excited to be at the forefront of this movement.

While there are many benefits of web3, primarily focusing on enhanced privacy and control over your data, the absence of an intermediary places the onus on the user to ensure sound security practices and an understanding of how to manage their wallets safely.

Your Defence Mechanism

The following defence mechanisms are essential for anyone navigating this space, aiming to minimize risks and ensure a secure experience.

Stay Informed

Constantly educate yourself about the latest scams. Follow reputable news sources and security blogs dedicated to Web3 and cryptocurrency. Awareness of scammers’ tactics can help you spot red flags.

The below are a great place to start in familiarizing yourself with some of the scammers methods:

https://www.web3isgoinggreat.com/?collection=metamask

https://www.web3isgoinggreat.com/?collection=discord-compromise

https://www.web3isgoinggreat.com/?collection=twitter-compromise

https://www.web3isgoinggreat.com/?collection=drainers

https://www.web3isgoinggreat.com/?collection=permit-phishing

Verify Everything

Always double-check addresses when sending and the legitimacy of projects you’re interacting with. If you’re using a dApp, double-check the website address and review community feedback on social channels, such as Discord or Twitter to ensure it’s not a phishing site or scam.

Safeguard Your Information

Treat your private keys and seed phrases as you would your banking details and identity documents. Use hardware wallets for extra security, and never store these details on internet-connected devices. Be cautious of phishing attempts that try to lure this information from you.

Use Reputable Platforms

Stick to platforms with a strong reputation and user base. Look for platforms that offer additional security features like multi-factor authentication and have a transparent process for reporting and addressing issues.

Enable Security Measures

In addition to two-factor authentication, consider only accessing your accounts on secure networks or utilising a VPN if you are using a public network. Regularly update your software and use strong, unique passwords for different accounts.

Too Good to Be True

Always remain sceptical of offers of airdrops or incentives that appear too good to be true. Check the project’s official social channels to ensure the validity of any campaigns and giveaways before connecting your wallet.

Keep In Touch

Navigating the Web3 world becomes a richer experience when joined by a community of like-minded enthusiasts. Stratis encourages individuals to become part of their thriving community by joining the Discord server. There, members find a supportive space offering insights, advice, and camaraderie to navigate Web3 safely and confidently. Whether seeking guidance on authenticating a dApp or eager to exchange knowledge, Stratis’s Discord community stands ready to welcome and assist!

Off-Chain Token Swap Process

As the initial on-chain Token Swap window has closed, you can now perform an off-chain Token Swap utilizing the Address Ownership Tool. The Address Ownership Tool obtains a list of addresses associated with your wallet and creates a unique signature. This signature is created using your wallet, providing unequivocal proof that you are the owner of the provided address. All relevant detail is saved to a CSV file you must upload using this page. STRAX Token addresses are then queried for their balance at the time of the snapshot, taken at 6 PM on the 20th of March 2023.

This blog will explain the steps needed to successfully generate a proof of your previous STRAX balance.

A high-level summary of the process can be found below.

  • Create new STRAX Token address
  • Run the Address Ownership Tool
  • Provide the Tool with Wallet Detail and new STRAX Address
  • Upload the produced CSV

Create an account for the new STRAX Token (Step 1)

You must obtain a compatible address to receive the new Stratis Token ($STRAX). There are a variety of wallets that the new STRAX Token supports; however, we strongly encourage using MetaMask for the Token Swap, as support for other Ethereum-based wallets cannot be guaranteed.

New to MetaMask?

If you’re new to MetaMask, you can follow the below steps to safely and securely.

https://support.metamask.io/hc/en-us/articles/360015489531-Getting-started-with-MetaMask

Please pay special attention to the dos and don’ts of securing your MetaMask account.

Do

  • Write down your Secret Recovery Phrase somewhere safe. We can’t tell you precisely where, as that depends on your circumstances.
  • The importance of handwriting your Secret Recovery Phrase is that it cannot be stolen online. If you store it in a file in an internet-linked cloud storage folder, for example, it could theoretically be stolen.
  • Double-check your spelling and that you wrote down every word in the same order they were given.

Don’t

  • Keep it in an easily discovered or easily hacked location; e.g. in a cloud-saved document or email titled “Seed Phrase”; on a post-it note stuck to your computer.
  • Provide your seed phrase to anyone, even if they say they’re from MetaMask Support.
  • Change the order of the words.

Create a new MetaMask Account (Optional)

You can create a new account within your MetaMask to manage the new STRAX Token, or alternatively, you can use your existing account.

Steps to create a new account can be found below:

https://support.metamask.io/hc/en-us/articles/360015289452-How-to-add-accounts-in-your-wallet#:~:text=Click%20’Add%20account%20or%20hardware,hit%20’Create’%20to%20confirm

Alternative Wallets

In addition to MetaMask, the new network accommodates users who prefer alternative wallet solutions. The chosen wallet must support custom RPC servers to ensure compatibility with the new Stratis ecosystem. OneKey Wallet is an excellent example of such a wallet, offering the required functionality. This inclusivity ensures that everyone in the Stratis community can participate in the token swap, regardless of their preferred wallet.

Please perform your own research if you choose to use an alternative wallet.

Obtain Address Ownership Tool (Step 2)

The AddressOwnerShipTool must be used to prove ownership of funds; please download the relevant package to your device using the release page below:

https://github.com/stratisproject/AddressOwnershipTool/releases

Extract the contents of the ZIP Archive to a safe location on the device where your STRAX or Cirrus Wallet is located.

Generate Proof (Step 3)

The AddressOwnershipTool can be used to generate proofs for both STRAX Network and the Cirrus Network. When running the tool, you need to define which network you want to generate proofs for. Please follow the below steps to successfully generate a proof of your wallet.

1. Extract the AddressOwnershipTool

Open Command Prompt (Windows) or Terminal (MacOS/Linux) and navigate to the location where the AddressOwnershipTool was extracted; the simplest way to do this is to type “cd” and paste the AddressOwnershipTool folder into the window and hit ENTER.

  • Scalability: The Type 4 prover significantly enhances scalability, a critical factor as the Stratis ecosystem continues to grow. This ensures that the platform is able to handle increasing demand without sacrificing performance.

zkSync Success Stories

The adoption of zkSync technology is backed by success stories and statistics that genuinely validate its effectiveness. A prime example is the well-known NFT project, Pudgy Penguins. By leveraging zkSync for their transactions, Pudgy Penguins was able to enhance their platform’s performance and user experience significantly.

Before utilizing zkSync, Pudgy Penguins faced challenges common to many blockchain-based projects, such as slow transaction times and high gas fees, which impacted user engagement and overall experience. However, after adopting zkSync, they experienced a remarkable transformation, resulting in a $400M success story.

Our decision to integrate zkSync, particularly focusing on the Type 4 prover, is informed by these successes, ensuring that Stratis remains at the forefront of blockchain innovation.

Looking Ahead

The deployment of a Layer-2 solution is just the beginning of Stratis’s journey towards continuous improvement and innovation of its platform, highlighting its mission of continuous development to remain at the forefront of the blockchain space.  In alignment with Stratis’s forward-thinking ethos, Stratis is focused on deepening its engagement with the zkSync ecosystem through a commitment to developing further tooling to advance its own platform and contribute to the broader zkSync ecosystem.

This strategic shift underscores Stratis’s intent to drive innovation and development within the zkSync landscape, offering substantial support to developers steering the future of decentralized applications. In parallel, Stratis Ventures, the platform’s dedicated arm for fostering the growth of standout startups, will prioritize projects employing zkSync technology. This initiative aims to harness the transformative potential of blockchain, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, mirroring the success stories within the blockchain ecosystem, such as the notable growth of decentralized trading protocols.

Stratis will also leverage existing tooling, such as the zkSync bridge, to ensure a seamless user experience for cross-chain transactions between the Stratis Layer-1 and Layer-2 platforms. This integration is designed to facilitate a more interconnected and user-friendly blockchain environment, enhancing the overall utility and accessibility of the Stratis platform.

Finally, the Layer-2 will serve as the foundation for Stratis’s regulated stablecoin project, GBPT, as issuing a regulatory-compliant stablecoin, pegged to the Great British Pound, remains one of Stratis’s core focuses.

Through these initiatives, Stratis is not just looking ahead but is actively shaping the future of blockchain technology. By embracing zkSync’s Layer-2 solutions, focusing on impactful projects, and enhancing cross-chain functionality, Stratis is demonstrating its commitment to delivering a robust, secure, efficient, and innovative blockchain ecosystem.
