Fake Wasabi Bitcoin Wallet Emerges

A fake version of Wasabi wallet, probably designed to steal bitcoins, has emerged online at wasabibitcoinwallet.org. (Don’t visit that site.) Wasabi Lead Developer Exposes Fake Website According to Wasabi developer nopara73 (the only confirmed identity he has), the site is only trying to assault Windows users. Only the Windows version of the wallet is actually non-legitimate. The rest of the download links on the site direct to Wasabi’s actual Github repository. The first malware that pretends to be Wasabi: https://t.co/08VrjnrVsr Notice only the Windows download link points to their own website, the rest is to our GitHub? pic.twitter.com/t7jKViESZ2 — nopara73

[AMA] I’m nopara73, co-founder of Wasabi Wallet. Ask Me Anything.

Hi, I’m nopara73 and I’ll be taking your questions for as long as they run out or I collapse from exhaustion.

Wasabi is an open source, privacy focused desktop wallet that utilizes coinjoins – trustless Bitcoin mixing. I founded it with another developer /u/lontivero and two lawyers /u/bharmat and /u/hgergoil, who are also going to hop in to this conversation.

Feel free to ask me about it, about future privacy improvements, about Bitcoin development in general or anything else. I hope there is at least some demand for this fungibility AMA. Ask me anything!

@alexbosworth: My submarineswaps.org service that provides an on-chain gateway to LN isn’t busy, I only do about 1 swap/day. There’s more activity on @YallsOrg so I tried out @wasabiwallet for all on-chain funds there first. So far so good, now both service funds will be Wasabi coinjoined.
