Lesson for other crypto projects 

This was a good lesson for other crypto projects to remain aware of their team members & also from the former employees because existing & Former employees hold significant crucial information about the project and that may impact the whole business system. 

As a suggestion, here we suggest every person in this crypto industry to use always multi-sigs crypto wallets to hold funds, no matter for which purposes will be used by the team. 

And also be careful with all the former employees, and change the security of the system to remain away from any such type of accident.
