NEX Extension could act like Cryptonite?


(Greekscreamer) #1

Hi Nexers, as i see Cryptonite extension created their own token and its no longer a free application. 8$ per month is more that i give for vypr vpn which is one of the best.
Would it be possible for Nex extension to act like Cryptonite as i think that it would bring more users at the platform and it would protect the ones that allready use the app. We all saw how well nex extension acts at fake nex pages. I know the team is focus on more importand issues right now just food for thought. maybe it could be a programme that community could put inside the scam adresses and few community members would be in charge to check this adresses before they enter at the extension blacklist, it could be 100% community programme @canesin

What do you mean with ‘act like Cryptonite’ ? What is Cryptonite ?

  • Are you suggesting to add a paywall into the NEX extension ?
  • Are you suggesting to build a crowdsourced blacklist for suspiciuous crypto websites ? (to offload NEX team workload?)
  • Are you asking if NEX extension is (or could become) a safe free alternative for Cryptonite ?

Hi @greekscreamer! Our extension already blocks other sites besides fake NEX versions!
Try entering in a fake myetherwallet (like .io) with the extension to see it in action. Also the community already can send contributions of URL and Blockchain addresses to block!

The list is public in our repository: and to contribute all you need to do is send a pull request or create a issue.

When making a contribution please include a description of how to verify the contribution is of a phishing address, like by providing a twitter link for a phishing attempt.

Never knew about this great feature. We should create awareness about this feature so that people can add more phishing websites to the repository.
Good Stuff :+1:

i knew that the app could block sites but i found it yesterday that we can contribute adresses too!!! yes many of us dont know about this great feature that makes the app lot more safer specially for new users at the crypto space.
