I can't imagine how much dislikes after i posted this article, but leshgo.😂

Back again with this idjiot potato. Today i present u another timely update of what i found recently, now is about XFYI project.

Yep.
Another FYI clones (pls stop)

There's multiple users who shared this thing everywhere (incl. twitter and reddit) that it's doing airdroppy-stuff recently.

What's behind it?

After i search their page and posts further, i finally found this XFYI post:

Very eye catching isn't it?

I already imagined how those people who missed UNI airdrops would react.

I also saw about "0.12 FYI for u and extra 0.12 XFYI per anyone u refers!" or something like that but I forgot where is the source, which i believe that motivate them to do these sort kinda stuff…

 

Is it a legit project?

Honestly, idk. But here's some of thoughts and opinion I saw:

Apparently they fixed it already so now you can't submit random text anymore, but still- ETH address-looking texts would do.

Publish0x team is also giving thoughts on this. Now it seems pretty clear for most of us to summarize.


So… It is what it is. DYOR

I personally stay away from fyi looking projects because it's so risky and i'm a noob in this space. (not financial advice tho)

I'm a potato afterall, but hope you guys find my post helpful.
