Community leaders and developers Dogecoin Celebrity nicknamed Mishaboar recently issued important security advice for all Dogecoin holders.
In an X post, the developer raised the alarm about a circulating email encouraging users to withdraw funds from the “Dogechain.info” website.
The bottom line of this article is that this email is indeed legitimate. However, you should type “dogechain.info” directly into your web browser rather than clicking on the link in the email. This is an important step in protecting against phishing attempts.
Mishaboar stressed the importance of independently verifying information and highlighted that Dogechain’s “.com” domain is associated with fraud and fraudulent activity.
– The correct domain is dogechain dot INFO (Don’t trust, please verify: please verify this information yourself before taking my word for it). The .com domain has been involved in a scam/phishing attempt.https://t.co/X7q0cZMPlP

Many users have experienced wallet issues due to missing 2FA authentication. If this is the case, users can seek assistance from the website developer, who may require legal documentation to deactivate 2FA verification as long as additional credentials are available.
Safety is top priority
Mishaboar’s general security advice is to never store cryptocurrency in an online wallet, whether encrypted or not.
Online wallets are vulnerable to hacking attacks, potential developer misconduct, and website breaches. Developers strongly advocate self-service wallet management and emphasize the need to back up keys multiple times and store mnemonic phrases offline.
He recommends only keeping small amounts of funds in hot wallets (such as smartphone wallets) and encourages new users to be cautious when dealing with smart contracts, including NFTs.
Finally, Dogecoin’s lead developer reminded users to withdraw funds from exchanges, emphasizing the importance of maintaining control and security of their crypto assets.
