The Aurox Wallet is Unstoppable

Crypto enthusiasts, you deserve a safe and easy way to send your cryptocurrencies and NFTs to everyone in the DeFi ecosystem.

We’re happy to announce we’ve added Unstoppable Domains support to our wallet to provide you the ability to send and receive crypto from Web3 domains such as .crypto, .nft, .bitcoin, and more!

We partnered with Unstoppable Domains to provide you with the ability to send to crypto addresses that will replace the bulky, alphanumeric crypto addresses you used in the past. With this integration, Aurox Wallet users can send and receive crypto using Unstoppable Domains and users can also view their Unstoppable domain handles within their Aurox Wallet.

Who is Unstoppable Domains?

Unstoppable Domains is a company that connects Web2 to Web3 using Web3 domain names. Nearly 3 million domains have been registered to date that can be used across more than 600 app, game and metaverse integrations.

Unstoppable Domains allows you to register unique Web3 domains that you can use across hundreds of Web3 applications. Instead of telling your friends to send crypto to a long numeric phrase, you can have them send it to YourNameHere.crypto or YourNameHere.nft.

The Benefits of Unstoppable Domains:

  • One Name Across Web3: Unstoppable Domains allows you to curate and own a unique digital identity across Web3.
  • Low Cost and Lifetime Ownership: Once you buy an Unstoppable domain, you own it for life. Unlike traditional domains on the web that you rent, Unstoppable Domains allows you to own your .crypto or .nft name so you have full control of your digital identity and datai. Easy peasy, and much safer for your crypto.

Why copy-pasting your wallet address can get you scammed

Blockchain-generated wallet addresses can feel impossible to remember, so it’s no wonder most people prefer to copy-paste their wallet addresses using the clipboard function.

They’re using this function to save their address on their computer or send their wallet address to others on Telegram, Facebook or Whatsapp chat whenever they’re requesting payments.

However, copy-pasting your crypto addresses on your clipboard is not a great idea. It comes with a huge security flaw not many users are even aware of:

Cybercriminals are using more and more Clipboard Hijacking Malware to monitor your clipboards and replace your copied text with the attacker’s chosen address. Essentially, they’re sending crypto to their own wallets.

This change is done in a fraction of a second. Because their original address is too complex, most users don’t notice they’ve been hijacked until it’s too late.

The worst part?

These scammers don’t even have to be particularly good at hacking or coding malware.

There are several varieties of clipboard hijacking software freely available online.

Aurox Wallet is Unstoppable

Just like anything in Web3, your identity is completely decentralized, which means personal data associated with your Unstoppable Domains name will not be publicly known.

Unstoppable Domains also makes it easier to remember your crypto wallet address at all times — saving you time, giving you more control over your accounts, and helping you keep your crypto address safe from scammers.

Over the next few months, we’ll be working closely with Unstoppable Domains to increase the user experience within our wallet. We’re excited to take this first step to a safer, and easier Web3 experience.


Security Lightning Rod YTCracker Joins Aurox

Security Lightning Rod YTCracker Joins Aurox

All of us know that cyber and crypto security threats are real. But we aren’t sitting on the sidelines. We are beefing up our security team with a new advisor, Bryce Case, Jr. — known to the underground tech community as YTCracker and a self-described “computer security lightning rod.”

Case has been raising security threats for more than two decades, “devoting himself to the “Dark Arts of Computing.” Today, Case leads a team of AppSec + OffSec engineers and whitehat hackers at Amazon.

During the earlier days of the internet, Case was able to compromise multiple corporate and U.S. Government websites, including Honda and NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Not to do harm, but to alert security problems so that their systems could be strengthened.

Case has always been at the forefront of the digital age, creating one of the first forums dedicated to monetizing the internet, Digital Gangster.

Digital Gangster has an infamous past, but at its core, it was composed of tight knit individuals utilizing the internet to generate money. Including the early adoption of cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin.

Through Digital Gangster, Case became very well connected and respected in the tech community. He’s going to lend his name and rolodex to help make new introductions that will drive the terminal and ecosystem forward.

But even more important, he is going to test and stress the Aurox terminal and identify any potential security flaws he finds. He’ll also recommend and help implement good security practices moving forward.

Welcome to the team, OG.
