Everyone who participated in the TGE are aware of the issue that happened with Early Staking and Earth Node Reservation on 11 October 2021, 11am UTC.
In short, at exactly 11am, the vault suffered a DDOS attack… and after 24 minutes the team came out and gave us an update on the attack.
Much to our relief, the team announced that the entire Early Staking was halted and postponed to prevent any unfair advantage.
First, the Bad News…
Am I disappointed? Of course!
First and foremost, the team gave us the assurance that we can handle the load:
Furthermore, our WMTs are sitting in our wallets doing absolutely nothing for 3-4 months.
We were finally given the opportunity to do something with them… lo and behold, the early staking and EN reservation failed.
No doubt, this pisses off many investors, including myself.
Now, The Good News…
This is an unfortunate event but it is only a small hiccup in the grant scheme of things… no one will remember this in 6 months.
I have been in crypto for a while to understand that no project is flawless… every single one has issues.
Even the big 3 cryptos: BitCoin, Ethereum, and Cardano have many issues. More than you can imagine.
World Mobile is a phenomenal project with real-use cases backed by a great team. Nevertheless, it still faces challenges.
The good news is, the hiccup happened before Mainnet is live.

Isn’t now the perfect time to seize every opportunity we can to learn from this experience?
I believe this is good news because we can only grow stronger from this experience.
Why Did I Invest in World Mobile?
The truth is, I am not interested in the rewards or how the reward system is designed…
Right now, I just hope I can reserve my Earth Node and get over this ASAP so we can start focusing on the real thing.
I am more interested in the technical side of setting up an Earth Node so I can study all the details beforehand and run the node as efficiently and effectively as I can when Mainnet launches.
Why did I invest in World Mobile?
I invested in WMT so I can be part of a movement that changes lives everyday… and hopefully make decent returns at the same time.
What Should We Do Moving Forward?
For the moonbois and ‘wen Lambo?’ folks, I have totally nothing to say… you have every right to be pissed off and angry.
But for the rest of the community, I urge you to not be swayed by this minor hiccup… It is NOT worth our frustration and anxiety over… we have a much bigger mission ahead of us.
Let’s focus on the bigger picture… Let’s bridge the gap of equality by allowing everyone to have equal access to the internet…
This is what it means to invest in World Mobile… making a difference in people’s lives and making money at the same time.
I love the mission. I adore the project. And I still have absolute trust in the team.
The question is… do you?
