Beware of sophisticated scam attempts!

Dear Horizen community.

We noted that our support staff is being impersonated on Discord/Telegram. The impersonator is sharing a fraudulent copy of Sphere by Horizen on GitHub that spreads malware.

Official Horizen software is only available from Windows/Mac releases are code signed with a certificate belonging to “Zen Blockchain Foundation. Our team opened a support ticket with GitHub to remove the fraudulent copy of Sphere by Horizen.

This is a friendly reminder to be sure to always double check the account and certificate when downloading updates, and that Horizen team members will never ask for funds or for private keys.
