Cryptocurrency portfolio and extension for decentralized app Ethereum (DApp) MetaMask has blocked the most popular DApp for Ethereum, 333ETH. The Next Web reported on the block Friday, September 28th.
333ETH promises "permanent" Ether (ETH) payments to investors' portfolios through smart contracts on an initial down payment. The latest in a series of popular Ethereum DApps to attract scam charges, is currently ranked as the most popular on the DAppRadar monitoring site.
In Comments on Twitter, MetaMask said he opted for the creation of the block, which he added would be optional, due to the fact that 333ETH DApp was an "active fraud". MetaMask stated that it was in the interest of users.
"This site has never been the most used Dapp, and it has been actively phishing people," the official Twitter account of the extension he wrote Thursday.
"We will add the possibility to skip our block page, we do not want to tell people what they can visit, but this site is an active scam".
Some of the most widely used Ethereum DApp products have been produced this year including Fomo3D and PoWH 3D, both openly admitted that they were not financially sound investment opportunities.
Fomo3D, for example, describes itself as an "ironic blow on the ICO space of cryptocurrency, putting every player in the terrifying and tempting position of getting out of Scam all and running away with huge amounts of life-changing Ethereum."
According to DappRadar, 333ETH currently holds over 7,000 ETH ($ 1.58 million) in its smart contract.
