I had been wondering why the price of HOGE fell so sharply yesterday, given how much excitement there was around recently bridging to PancakeSwap. And it doesn’t stop there, we’re bridging #HOGEeverywhere in our new marketing campaign. There’s new centralized exchange listings coming as well, and popular swaps like have been adding us without our even having to ask. All I see are tons of bullish news and strong signals for optimism. So what gives?

Well I think I found my answer. And it hit me in the pit of my stomach like a punch to the gut. This was announced in telegram last night by Wasso.

Hey everyone, I see lots of rumors going on tonight. I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out the best way to put this out there. Well here it goes….

The truth is Hoge is my first true love in crypto and always will be. As you all know I’ve put in my blood, sweat, and tears into Hoge and have watched it grow since it’s infancy.

Last week, I opened my wallet to send some ETH to a friend that was trying to buy HOGE for the first time and all my HOGE and ETH was gone. I don’t know how I was hacked, all i know is its gone. I’ve been crushed for a while now and quite honestly haven’t really known how to function, which is why I haven’t been active recently. I have been in touch with the police as well as CipherTrace to see if there is anything that can be done to help me reclaim my tokens. All my hard work, our hard work, just stripped away from me.

An opportunity presented itself to me to work on an additional project today and I accepted. This project is not a meme project and is not on the ETH network. My plan is to continue to pop in and advise core if the community will have me. For everyone who believed in me, believe this, I will always lookout for HOGE. I really hope everyone here will still want me to stay around. Loved ones close to me have been feeling some crazy fomo regarding all that biz dev and marketing have achieved recently. I will buy some more HOGE and continue to support anyway I can.
