Key Takeaways:

CyberConnect dispels rumors surrounding CYBER token manipulation and market control.

The firm acknowledges a "slip-up" in its inaugural proposal at Cyber DAO, contributing to market uncertainty.

New safeguards and a revised proposal for a multi-network bridge involving Ethereum, Optimism, and BNB Chain are forthcoming.

In a statement released on September 3, 2023, CyberConnect, a decentralized social protocol, addressed concerns about its CYBER token. Acknowledging an error in its initial proposal at Cyber DAO, the company aims to quell rumors and market instability. The statement, dated September 2, 2023, delineates plans for new safeguards and an updated proposal to ensure equitable CYBER access across multiple blockchain networks. As previously reported by Blockchain.News, CyberConnect withdrew Proposal CP-1 following a 40% crash in the value of the CYBER token. The primary aim of the now-retracted proposal CP-1 was to 'optimize CYBER liquidity across Ethereum (ETH), Binance Smart Chain (BSC), and Optimism networks through a series of active balancing strategies.'

Addressing the Rumor Mill

On September 1, 2023, CyberConnect retracted a proposal at Cyber DAO after community members identified an error. The CyberConnect official stated, 

We take full responsibility for this mistake and are introducing safeguards to ensure such events are never repeated.

The withdrawn proposal had intended to optimize CYBER liquidity across Ethereum (ETH), Optimism (OP), and BNB Chain but included a "slip-up" concerning the unlocked amount of CYBER in the community treasury.

Market Dynamics and Liquidity Concerns

The statement also spotlighted a surge in CYBER demand in Korea, where major exchanges currently facilitate CYBER deposits and withdrawals exclusively on Ethereum. This exclusivity has resulted in "unprecedented price differences in CYBER across exchanges." To mitigate this, CyberConnect introduced the CYBER Multichain Liquidity Balance proposal, aiming for equitable and fair CYBER access across exchanges.

Future Steps

CyberConnect is set to introduce a revised proposal in Cyber DAO, focusing on a bridge to facilitate free CYBER movement across Ethereum, Optimism, and BNB Chain. This proposal will undergo a multi-day voting period for community scrutiny. Additionally, an external, reputable expert will be enlisted to conduct a security audit of the bridge. A Dune dashboard has also been established to offer a transparent view of CYBER's total and circulating supply.

Mission and Commitment

CyberConnect reaffirmed its mission to "decentralize social networking on the Internet," emphasizing its dedication to transparency and community engagement. The company stated,

While short-term market volatility may serve as a distraction, the long-term success of CYBER hinges on its community, ecosystem, industry-leading products, and steadfast commitment to a better internet.


CyberConnect's statement serves as a blueprint for crisis management in the volatile crypto landscape. By acknowledging its oversight and outlining transparent corrective measures, the firm aims to rebuild trust and stabilize the CYBER token market.
