We can’t believe this actually happened

The world of crypto is rich territory for some pretty mind-bending stories.

Nobody saw this coming.

The Juno blockchain community officially voted to reclaim millions of dollars worth of tokens after a Japanese man was accused of gaming a Juno airdrop – worth up to US$120 million.

An unprecedented community vote was scheduled to confiscate the JUNO tokens held by 24-year-old Takumi Asano, who claimed the funds were owned by a community of people he co-invests with.

However, the “game” funds – worth close to US$36 million, were accidentally sent to the wrong address due to a programming error.

Initially intended for a “Unity” address controlled by the Juno community, the error resulted in 3 million revoked JUNO tokens being transferred to an invalid blockchain address.

Now, neither Asano nor the Juno community have access to the tokens.
