In a sobering reminder of the ongoing security challenges within the cryptocurrency industry, November has been marked as the most “damaging” month of 2023.
With a staggering $363 million lost to thefts, scams and exploits, as reported by blockchain security firm CertiK, the need for heightened security and self-sovereignty in the crypto space has never been more apparent.
High-profile incidents at Poloniex and HTX/Heco Bridge and the significant KyberSwap flash loan attack, highlight the vulnerabilities and risks associated with centralized platforms and other intermediaries.
At Safe Haven, these events further fuel our dedication to creating solutions that empower you to take control of your digital assets and data. Our commitment is reflected in the development of products like Comet 2.0, SafeSwap and Inheriti 2.0, which are designed to enable self-custody and eliminate reliance on middlemen.
By prioritizing direct asset management, we offer a layer of security and autonomy that is crucial for the future of Web3.
Moreover, SafeSwap’s approach of avoiding wrapped tokens adds another layer of security, ensuring that your transactions are direct and your assets remain truly yours.
In these times, when security in the crypto world is being tested, we’re here to offer solutions that put control and safety back in your hands.
So that said, let’s take a look at what happened at Safe Haven this week! 👇
Upcoming Node Reward Distribution
December is set to be an exciting month for SafeNode holders.
Currently, we’re preparing the upcoming Node Reward Distribution, a key event in our calendar.
This is our way of saying thank you to our dedicated node holders who play a crucial role in maintaining and securing the Safe Haven ecosystem.
Stay tuned for more details as we approach the distribution date and get ready to reap the rewards of your contributions to our growing ecosystem!

Important Update for SafeNode and VeThor Wallet Users
For our Safe Haven community members using the VeThor wallet in conjunction with SafeNode and participating in our staking program, there’s an important update you need to be aware of.
Vechain has announced that the VeThor wallet will be transitioning to a storage-only mode, effectively discontinuing its development. This change means the VeThor wallet will soon become outdated, prompting the need for our users to transition to a new wallet app.
Public Service Announcement:
From December 31st, the VechainThor Mobile Wallet will enter 'storage-only' mode, as we make way for VeWorld to become the de facto official wallet of the #vechain ecosystem.

Here’s what we advise you to do:
Export your wallet from VeThor as a keystore file and then import it into the Comet 2.0 wallet.
It’s crucial to understand that this process does not change your wallet address. Therefore, your SafeNode status and participation in the staking program remain unaffected as long as your wallet address stays the same.
So in fact, you have to do nothing in the SafeNode app, you’ll just need to start using another wallet app.
As of December 31st, the VeThor mobile wallet will enter storage-only mode. It’s important to note that even after this change, keystore extraction will remain available, ensuring that your assets continue to be secure.
We urge our community members to make this transition smoothly to ensure continued, uninterrupted use of your wallet in the future.
We’ll also publish some guidelines on how to move from VeThor to Comet 2.0 in the coming days.
New Partnership for Safe Haven
We’re thrilled to announce an upcoming partnership for Safe Haven with a non-EVM chain.
This collaboration is a direct response to our community’s desire for more SHA listings. While it’s not a CEX listing, this partnership is set to bring greater exposure to SHA on a non-EVM chain.
Keep an eye out for more details on this exciting development.
SafeSwap Demonstration Day is Coming
Mark your calendars for January 4th at 5 PM CET, as we join Demonstration Day with SafeSwap on the Optimism Mainnet.
This is a significant opportunity for us to introduce SafeSwap to the Optimism builders and the wider Optimism community.
We have prepared a brand-new tutorial video, tailor-made for the Optimism community, which will be a key part of our presentation.
