Nova funds rescue

Nova funds rescue

Hi everyone,
Some users of Nova experienced unsuccesful deposits. They sent eth to the contract but did not get it in Nova app. Ether from all failed tx went to tornado community multisig.


Don’t panic, the issue was on UI and it had been fixed already.

Here is the step by step explanation how to get original sender of a failed tx.

The failed tx has 0x000500004ac82b41bd819dd871590b510316f2385cb196fb000000000001855d messageId. By this messageId we can get info about mainnet tx:

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"eth_getLogs","params":[{"fromBlock":"0xd59f80","address":"0x4c36d2919e407f0cc2ee3c993ccf8ac26d9ce64e","topics":["0x482515ce3d9494a37ce83f18b72b363449458435fafdd7a53ddea7460fe01b58","0x000500004ac82b41bd819dd871590b510316f2385cb196fb0000000000017bca"]}],"id":74}'


So we can see the same amount of ETH and original sender on Etherscan. The sender is 0x44bdb19db1cd29d546597af7dc0549e7f6f9e480

The resulting table of all users with failed txs

Note. One of the users marked as a phisher. So the community will have to decide what to do with his ETH.

What is going to be done for other users

  1. Multisig will send 3.830274834147262021 WETH (amount received) from the xdai multisig to mainnet and distribute ETH as the following:

The phisher address - Fake_Phishing5139 | Address 0x5e9a57b29f06ef051348f60d38c7ccf6b7391a87 | Etherscan that was red flagged by etherscan will not receive the 1 ether in this sending batch. It will be up to the community to decide what we should do with this amount.

We’ll do a snapshot regarding this :slight_smile:

Edit : After speaking with other multisig members, we are not able to judge whether an etherscan flag is legit. That is why, we will send back the 1 eth to the flagged address.

My wallet was wrongly flagged, this seems to be a misunderstanding on my transaction on nova.
My address is

I’ve explained to mobs in the tornado community

A client of mine mistakenly reported my wallet

Hey when can I expect to see the funds back in my account ?

@xgozzy is working on it. We will update you when transfers are done.

After discussion with other multisig team members, we will send you back funds @Lennyots. We are not able to judge if a etherscan/chainanalysis flag is legit or not and it is not our mission.

All of the users in question have been refunded their failed nova deposits.

Hi @Theodore_Vasilis

Can you DM me your Transaction ID, please?

Thank you.

Hi @len,

Can you specify which of the ETH address above is yours, please?

Thank you.
