Hi, everyone. Do you know PEKO?
I think most of the people who know it think it's a scam project.

I was a frontend developer of PEKO, the IDO and lending sites of PEKO are what I developed with a smart contract developer.
The project was going well originally.
When we released the test version of the PEKO lending website, over 20,000 users of PEKO discord server reviewed it.
I couldn't hide my pleasure whenever I saw the feedback from each user, even if it was a bug report.
After releasing the test version of the lending protocol, we built the IDO site and released its test version too.
After enough testing (the number of test versions of lending protocol was 3.), we released both websites on the mainnet.
The private sale and public sale of IDO hit the hard cap in a very short period.

However, 2 days ago, disaster came.
Suddenly, the smart contract sent me a message.
"Hey, mate. Did you see the sites? They were down."
I was surprised. "What?!"
I checked it, and it was right. The IDO and lending sites were all down.
I asked, "What happened? Why were they all down?"
"I don't know."
I sent a message to the project manager right away.
"Hello. The sites were down. What happened?"
He read the message but didn't reply.
After a few minutes, he blocked me.
I thought. "What's this? Was I scammed? Were he and his sponsor team a scammer group?"
I couldn't understand. The project was excellent, and had a very bright future.
How come? How come did they down the sites and disappeared?
I had the project manager's telegram contact info.
I sent him a message through it.
Fortunately, he read my message, and replied.
He said I or the smart contract developer stole the fund from the owner's wallet.
"What?!" I was astonished.
"You didn't share any info about the owner's wallet. And I built only the frontend, so I didn't touch the smart contract. It means I had no chance to place a backdoor to steal funds. Why are you doubting me?"
Then, it seems he agreed with what I said.
He said, "I don't know exactly. I think the smart contract developer stole the fund since you hadn't any chance to access the backend. Everything was going well but this morning, I couldn't connect to the owner's wallet and all funds in it were withdrawn somewhere. We were scammed."
"Then, why did you shut down the discord server?"
"Because our project is already dead because of that stealing."
...
I called the smart contract developer.
"Hey. The owner's wallet was hacked. Do you know the reason?"
"I don't know. I was gonna ask the project manager but he told me bye and blocked me."

I can't know who the scammer is, who is cheating me.
Meanwhile, the funds were washing through various CEX and DEX platforms.

I had thought I would be a legendary developer of a famous project when over 20,000 people reviewed the site I built.
But now, I have become a failed developer of a huge scam project.
I deployed the sites on my vercel account again, though it's useless.
Now I am watching those useless failed sites with sighing.
