WOO Network and WOO token have made some waves recently. This newfound attention means that there is more focus on the token, both from people looking into WOO and from bad actors who wish to separate you from your hard-earned tokens.
To counter this, the WOO Network team and community admins have prepared several tips and reminders to help keep your WOO safe from scammers:
- Never give out your private key — the private key gives full access to your wallet, WOO admins and customer support won’t ever ask for your private key.
- Only you (or a trusted other) should know about your private key.
- Keep your private key safe — preferably write it down and store it in a safe place.
- Never give out your username and password — WOO admins and customer support won’t ever ask for your password or private key. You risk losing your account by giving away your username and password.
- Don't click random links — scammers may try to DM links that lead to malicious sites and these sites may:
Attempt to install malware on your system
Trick you into giving up your username or password
- Some sites precisely mimic official websites such as the WOO X website, so ensure that you are accessing official WOO related sites only thru these URLs:
WOO Network Website: https://woo.org
WOO X: https://x.woo.org
WOO X Support: https://support.woo.org
Be aware of fake WOO tokens!
One common scam is to create a fake WOO token with the same name. Check that the contract addresses for WOO are correct before buying any tokens on-chain:

- WOO on Fantom — 0x6626c47c00f1d87902fc13eecfac3ed06d5e8d8a
We also created a repository of contract addresses — we recommend bookmarking this page if you use WOO in DeFi applications for ease of use. We will add to this and keep it updated as the WOO token continues to evolve.
There are no official free WOO giveaways or WOO token airdrops!
Common scams are to ask for WOO to be sent to an address and they'll send back double the amount. These don't work and you will get your WOO stolen. There are multiple variations, including fake podcasts and YouTube videos, Telegram communities, and mock websites, so be vigilant! WOO can only be acquired by buying WOO on exchanges or through staking/providing liquidity on several approved platforms, including:
