Zeppelin / Smart Contract Solutions. Also reviewed Arcade City, Golem, etc. It's just scammers scamming scammers all the way down.

So much for Verge $XVG and their IP address privacy, someone's publishing originating IP addresses for Verge transactions (not just general node IP addresses). Considering that IP address obfuscation is their single privacy claim, looks like they're toast.
