NFT scam protector for Web3.
Sunrise is the multi-layer NFT scam protector with two primary walls of defense:
(1) When you visit a web3 site, we verify if the site is safe and block it if it’s a scam.
(2) If you proceed and connect your wallet on the site, we simulate transactions to help you avoid scams and wallet drainers!.
✅ How does it work?
1. The first layer of protection
Most NFT scams lead people to SIMILAR YET FAKE websites. Sunrise recognizes trusted and verified sites and blocks the scam sites. We've verified more than 16,000+ NFT projects. Never connect your wallet to a fake mint site!
We coalesce information from three major sources:
(1) The OpenSea API
(2) CryptoScamDB (MetaMask)
(3) Our own Sunrise database
to build a configuration file that maps Web3 sites to trust scores.
Once a new site is visited, the background script looks for an exact site match in the configuration and showcases the match if one is found. If a URL match is not found, we scan for likely signs of impersonation.
2. The second layer of protection
If you connect your wallet and trigger a transaction, we simulate your transaction on a copy of the blockchain and warn you if you're signing an unsafe transaction.
After the safety checks, you can decide whether you want to continue the transaction on your wallet or if you want to cancel it. For this, we’ve partnered with Pocket Universe.
🔐 Are you worried about privacy?
As with any browser extension, privacy can be a concern. This is why we use an offline configuration approach, benchmark our design against privacy-centric extensions such as uBlock Origin, and have fully open-sourced the extension.
We collect barebones, anonymous usage data that is carefully curated to balance building the best product possible and protecting your privacy.
Your browsing activity, the sites you do or do not visit, is always local and never sent without explicit, opt-in consent.
We are looking forward to building a safer Web3 with you all. Join the open-source project!
