Gabagool said it has detected suspicious Ribbon coin activity using Etherscan, a tool for tracking blockchain transactions.

There are 36 wallets that accept Ribbon tokens and immediately exchange them for the popular Ethereum.

Later, Gabagool was able to find out who owned the wallets, namely a junior employee of Divergence Ventures, the venture capital firm that backed Ribbon.

At the top of this Ribbon hoo-ha, Gabagool and Sisyphus created a crowdfunding bounty program to reward people for info on "bad behavior" on DeFi.
