Web 3 is full of fun and exciting games that can provide hours of entertainment. Unfortunately, it’s also a breeding ground for scams, malware, and other nefarious activities. Recently, a new game called SpacePearl_Eth has been making the rounds on social media, promising players large sums of money for downloading and installing the game. However, it appears that this game may be a scam.

According to a web 3 researcher who posted a long Twitter thread on the subject, the SpacePearl_Eth game contains malware embedded in the .exe file. This means that by downloading and installing the game, players may be unwittingly installing harmful software on their devices. The researcher advises against downloading the game and urges others to spread the word.

In addition to the warning from the researcher, there have been many reports on social media of people being aggressively pushed to download and install the game. Some people have reported receiving unsolicited emails and messages urging them to play the game, which is always a red flag.

The website for SpacePearl_Eth looks legitimate at first glance, with professional graphics and a polished design. However, upon closer inspection, there are some red flags. For example, the website does list team members but they are stolen profiled from LinkedIn. This is a common tactic used by scammers to avoid detection.

To avoid falling victim to this or any other gaming scam, it’s always a good idea to do your research first. Before downloading a new game, search for it on Twitter, Google, and other social media sites with the word “scam” next to it. This can help you avoid potential dangers. Don’t be fooled by the seemingly good quality graphics and website of a game, as scammers are getting better at making their fraudulent schemes look legitimate. Always remember to trust your instincts and stay vigilant when it comes to online scams.

Here at TAGDesk we will soon release a tutorial on how to run a virtual machine, which can help protect you from potential scams like SpacePearl_Eth. Until then, be sure to stay vigilant and always trust your instincts. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. The reason I felt sure it was a scam from the outset was the large offer they presented to me to be a beta tester.

As a final note, one of my Twitter followers has raised concerns about another potential gaming scam. Be sure to stay vigilant and always do your research before downloading any new games. The internet can be a fun and exciting place, but it can also be dangerous if you’re not careful.
