In a significant development in the Web3 landscape, leading hardware wallet brand CoolWallet has announced support for the innovative Ethereum layer-2 zero-knowledge (ZK) rollup network, Linea. The cold wallet pioneer’s latest move provides Linea ecosystem users with enhanced cold storage experience and smart contract safety when transacting.

Linea, a brainchild of ConsenSys—the foremost blockchain and web3 software enterprise behind MetaMask, Ethereum’s most widely-used wallet—utilizes zero-knowledge proofs and is Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible. This ensures its applications can integrate seamlessly with the Ethereum blockchain.

While Linea has yet to reveal plans for a native token, its EVM-compatible nature means it employs ETH for transaction fees. Anticipating a potential future airdrop, Web3 enthusiasts are actively participating in frequent transactions and interactions within the Linea ecosystem. This surge in activity, however, has heightened security concerns due to the potential for phishing threats that could empty user wallets.

Bad actors have siphoned off $3.8 billion in 2022 and over $650m in the first half of 2023 so far, of which 56% can be attributed to smart contract vulnerabilities and 15% to phishing attacks.

Popular phishing methods employed include creating fake DApp or NFT projects or acting as founders or team members of legitimate ones. When users connect their wallets to these fraudulent DApps, their funds are quickly stolen.
