Thank you for keeping an eye out, NbunnyPT!
The first layer of security for the Firo blockchain is actually through the masternodes with LLMQ Chainlocks. LLMQ Chainlocks use masternodes in quorums to sign and checkpoint blocks. Thanks to this system in order for a 51% attack to occur the attacker would either have to command enough masternodes to overwhelm not only the masternode network but also to take part in and dominate each of the quorums that are randomly generated. Assuming they were able to do that, or take down the entire masternode network, they would still need to pursue the 51% through mining. At the moment everything is fine on the masternode front and LLMQ Chainlocks are active so no 51% attack is ongoing.

Thanks for the heads up! Echoing @DinkBlitz nothing to be worried about but we have our eye on it.
