The cryptocurrency world has once again been attacked by hackers. Hackers stole almost $ 30 million from staking pools.
The cryptocurrency world has come under a new attack. According to Spartan Protocol’s statement, attackers used BNB worth $ 61 million to raise an estimated $ 30 million in funding from staking pools.
Lark Davis, one of the crypto currency influencers who made a statement on the subject, is one of the many people in the community who reacted to this:
As of now, the details regarding this hacking incident are slowly dropping. According to the statement from the Spartan Protocol, the attack took place in 9 attacks on 4 pools. Currently, efforts are being made to recover stolen funds. Binance was even asked for help. By the way, the stolen tokens and their amounts are as follows:
- 30.7k WBNB ($ 18.9M)
- 4.6M SPARTA ($7.8M at the time of hack)
- 1.3M BUSD-T ($1.3)
- 23.2 BTCB ($ 1.3M)
- 924k BUSD ($ 0.9M)
One thing is certain, this is not an ordinary crypto staking activity. On the other hand, this is not the first attack the crypto world has faced with a hack this year.
Most recently, hackers targeted the famous crypto exchange Hotbit, which affected more than 200 million users. Moreover, the Bithumb exchange has also faced a threat from hackers demanding a ransom of more than $ 16 million in exchange for Bithumb’s failure to touch customer data.
