A company specializing in cryptocurrency transfers announced Tuesday, August 10, that it was the victim of a record theft, the largest ever observed by the sector, valued at $ 600 million by a specialist. “Dear hacker (…) we want to get in touch with you and urge you to return the assets that you have hacked”, wrote the Poly Network company in a letter to hackers posted on Twitter.

“The amount of money you hacked is the biggest in the history of decentralized finance, continues the company in its message. This money comes from tens of thousands of members of the crypto community. “ The theft involves tokens from Ethereum, BinanceChain and OxPolygon. The company posted the addresses used by hackers on Twitter, and called on cryptocurrency wallet holders to blacklist them.

“The authorities of any country will regard your misdeeds as a major economic crime and you will be prosecuted. (…) You should speak to us to find a solution”, insists Poly Network in its letter. Transfers of bitcoins and other crypto-assets rely on blockchain technology. In principle, it eliminates the need for intermediaries such as banks, with transactions being made directly from user to user.
