Dear hacker […] We would like to contact you and ask you to return the hacked assets, The Poly Network Company wrote in a letter to hackers posted on Twitter.
The amount of money you hacked is the largest in the history of decentralized finance […] The money came from tens of thousands of members of the crypto community.
According to consumer figures, including cybersecurity researcher and Ethereum specialist Mudit Gupta, the theft of Ethereum, BinanceChain and OxPolygon tokens is estimated at nearly $ 600 million.
Polly did not immediately respond to a request from the networkAFP.
On Twitter, the company posted addresses used by hackers and called for the rejection of cryptocurrency wallet holders.
Bitcoins and other crypto-asset transfers are based on blockchain technology, which eliminates the need for intermediaries such as banks as transactions are conducted directly from consumer to consumer.
