Hackers attacked the crypto-currency platform Bancor. According to some reports, they managed to withdraw about $ 13.5 million in tokens. The company began an investigation and assures that the user’s wallets were not harmed.
The attack happened last night. Almost 24,984 ETH units (approximately $ 12.5 million) and 229.35 million tokens NPXS (about a million dollars) passed under the control of the attackers. At the same time, the administration of Bancor managed to prevent the loss of 3.2 million BNT – otherwise the damage would be $ 10 million more.
Bancor plans to resume operations within 24 hours. The exchange rate of the domestic currency BNT against the background of these events collapsed by almost 15%.
Last year, Bancor raised $ 153 million in the ICO.
