Just-In: PolyNetwork Hackers Start Returning $610 Million Stolen Funds

Poly Network became the victim of the largest defi hack in crypto history estimated to be worth $610 million. The stolen funds were sent to three wallet addresses one on the Ethereum network containing over $260 million, BSC address with $250 million, and Polygon address with $85 million. The hackers behind the theft had agreed to return back the funds earlier today and have demanded a multisig wallet after failing to contact the Poly network. The hacker said,

“FAILED TO CONTACT THE POLY. I NEED A SECURED MULTISIG WALLET FROM YOU. IT’S ALREADY A LEGEND TO WIN SO MUCH FORTUNE. IT WILL BE AN ETERNAL LEGEND TO SAVE THE WORLD. I MADE THE DECISION, NO MORE DAO.”

The hackers have started to return back the funds starting with the Polygon network and have already transferred nearly a million dollars worth of USDC.
