Hacker Began to Return Stolen Money to Poly Network
The hacker who recently hacked into the protocol of the Poly Network DeFi gateway project started the returning of the stolen $611 million.
According to CoinDesk, the attacker announced his intention to return the money and on August 11 made the first payments in the amount of 1,010,100 USDC. In addition, he sent $1.1 million in Bitcoin pegged BTCB tokens, $2 million in Shiba Inu and $622,243 in FEI stablecoins.
