A hacker managed to steal $613 million in crypto coins on Tuesday, the biggest crypto heist ever. A good booty, but the hacker won’t plan on keeping track of everything. Because the hacked company said that a part of it has already been returned.
Mr. White Hat is arguably one of the weirdest hackers ever. Because after stealing hundreds of millions of dollars in crypto coins, the hacker explained his actions with a ‘Q&A’ and also returned part of the money. “I take responsibility for demonstrating the vulnerability of the system before anyone else can abuse it,” he said in the Q&A, explaining more about the cryptocurrency stolen from cryptocurrency platform Poly Network, which acts as an intermediary. Manages cryptocurrency transactions. The platform was attacked through Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain and Polygon.

After the theft, Poly Network asked on Twitter that the criminal would return the money. And it worked, because the hacker revealed that he wanted an address where he could do so. In this way he was already able to return a very large portion. According to Elliptic co-founder Tom Robinson, each deposit comes with some explanation. He says he did it “for fun” and “prefers to remain unknown to save the world”.
On Twitter, Poly Network also indicated that a large portion of the money was deposited in a multisig wallet controlled by the company and Mr. White hat. However, the company indicates that not everything has been returned yet, but the intention is to get everything back.
