Recall that earlier EXMO froze the withdrawal of cryptocurrencies after revealing an abnormal withdrawal of funds from exchange wallets to unknown addresses. The exchange found out that the number of stolen funds is 6%, and not 5%, as previously stated. Exchange contacted CipherTrace, Chainalysis, and Crystal to identify attackers.

“An internal security audit showed that the withdrawal affected hot wallets BTC, XRP, ZEC, USDT, ETC and ETH, which is about 5 percent of total assets,” the announcement said..

For the first time, the exchange identified suspicious transactions on December 21 at 05:27 Moscow time.

Funds are safe

EXMO claims that they immediately reacted to the incident and withdrew the remaining funds from the hacked hot wallets. The exchange also assured that it will cover all damage from its own insurance fund:

“We assure you that in the event that users have lost funds, EXMO will fully compensate the damage from its own insurance fund”.
