As more info came in, she revealed that Bithumb’s XRP wallet (rLaHMvsPnPbiNQSjAgY8Tf8953jxQo4vnu) was also hacked and saw 20 million XRP or around $6,000 being transferred out.
Wan revised her previous tweet by saying that “only” Bithumb’s hot wallet that was hacked as the cold wallet still seems OK. That said, the total stolen fund still amounts $19,158,000 based on the price as of writing time.
It also seems like it’s already too late for EOS to freeze the funds as the hacker can be seen of liquidating the stolen EOS through ChangeNow, a crypto swap platform that doesn’t have KYC procedures.

This is just insane -

1. It’s the second major Bithumb hack so they literally learned NOTHING from last time

2. Why keeping $15m in a single wallet?? high amount withdraw needs lengthy verification anyway..

Will keep everybody posted with @chiachih_wu @evilcos
3. EOS won’t be able to freeze this time, or it’s now too late

4. Hacker has been disposing the stolen EOS via ChangeNow, a non-custodial crypto swap platform dose not require KYC/account

5. Bithumb is the only top Korean ex operator without a commercial banking partnership pic.twitter.com/SM9Wes0BI6
