Bithumb Has Recovered Nearly Half of Funds Stolen in Last Week’s Hack

Yesterday, cryptocurrency exchange Bithumb claimed it has recovered nearly half of the funds stolen last week. As reported, the hackers breached Bithumb's hot wallets on the 20th of June making off with approximately $31 million, of which more than 45% were already recovered, reducing the value of the still-missing funds to just under 19 billion KRW (~$17 million) as of June 27. The company stated:

"The main reason for the reduction of the damage is due to the ongoing participation, support and cooperation of cryptocurrency exchanges and cryptocurrencies foundations [sic] across the world,” Bithumb said in the announcement. “Also our quick response to the cyber-attack by removing cryptocurrencies from hot wallet to cold wallet effectively contributed to reducing the overall damage.”
