HTX claws back $8M in stolen funds, issues 250 ETH bounty to hacker By Cointelegraph



Huobi Global’s crypto exchange HTX has confirmed the return of the funds stolen by a hacker in late September and issued a 250 Ether (ETH) bounty after resolving the issue.

One of HTX’s hot wallets was drained of 5,000 ETH on Sept. 25, worth roughly $8 million at the time. Shortly after the hack occurred, the firm contacted the hacker and claimed to know their identity.
