Researchers have detected an unusual transaction of $718M $ on the BSC network, the meaning of this is not clear at the moment, but many are already talking about a possible hack 🤷‍♂️…
However, until official statements are made, it is unlikely to be possible to establish this - due to the technical side of the issue!

Source 1:

Source 2:
718M $ including:

1,04М BNB
$389М in venusBNB
$28.8М BUSD
Tether just blacklisted the address it seems and someone is exiting quickly into ftm/avalanche -> eth and he is using stargate and multichain/anyswap!

Suspect address:…

Proof of Tether banning assets:
Possible illegal activity is indicated by the too large slippage with which $10M BUSD was exchanged for $9M BSC-USD……
The Suspect wallet was funded through BSC Token Hub for 1 million BNB, then the funds were placed in the Venus lending, from which $150M USDC/USDT/BUSD was borrowed. The funds then began to move across various networks (ETH, FTM)…

Also there are news like this rn:
BSC blockchain has just been halted. No new blocks on bscchain!

There is: ~426m in bsc, 53m in eth, 50m in phantom ~10m on eht l2's so as the chain has been stopped, estimated loss is 115M $, I’ll keep you posted!
Before the hack, the BNB bridge exploiter registered as a relayer for this bridge!

🕊 In this difficult time it's hard to think about anything but global problems, but… I do want us to have something to distract ourselves with, so nothing in my blog will change in terms of content in the near future!

Thank you very much for your attention and take care 🕊
I get asked a lot and I'd like to say it again…

My position: I am 100% pacifist, anti-war, pro-humanity, pro-human-rights.

Mixed (moderate) political views. I love all people.
P.S. New articles 🔜

Twitter put me under a shadow ban so I will delete my recent tweets.

Full thread with more detailed information on Wintermute is still accessible 👇…
Last time deleting interests and waiting for 2 days worked out for me, gonna try it this time as well...

@adrianhetman how you was able to escape?
More likely this was an issue…

First cross-blockchain replay attack detected 👀
Good advice from @toschi_eth 👇

Sign 1 transaction transferring $ETH to yourself in (Ethereum mainnet) to start with a different nonce when you sign the first transaction in ETHW.
Also. Only 250 WETH can be moved through the bridge, so it's full for today.

Gm! I’m a bit late with it, but, please share to those who own deployers of smart contracts with vanity addresses generation tool - profanity!…
I have been asked several times about how Authors from @1inch derived private key from public, then started searching for info on this attack and found a very interesting discussion with its creators - I have compiled everything in this article FYI…
