A small exchange company in Slovakia has revealed that some hackers managed to break into its wallets and steal about $ 1,6 million in various cryptocurrencies.
Eterbase announced on its channel in Telegram on Tuesday that the so-called "hot wallets" for six of the listed cryptocurrencies had been violated.
On Monday night, the hackers stole Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Tezos, Algorand and TRON, carrying them money in public wallets that have since been emptied. At current prices, the stolen amount is worth almost $ 1,6 million.
Eterbase shared the addresses of the wallets on its corporate channel Telegram, but did not disclose further details until its investigation into the attack was completed.
Headquartered in Bratislava, Slovakia, Eterbase lists several euro trading pairs against a range of conventional and digital data related to DeFI.
According to CoinGecko, the exchange company has an average of about $ 3 million in daily trading volume.
The company has contacted the authorities and transactions and withdrawals have been suspended until September 10.
CoinDesk asked Eterbase if it would compensate users affected by the hack, but received no response.
