Team Finance, a crypto token launchpad, has suffered a $14.5 million exploit in relation to a smart contract bug in its migration feature, the firm said on Thursday.

The platform has paused all activities in the wake of the exploit, it said in a tweet. It has also urged the exploiter to get in contact for a bug bounty payment.

The exploiter targeted the Uniswap v2 to v3 migration function, which had previously been audited.

The firm said that it has reached out to the exploiter to find a resolution and has contacted exchanges to blacklist the exploiters' address.

Team Finance joins a slew of crypto firms that have exploited recently. Decentralized exchange Mango Finance that suffered a $114 million exploit earlier this month, while BNB Smart Chain was hit with a $100 million exploit on Oct. 7.

The platform currently has $127 million in total value locked (TVL) following the loss, down from $147 million yesterday according to data from DefiLlama.
