Poly Network – a computer network that allows users to transfer digital tokens across different blockchains – has set up three wallet addresses in the hopes that the hacker who drained about $600 million in crypto on Tuesday will keep his word and return at least some of the stolen funds.
- The hacker's Polygon address sent $10,000 in USDC to one of the wallets Poly Network set up at 8:46 UTC.
- At the time of writing, the three addresses hold just under $400 million after sending money to other addresses, including DeFi liquidity pool Ellipsis Finance.
UPDATE (9:15 UTC): Adds that hacker returned $10,000 USDC.
