Through this attack, hackers have taken 7,000 Bitcoins (BTC), which were in Binance’s hot purse (the one connected to the network). We are facing the largest cryptocurse hack so far this year.

Not the first time Binance suffers a hack, and early last year l bequeathed to offer $ 250,000 reward to those who could help them find some hackers involved in a robbery.

At that time, the company said it would reserve 10 million dollars in cryptocurrencies for future rewards . We will have to wait to see if they launch a program to reward those who help them find the hackers of this new theft.
