Hacked KyberSwap Offers $50 Million Reward To Hackers To Return Stolen Fund

  • Decentralized cryptocurrency exchange KyberSwap is negotiating a reward offer with the hacker.

KyberSwap, the decentralized cryptocurrency exchange that suffered a nearly $50 million hack on November 22, is currently negotiating a reward offer with the hackers.

At this point, KyberSwap offers the hackers a 10% reward to return the stolen funds.

In an on-chain message sent to the hacker, KyberSwap stated that he should return 90% of the stolen funds to a specific address by 6 a.m. on November 25, and that if he returned, 10% of the stolen funds (approximately $4.7 million) would be given as a reward.

This reward offer was made after the hacker previously left a message stating that he wanted to negotiate with the team. The hackers’ message reads, 

“Dear Kyberswap Developers, Employees, DAO members and LPs, negotiations regarding the funds will begin when I am fully rested. Thank you.”

As you may remember, the attack at the beginning of this week targeted KyberSwap’s Elastic pools and resulted in the theft of $50 million in funds on multiple blockchains, including Arbitrum (ARB), Optimism (OP), Ethereum (ETH), Polygon (MATIC) and Base.
