Hackers have stolen around $570 million in tokens from Binance, in a rare blow to the world’s biggest crypto exchange and another dent to the troubled digital assets industry struggling to regain trust after a collapse in prices.
Binance initially estimated on Friday that tokens worth about $100 million to $110 million had been taken, pausing the operation of the affected blockchain for approximately eight hours.
However, the exchange later disclosed that the hacker had taken around 2 million of the cryptocurrency BNB, Binance’s own digital token, with a value of around $284 each. The hack targeted BSC Token Hub, a bridge between two Binance systems.
