With great support from our partners of the industry, another $64 million in assets are now out of the control of the suspicious addresses, bringing the total value to $204 million since KuCoin is coming back to fully functional. My team and I will continue to do our best to offset the impact of the incident.
As of now, a total of 31 tokens have opened deposit & withdrawal services, and more tokens including $BTC, $ETH, and $USDT will follow. After the hack, crypto projects worked to freeze or render useless most of the assets. Many teams updated their blockchain to make this happen.”
