The CEO of the Fusion Foundation, DJ Qian, informed the Fusion users about the Fusion network hack on Telegram that one-third of the FSN coins in circulation were gone since one of the wallets was hacked.
The news was announced at 6.34 pm EST on the telegram’s FSN group by the CEO that one of the Ethereum address that was used to swap the ERC-20 Fusion tokens for tokens on the Fusion mainnet was hacked. The CEO also informed that “After it was stolen, we found the [thief] kept moving those stolen FSN to wash the address holding FSN, and sent part of them to exchanges to sell,”
He further said that the leftover tokens were moved to cold storages and other major exchanges that include OKEx, Huobi and Bitmax and were safe for now. And he also confirmed that Fusion was developing a program that would track and trace the stolen and lost FSN’s.
Qian believes that the person responsible has the private keys to access the foundation and said that the team has strong evidence for the same to contact the police.
