DragonEx, a cryptocurrency exchange platform that claims to be “a safe and stable platform for Bitcoin and ETH transactions,” is in the news after it announced via their official Telegram channel that its platform had been compromised. The announcement stated that the exchange lost control of its users’ cryptocurrency assets. However, the exchange did not elaborate on the exact amount of loss incurred by DragonEx.
An admin of the channel, Joanne Long stated that the team had tracked down the addresses the stolen funds were transferred to. Based on the data collected, they ascertained that the assets lost during the hack included Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], NEM [XEM], EOS, XRP, Ethereum Classic [ETC], NEO, ABBC, Litecoin [LTC], Bitcoin Cash [BCHABC], Stellar [XLM], Monero [XMR], Cardano [ADA], Ontology [ONT], Tron [TRX], Bytom [BTM], Asch [XAS], Icon [ICX], Qtum, and Tether [USDT].
These coins were then transferred to leading exchanges such as Binance, Bittrex, and Huobi. As of press time, the coins transferred from the above addresses were frozen on Huobi and Gate.io.
