AscendEX, the Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange, has suspended crypto withdrawals on its exchange. AscendEX, formerly known as BitMax, had its hot wallet hacked and $77.7 million worth of tokens based on Ethereum, Polygon, and Binance Smart Chain (BSC) transferred out.
Hackers stole $135 million from users of the blockchain gaming company VulcanForge. The hack was carried out by accessing the private keys of 96 accounts and siphoning out 4.5 million PYR, the gaming platform's native token.
Solana suffered a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack but appeared to remain online throughout. The network had faced a similar issue in September when it was out for about 17 hours due to mass botting activity for an initial DEX offering (IDO) on Solana-based decentralized exchange platform Raydium.
