FTX Says It Has Been Hacked As 3,000,000 In Crypto Seem To Exit Crumbling Exchange

Crumbling crypto exchange FTX says it has been hacked.

After a flood of users began reporting sudden $0 balances and traders tracked millions of dollars appearing to leave the exchange, FTX General Counsel Ryne Miller released a statement on the company’s Telegram channel.

“FTX has been hacked. Chat is open. Do not go to the FTX website as it may download trojans. Note that some funds were obtained.”

Miller also released one statement on Twitter.

“Investigation of wallet movement abnormalities related to consolidation of ftx balances across exchanges – obscure facts that other movements do not clear. Will share more information as soon as we have it.”

So far, chain analyst ZachXBT has pegged the amount of crypto on the move at $383 million.

ZachXBT also says that stablecoin issuer Tether has blacklisted portions of USDT related to the address involved in the transfers, which Etherscan has now labeled as “FTX Accounts Drainer.”

FTX also tells users that all their apps are infected with malware.

“FTX apps are malware. Delete them. Chat is open. Do not go to FTX website as it may download trojans.”

At the time of publication, users are also reporting an inability to log into the online version of FTX.
