The drama with the PolyNetwork hack continues to unfold as the attacker has started to refund the money.
After saying he was prepared to refund the stolen funds from the infamous $610 million hack, the perpetrator has made the first transaction worth $1 million in USDC.
CryptoPotato reported earlier on August 11th that the unknown hacker, who breached PolyNetwork’s security and stole over $600 million in various digital assets, had decided to return the funds.
This came after dabbling with the idea of creating a new token and allowing the DAO to decide what to do with the substantial amount stolen.
Now, though, the hacker has stayed true to his word and has completed a transaction worth $1 million in USDC from his marked address to PolyNetwork’s wallet.
The team behind the DeFi project confirmed receiving the amount in a separate message. It reads:
“You are moving things to the right direction. We received 1+M USDC on Polygon. Did you ask us to encrypt the receiving addresses with your BookKeeper public key?”
