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?”
