The Biggest Victim Reportedly Lost $2.8 Million USDT From Their Hacked Atomic Wallet
Several consumers pointed fingers at the wallet service when their monies were taken.
Atomic Wallet, a non-custodial decentralized cryptocurrency wallet, claims over five million users are complaining about losing access to their digital assets.
It was later reported that one user lost approximately $3 million in Tether (USDT), while several others lost less than a million dollars worth of cryptocurrency.
The wallet’s developers resorted to Twitter yesterday to inform users that a few had experienced account compromises. Atomic has said they would be doing more investigations; however, there have yet to be any public updates.
Complaints continue to pour beneath the Atomic Twitter post, with some users saying they had previously stolen monies and the wallet provider did nothing to aid them.
ZachXBT, a well-known crypto investigator, has claimed that several Atomic users have contacted him about their missing cash.
The on-chain investigator reported the most significant single loss, 2,800,000 Tether (USDT). Also, ZachXBT said they have seen “multiple other losses” of digital assets across numerous chains totalling six figures.
There have been many major DeFi hacks in the previous few weeks, despite claims that such attacks are on the decrease compared to rug pulls. Last weekend, $7.5 million worth of cryptocurrency was stolen from Jimbo’s liquidity protocol.
