Hackers have siphoned $611 million worth of cryptocurrencies from a blockchain-based financial network in what’s believed to be one of the largest heists targeting the digital asset industry, putting it ahead of breaches targeting exchanges Coincheck and Mt. Gox in recent years.
Poly Network, a China-based cross-chain decentralized finance (DeFi) platform for swapping tokens across multiple blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, on Tuesday disclosed unidentified actors had exploited a vulnerability in its system to plunder thousands of digital tokens such as Ether.
“The hacker exploited a vulnerability between contract calls,” Poly Network said.

Following a second exploit in 9 days, over 14 tokens listed on the ChainSwap bridge have plunged 99%. The company insists: funds from individual wallets are safe.
ChainSwap, a cross-chain asset bridge and application smart chain, has become the latest victim of the increasingly worrying exploits happening in the DeFi ecosystem that has caused the sector to lose hundreds of millions of dollars since the start of the year.
What is ChainSwap?
As a hub for smart chains, the ChainSwap protocol acts as a defi bridge for projects and users to seamlessly move assets between different blockchains like Ethereum (ERC20), Binance Smart Chain (BSC), and Huobi’s ECO Chain.
The fossil fuel power plant that a private equity firm revived to mine bitcoin is at it again. Not content to just pollute the atmosphere in pursuit of a volatile crypto asset with little real-world utility, this experiment in free marketeering is also dumping tens of millions of gallons of hot water into glacial Seneca Lake in upstate New York.
“The lake is so warm you feel like you’re in a hot tub,” Abi Buddington, who lives near the Greenidge power plant, told NBC News.
Neil Patrick Harris is the latest celebrity to express love and enthusiasm for bitcoin. So much so that he is now serving as the new spokesperson for Coin Flip, a leading crypto ATM firm.
Neil Patrick Harris Is a Big Crypto Fan
Harris is well known for playing lead roles in television programs such as “How I Met Your Mother” and “Doogie Howser, M.D.” However, what many do not know about the young star is that he is an avid crypto trader and investor. He entered the bitcoin space relatively early and has spent the last few years watching his investment grow into something he never thought possible.

The story of humanity is progress, from the origins of humanity with slow disjointed progress to the agricultural revolution with linear progress and furthermore to the industrial revolution with exponential almost unfathomable progress.
This accelerating rate of change of progress is due to the compounding effect of technology, in which it enables countless more from 3D printing, autonomous vehicles, blockchain, batteries, remote surgeries, virtual and augmented reality, robotics – the list can go on and on. These devices in turn will lead to mass changes in society from energy generation, monetary systems, space colonization, automation and much more!
This trajectory of progress is now leading us into a time period that is, “characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres”, called by many the technological revolution or the 4th industrial revolution — in which everything will change, from the underlying structure and fundamental institutions of society to how we live our day-to-day lives.
