Another CEX rekt, but they have yet to admit it. ~$33.7M taken, hundreds of users affected, and Crypto.com are still claiming that "funds are safe".
Four cases in ten days. $140M gone from Vulcan Forged. "Compromised keys" are so hot right now.
Is CeFi any safer than DeFi? If not, why use it? BitMart has lost $196M, placing it at number 2 on our leaderboard. Will they commit to refunding their users?
