European Cryptocurrency Exchange Hacked!

Slovakia based cryptocurrency exchange Eterbase fell victim to a hacking attack according to their own Twitter account. Cryptocurrencies worth an approximate $5 Million were allegedly stolen from the hot wallets.

In another tweet, Eterbase announced that they’re closely cooperating with law enforcement forces to solve the case. The exchange further promised to do everything in its power to make sure the customer’s funds aren’t affected by the security breach.

Eterbase announced over Twitter that six of its addresses where affecte by the hack. The addresses are tied to Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH/ERC-20 tokens), XRP, Tron (TRX), Tezos (XTZ) and Algorand (ALGO).

The $5 Million number doesn’t come from Eterbase’s Twitter account itself, but from the research of online news site The Block, which inspected the addresses on their blockchains.
