Mixin Network, an open-source, peer-to-peer transactional network for digital assets, has announced today on Twitter that deposits and withdrawals are suspended effective immediately due to a $200 million hack the platform suffered on Saturday.
The incident occurred on September 23 early in the morning, Hong Kong time, and the attack reportedly targeted the database of Mixin’s cloud service provider.
Due to the substantial amount lost in the hack, the situation has seriously troubled the platform's users.
Mixin has stated that they would take action to address the problems caused by the loss of assets but any solutions would be announced at a later time.
Mixin’s founder, Feng Xiaodong, will give more explanations about the incident via a public address scheduled for later today.
Blockchain trackers like PeckShield and Lookonchain have identified roughly $141 million of the stolen assets, analyzed as $93.5M in ETH, $23.5M in DAI (swapped from USDT), and $23.3M in BTC.
