According to him, the developers of the XRP Ledger, who maintain a blockchain using XMPP, identified the hack and asked the exchanges to monitor deposits associated with the attacker's wallets.
"We will continue to support Ripple in their efforts to recover funds, including carefully tracking most of the funds that are still in the attacker's external wallets, in case they are transferred to Binance," Tang wrote on the social network X (Twitter).
On January 30, Ripple Labs CEO Chris Larsen became a victim of hackers who hacked his personal account and withdrew $112 million worth of XRP tokens.
Crypto exchanges have received a notification and a request to freeze receipts from suspicious addresses.
The anomalous movement of tokens from Larsen's wallet was first noticed by a well-known cryptodetector under the pseudonym ZachXBT. According to him, some of the funds were quickly "laundered" through the MEXC crypto exchanges, Gate.io , Binance, Kraken, OKX, HTX, HitBTC and other platforms.
