Yesterday, the crypto world was shocked by an incident. HECO Chain fell victim to an attack, resulting in the theft of $86.6 million worth of crypto assets. Today, a new development has emerged, as the hacker started moving their Ethereum. What’s more, the transferred amounts indicate a significant milestone in hacking history.
HECO Chain Hacker Transfers Ethereum
Surprisingly, the HECO Chain hacker made transfers containing 11.22 ETH, 1,122 ETH, 11,220 ETH, and 11,221.122 ETH to four newly created addresses. This unexpected activity raises questions about the reason behind these transactions and whether they carry a hidden message or commemoration related to the selected numbers.
The intriguing aspect of these transfers lies in the numerical sequence “1, 1, 2, 2.” Speculations have arisen regarding whether these specific numbers hold symbolic meaning, possibly related to the date of the initial attack or conveying an encrypted message.
The crypto community is currently engaged in discussions and debates, attempting to unravel the potential significance of this numerical pattern and its connection to the Heco Bridge attack. While analysts investigate this mystery, the crypto world eagerly awaits insights into the intentions behind these unusual transactions.
Meaning Behind the Numbers
As previously mentioned, the numbers in the transactions are indeed attention-grabbing. Each transaction emphasizes a reference to the date of the hack. The numbers are adorned with 22 to represent the day and 11 to represent the month, adding significance to November 22. The hacker has clearly delivered a message.
Yesterday, following the attack, an important statement was issued by Justin Sun. The announcement acknowledged the attack and assured the recovery of lost funds. It was also noted that transactions were suspended.
The hacker’s message during the transactions revealed an interesting detail. The attack carried out yesterday marks the fourth attack targeting projects associated with Justin Sun. Previous attacks targeted HTX, HuobiWallet, and Poloniex, requiring Justin Sun to make statements in each case.
These numerous attacks raise two important questions. Is there a serious security issue on these platforms? And, is someone specifically targeting TRON founder Justin Sun? We will better understand the answers to these questions in the coming days.
