Exploited Cross-Chain Protocol Nomad Offers Hackers 10% To Return Stolen $190 Million

Cross-chain protocol Nomad has released a statement addressed to hackers. The protocol claims that those who return at least 90% of the total funds they stole during the recent $190 million free-for-all hack will be considered for a bounty of as much as 10%.

Nomad Announces 10% Bounty on Returned Funds

On Tuesday, August 2nd, Nomad fell victim to one of the biggest crypto hacks of the year when more than $190 million was stolen due to a flaw in the protocol’s code which allowed anyone to submit illicit transactions and withdraw funds they didn’t own.

In a public plea, the Nomad team announced a 10% bounty for the return of stolen funds from the Nomad bridge. For this purpose, Nomad has created a recovery wallet address in collaboration with custodian bank Anchorage Digital.

In an official statement, Pranay Mohan, the Co-Founder and CEO of Nomad, commented: “The most important thing in crypto is community, and our number one goal is restoring bridged user funds.”

Nomad Recovers Over $21 Million of the Stolen Funds 

Despite it falling victim to the gargantuan hack, concerned Nomad community members began working with the protocol to safeguard as much of the remaining funds as possible.

These “White hat friends”, as the protocol called them, have managed to secure the return of over $21 million of the stolen funds to the Nomad recovery wallet.

On the Flipside

Following the hack on the Nomad bridge, the Cardano community, including Twitter user “ADA Whale”, has complained that many Cardano users have been indirectly affected by the attack.
