Quote
Around 300 of the Bitcoin that were never recovered following a hack of the crypto exchange Bitfinex have moved today. The hack in the summer of 2016 cost the company $73 million at the time.

The coins appear to have been moved to a total of 13 new addresses. It is the first time the coins have ever moved to new wallets, none of which have any previous transaction history.

I guess the hackers waited three years hoping that no-one would notice the movement - but with a public ledger people are always watching.

This is another reminder to people not to leave coins on exchanges. Practically every single exchange out there has been hacked at some point.

you can leave coins on the exchange as long the coins is not too much
usually people leave coins in the exchange just for trading and many people expect a profit from his trading

This is the important role of a technology, with this incident, we can take the lesson that Bitcoin has the nature of technological progress so that all transactions can be tracked so well.

News like this must continue to be revealed because it can thus foster a level of trust for the public towards Bitcoin technology.

This is another reminder to people not to leave coins on exchanges. Practically every single exchange out there has been hacked at some point.

there will come a day when all exchanges will force their customers to make KYC and thieves will have little chance of stealing without being found and arrested by the police. It is very regrettable that a small group of thieves harms a large community... such hack cases destroy the reputation of the crypto world and may move away big investors and create fear in regulators and governments

I was thinking what just caused dump on Bitcoin is the statement of the New York Attorney General who alegged the owner of the Bitfinex crypto exchange for doing illegal transactions of tether to disguise lost funds worth of USD850 millions. However the controversy between Bitfinex and Tether is not a new thing.

I dont even know about the Bitcoin transfers from hacker's wallet to other. As we all know, Blockchain is very transparent about the transaction and that's not a good decision to transfer hacked funds directly to other wallet.

I think it's time some of this exchange companies do something because as of 2015 - 2019 more than 5,000 account has been compromised & hacked.it not a good reputation to btc community, This is giving the entire btc niche a bad name.

Well, i think if, you  are running a website that store more than 10-20 btc per day. there should be a kind of security measure & guarantee to further protect your client's on other end

Yes, i know bitcoin is anonymous does not mean people should be prepared to say goodbye to their hard-earned coin in case of such attack .This ought not to be so because in such situtation, the companies, are simply saying we can't protect you in case of attack or exploitation.

So why are they offering  to store-up this coin if, nobody is prepared to take responsibility for his or her action.

NOte : we are taking about million swept by overnight hacker's!! It not enough to write compelling article's or press release in regard's to such painful experience


Thanks

I guess the hackers waited three years hoping that no-one would notice the movement - but with a public ledger people are always watching.

I wonder why they should wait for three years while the hacker could move it step by step. No matter how long they wait but if they move it in a bunch then it will be easily tracked imho. Just wondering why they did not move it when bitcoin reached its ATH at then end of 2017 as they should have made so huge amount of money.

This is another reminder to people not to leave coins on exchanges. Practically every single exchange out there has been hacked at some point.

Sure, people should aware that storing bitcoin in exchange is always risky especially if it is for long time. Its been suggested many times already, but obviously it is users own right what they want to do with their bitcoin.

Lol! Probably hackers hold it knowing that bull run may going to happen. Yet, it was not happening and instead it is the opposite. It was actually bearish market and that is bad news for them.

However, since bitcoin has a high market volatility theb waiting for some time might be a good idea. Let them wish that they will.never get caught during the transfer and exchange of those stolen bitcoins.

you can leave coins on the exchange as long the coins is not too much
usually people leave coins in the exchange just for trading and many people expect a profit from his trading

but people should be wise storing coins from exchange sometimes they remove those coins if the volume was not that good enough to retain, and also choose a right exchange if you want to store your coins on it make sure that they had a good reputation and can sustain a good volume.

usually people leave coins in the exchange just for trading and many people expect a profit from his trading

yes you are right there is no harm in leaving a coin on the exchange, as long as we keep watching it there will be no problem. and certainly not in large numbers. for those who don't have much free time. they have to leave coins and make orders in the market to sell / buy because otherwise they will be late if the market starts moving.

That's because these exchanges do nothing to help the users recover the money once they get hacked and hence we should abandon these exchanges that don't believe in reimbursing the money. They need to be as secure as banks and infact even more as they get the license to operate and are legal entities and also earn too much from listing coins and from fees. There is no reason why they can't be secure. Just checking the net worth of Binance and it is $1.4 Billion and that of HDFC is $2.4 billion. These exchanges don't even pay interest to customers and hence what's their excuse?

Bitfinex is now being considered a fraudulent exchange and is under investigation. Serves them right.

https://www.newsbtc.com/2019/04/25/hacked-bitcoin-moves-300-of-bitfinex-users-btc-moves-for-the-first-time/

Quote
Around 300 of the Bitcoin that were never recovered following a hack of the crypto exchange Bitfinex have moved today. The hack in the summer of 2016 cost the company $73 million at the time.

The coins appear to have been moved to a total of 13 new addresses. It is the first time the coins have ever moved to new wallets, none of which have any previous transaction history.

I guess the hackers waited three years hoping that no-one would notice the movement - but with a public ledger people are always watching.
But how dos the hacker care about noticing the transfer or the movements of the said amount?because of the anonymity i think he cannot be catched

Agreed,only transfer our coins when we need to trade and must take it again every after trading for our own safeties and for preventing from being part of hacking victims

I wonder why they should wait for three years while the hacker could move it step by step. No matter how long they wait but if they move it in a bunch then it will be easily tracked imho. Just wondering why they did not move it when bitcoin reached its ATH at then end of 2017 as they should have made so huge amount of money.


Immediately after a hack everyone is watching closely, so no point moving the coins. Then after a while people forget and move onto the next thing.

The only reason the move was spotted is because someone on reddit had the address on a watch list and three years on, were still in the crypto space and still watching - and caught the move.

This should be really a warning to people that likes to save or put their investments or crypto currencies on exchanges. I know that these exchanges or trading sites are doing their best to secure your cryptos but we all know how hackers can be so smart and can still get through their securities. I know that it is hard but we should be able to take care of our investments, it is also for our own good.

This explains the $300 or so dump in price overnight.

Could be the reason, hackers would have patiently waited for the market to recover and reach 5400$ before moving the funds they have stolen. That's why I never leave my funds in a trading platform even how safe and secured they say it is. Move your funds to somewhere secured (hardware wallet) as soon as you are done trading.

Do they have to wait up to three years to move the bitcoin to the new address? Why don't they sell bitcoin when it costs $ 20k? I feel there are too many strange things.
And if we now discover addresses that hold hackers' bitcoin. What can we do to prevent hackers from selling that bitcoin into fiat? I really don't feel confident with bitfinex, everything around them is shady.

Now this is where CipherTrace could prove its usefulness into knowing where would the coins end up and link them to a personality or a service. They weren't so smart at all to have waited that long and move it as nothing even changed at all since the transaction is still broadcasted over the whole bitcoin network. I hope bitfinex would watch closely on the development of this case if ever they're really sincere in pursuing justice.
