Chicago-based Stoltmann Law Offices is representing investors who’ve been victims of cryptocurrency thefts. These days, cryptocurrencies or “digital cash” are all the rage. You can speculate with it, buy a few consumer goods, and even play games. Unfortunately, like any currency that is a store of value, it can be stolen.
One of the largest heists in the short history of cryptocurrencies occurred recently when customers of Axie Infinity, a play-to-earn online game, lost some $625 million to a thieving hacker.
It was reported that the Axie account was hacked on March 23rd, although it was only revealed on Tuesday, March 29th. According to Yahoo News, “Axie Infinity remains one of the most popular play-to-earn games, and users continued to log on Wednesday after news of the crypto heist. Hackers targeted a vulnerability in the bridge — or a software mechanism for exchanging types of crypto tokens — to drain funds in two separate transactions.”
