Hackers Stole More Than $600 Million in Cryptocurrency, Then Gave Some of It Back – WSJ

Poly Network said Wednesday that assets worth around $260 million have been returned.

In a series of lengthy question-and-answer posts about the heist on a blockchain account used to hijack the funds, the purported hacker or hackers claimed that they were always planning to return the funds.

“I am not very interested in money! I know it hurts when people are attacked, but shouldn’t they learn something from those hacks?” one of the posts said. The hacker or hackers said they were negotiating with the Poly Network team and that they “would like to give them tips on how to secure their networks.”
