The aftermath of the Poly Network hack has seen hackers successfully exchanging stolen assets worth over $4.39 million on various crypto platforms, reports crypto intelligence portal SlowMist. According to the latest update, these ill-gotten gains have been funneled through exchanges such as KuCoin, FixedFloat, ChangeNOW and Tornado Cash.

The hackers' audacious spree did not stop there, as they proceeded to swap some of the stolen tokens, including sUSD, RFuel, COOK and others, for mainstream assets valued at a staggering $1.22 million via Uniswap and PancakeSwap. However, it appears that the stolen funds have not yet been fully moved, as they have been dispersed to more than 60 addresses across multiple chains.

This is the second time the protocol has been breached. On the day of the attack, the hackers unleashed an avalanche of coins minting across various networks, most notably 999 trillion Shiba Inu (SHIB) on the Heco network alone. This audacious move artificially inflated assets by $4.2 billion.

No reason to worry?

Despite the massive figures involved, Yu Xian, the founder of SlowMist, offered some reassurance to the affected parties. He stated that a significant portion of the assets stolen by the hackers is merely "air" and should not be regarded as real assets. This statement aims to allay fears that the hackers' actions could have far-reaching consequences.
