Following a recent security compromise, Crypto.com, the sector’s fourth-largest cryptocurrency exchange, admits it lost consumer assets. As a result of the incident, 483 people were directly affected. This resulted in unlawful withdrawals of 4,836.26 Ethereum, 443.93 Bitcoin, and nearly $66,200 in other digital currencies, or approximately $33.84 million at the present rate.
Crypto.com quickly halted withdrawals after discovering that a piece of the protection layers had been breached. They also repaired the problem, and were back up and running in around 13 to 14 hours.
In related news, Crypto.com has launched the Worldwide Account Protection Program (WAPP). Its purpose is to protect the funds of users in certain situations. One of these is where a third party acquires an unlawful login to their account and withdraws assets without the user’s consent. WAPP allows for the restoration of funds up to $250,000.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will be more scrutinizing cryptocurrency exchanges, as per SEC chair Gary Gensler, as reported by Bloomberg.
He had directed staff to look into every option for bringing these sites into the scope of investor protection. This year will be another year where consumers are not protected. This is if the markets do not join the regulated sector, the SEC head allegedly remarked in a video conference.
Certain Twitter users will be able to transfer NFTs from their cryptocurrency wallets. They will use them as profile images on the popular social media platform, according to a recent announcement.
