On July 6th, Multichain experienced a major setback when a significant amount of assets, estimated to be worth $125 million, were illicitly transferred to different wallets. The most affected asset was the Fantom bridge, which lost around $122 million of wBTC, USDC, USDT and other altcoins.

In light of these events, Multichain recommended users to suspend all activities on its protocol and revoke any contract approvals related to it, pending the conclusion of the investigation and a comprehensive explanation.

Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao, the CEO of Binance, used Twitter to inform his followers that the digital asset service provider was unaffected by the attack, and that all funds were safe. He also confirmed that Binance had already swapped assets and stopped accepting deposits from Multichain prior to the incident.
