According to a statement published on the night of Sunday by project representatives in the official group in Telegram, as a result of breaking into the wallet for exchanging FSN tokens in ERC-20 format for tokens of the project’s own network, a total of 10 million FSN coins of the main Fusion network and 3.5 million were stolen Ethereum-based FSN tokens.
