The price of the Fusion token (FSN) has more than doubled since the developers of the financial blockchain platform Fusion Network announced that they had hacked their wallet. This is written by Decrypt.

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.

According to CoinMarketCap, this is about 38% of the current cryptocurrency offer. The amount of stolen funds at the time of the hack was estimated at about $ 6.4 million.

After it was stole, we found the [thief] kept moving those stolen FSN in order to wash the address holding FSN, and sent part of the them to exchanges to sell.

According to him, the tokens remaining in the wallet were transferred to a safe cold storage, and the project representatives also contacted a number of large exchanges, where the stolen tokens allegedly went, including OKEx, Huobi and Bitmax.

DJ Qian also suggested that an attacker could be a person who had access to the private keys of a hacked wallet, noting that the evidence is enough to file a corresponding statement with the police.

Fusion Network is declared as a financial blockchain platform, offering users the ability to quickly and easily exchange cryptocurrency assets and create financial applications.

Telegram is ready to postpone the launch of the Telegram Open Network (TON) blockchain platform and suspend all operations with the Gram digital currency. At the same time, the company intends to challenge the lawsuit of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The lawyers of Telegram notified the court of the Southern District of New York.

We had intended to launch the TON network in late October. However, the recent SEC lawsuit has made that timing unachievable. We disagree with the SEC’s legal position and intend to vigorously defend the lawsuit. We are proposing to extend the deadline date in order to provide additional time to resolve the SEC’s lawsuit and work with other governmental authorities in advance of the launch of the TON network.

At the same time, CoinDesk reports that the project investors received a letter with information about the proposed transfer of the TON launch from late October to April 30 next year.

At the same time, the company must approve the decision on the transfer with investors. Each of the groups of investors who bought Gram tokens during two rounds of ICO will have to approve it separately.

Investors of the second round are invited to fill out the appropriate form before October 23. If the majority refuses to sign, they will be returned “about 77%” of the investment. It is reported that investors of the first round received a separate letter.

In the event that the majority still approves the launch transfer, Telegram plans to send another $ 80 million for the development of TON.
