CoinDash is an operating system for crypto assets, which aims to make handling and trading easy and accessible. CoinDash’s marketplace is built around opportunity discovery and streamlined trading UX with features like real-time social trading signals, ICO dashboard, trending assets, real-time market price tables and 3rd party integration.
In July 2017 we have reported that CoinDash Token Sale received $6.4 Million from early contributors and whitelist participants, but, unfortunately, $7 Million were stolen during the hacker attack. As the time went, CoinDash launched an internet forensic investigation to determine who was behind the hack, but the identity of the hacker was never revealed.
Anyway, in late September of 2017, CoinDash claimed that hackers returned part of the funds stolen in July. In total, CoinDash got back 10,000 ETH, which was about $ 2.9 million at that time.
More than half a year passed from the time when hackers attacked CoinDash, and on February 23, 2018, it was revealed that 20,000 ETH were sent from the hacker address back to CoinDash.
Similar to the hack itself, the hacker’s actions will not prevent us from the realizing our vision, CoinDash product launch will take place next week as originally intended.
CoinDash reported that the Counter Cyber Terrorist Unit in Israel was notified about the hacker's actions and the hacker’s Ethereum address will continue to be tracked and monitored for any suspicious activity.
It still remains unclear why the hacker who had managed to steal such a notorious amount of money, has suddently decided to return the funds back to CoinDash address.
