A blockchain project, Everscale, announced that a significant amount of their EVER tokens were stolen.
To address this issue, they temporarily shut down the Octus Bridge, a tool that connects different blockchains. They are also coordinating with various cryptocurrency exchanges to prevent more tokens from leaving the ecosystem.
Everscale’s team is investigating and urges users not to panic. Due to this incident, the price of EVER tokens dropped by over 20% in the last 24 hours.
This theft highlights the risk of digital assets, emphasizing the need for stronger security measures in the blockchain sector.
