Crypto hacker offered bounty after $ 600 million

A hacker who stole just over $ 600 million (£ 433 million) in cryptocurrency was offered $ 500,000 and immunity as a reward for returning the money.

Poly Network made the controversial offer after the hacker promised to return the money. The attack was discovered Tuesday when Poly Network publicly pleaded with the hacker for help. A former FBI official said that “private companies do not have the authority to promise immunity from criminal prosecution. The attack is one of the largest piracy heists in history. Poly Network said the person had exploited a vulnerability in their system. Most of the money has already been returned, although the hacker says that he is not interested in the reward.

Shortly after the attack, the anonymous individual posted notes on the publicly available blockchain mocking the company and asking for advice on how to launder his stolen wealth. Subsequently, the offender claimed “not to be interested in the money” and promised to return everything.
