Since 2011, there have been dozens of exchange hackings, resulting in the equivalent of billions of US dollars worth of stolen assets. In May 2019, Binance, one of the world’s largest crypto exchanges was notoriously hacked, resulting in a loss of 7,000 Bitcoin, worth in the region of $40 million at the time. It was a shocking development and served as a stark reminder to both current and prospective investors that even the industry’s largest players are not impervious to masterfully orchestrated attacks.
