Crypto Exchange DragonEx Hacked: ‘Undisclosed Amount’ Stolen, Some Recovered

Singapore based company DragonEx announced Monday on its official Telegram channel that it has recently fallen prey to hacking for a currently unknown amount.

“On March 24th, DragonEx has (sic) encountered attacks from hackers, our users’ crypto assets and Platform crypto assets were transferred and stolen.”

The company has confirmed that some assets have already been recovered.

“We will do our best to retrieve back (sic) the rest of the stolen assets.”

We can expect further details on the attack in about of week but we do know that at least Thailand, Singapore, Estonia, and Hong Kong have been alerted of the attack and DragonEx is working with police on the ongoing investigations.

Earlier today, DragonEx shared wallet addresses as a part of its continuing effort to take responsibility for the hack. The 20 crypto wallets appeared to contain funds that were hacked from the exchange.

There will be more details on the hack coming as quickly as they are made public.

DragonEx had made announcements the days before the hack that they would be doing scheduled maintenance. It makes one wonder whether the hackers exploited this time to steal funds or if they were worried their exploit would be removed in the update so they pushed their timeline.

Here were the announcements from DragonEx:


A DragonEx admin in their Telegram chat sent a message that the following addresses are where the funds were transferred to after being stolen:
