The operator, Sky Mavis says it’s working with law enforcement to recover 173,600 Ethereum (currently worth around $600 million) and 25.5 million USDC from the culprit, who withdrew it from the network on March 23rd. Although this breach isn’t related to healthcare data, the healthcare web 3 industry should take note of the security failures that allowed the hacker to steal such a large sum of money. Moral of the story - Decentralization matters for network security. Having more nodes on the network may have made it more difficult to full gain access. Also, it highlights the reliance on law enforcement for helping to track down the hacker. **Health Unchained Links** Website: healthunchained.org Telegram: t.me/healthunchained Twitter: twitter.com/Healthunchaind
