Cryptocurrency monitoring service “Whale Alert” has recorded the following transaction:

The above ETH transaction might indeed be a hack: the TX was sent with a gas fee of 1000 gwei (100x the price for a “fast” transaction). This person wanted to be 1000% sure the TX goes through ASAP. No exchange ever sends a TX with this fee.

The exchange have posted the bellow notice on its website:

This is a developing story, we will keep you updated about this alleged security breach.
