This year, the record for the amount of losses from exploits was in October with $760.2 million. Then, the largest part of the indicator was the damage from the hacking of the BSC Token Hub bridge of the BNB Chain network in which the attackers stole $586 million.
In November, a significant part of the hacking losses came from the incident with the FTX exchange. An unknown person withdrew about $340 million in digital assets from the platform, mainly Bitcoin (25.4%) and Ethereum (68%).
Notably, the Deribit hack earlier this month resulted in losses of $28 million.
