Welcome to One Click Crypto’s (1CC) newsletter.

Last week was one the worst in the history of Web3. Described as the Lehman Brothers moment in crypto, the FTX collapse initiated another domino-like effect in the industry.

In these difficult times, it is important to distinguish facts from speculations in order to prevent any unnecessary FUD. Still, the upcoming weeks will put DeFi to the test, so be prepared for increased volatility, shocking reveals, and further conspiring.

FTX Investigating a Possible $477M Hack.

Only 24 hours after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the United States, FTX’s wallets were emptied of more than $515M in Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain (BSC), and Avalanche tokens.

$477M is alleged to have been stolen, while the rest is thought to have been transferred into secure storage by FTX.

The Chief Security Officer of Kraken, Nick Percoco, then lit up Twitter with a quick tweet implying that they knew the identity of the guy who conducted this transaction, which, judging by their answer, Ryne Miller did not, implying that this was indeed part of the exploit.

Crypto Exchanges Promise to Publish Proof of Reserves

In the aftermath of FTX’s multibillion-dollar collapse, cryptocurrency companies are scrambling to reassure users and put as much space between themselves and the corporation as possible.

Binance, Crypto.com, OKX, and Derebit have all vowed to produce proof that they have enough reserves to cover their clients’ liabilities.

Coinbase has also taken steps to differentiate itself from FTX, apparently emailing consumers recently to emphasize how its “business is distinct and ultimately better safeguards” client accounts and assets.

Final word

In just five days, the second-largest crypto exchange went from $10B to $0, demonstrating that no one is too big to fail.

Moving forward, the mission is to rebuild crypto and prevent these mistakes from repeating in the future. Centralized exchanges took the first step by taking responsibility for providing proof or reserves and promised to be more transparent from now on.

Due to raised concerns around using API for crypto trading, we remind you to take the best security measures to prevent any associated risk.
