The achilles heel of the blockchain ecosystem

Private Keys is the main attack vector in the Blockchain Ecosystem

Hackers were able to drain $196 million of crypto from crypto exchange BitMart by stealing a private key that opened two hot wallets, BitMart CEO Sheldon Xia tweeted

Japanese exchange Bitpoint was hit by hackers on July 12. An estimated $28 million of BTC, XRP, ETH, BCH, and LTC were stolen-about 75% of which belonged to Bitpoint customers. The exchange said unauthorized access to the private keys of its hot wallets facilitated the theft.

The attacker who hacked more than $600 million from the China-based Poly Network platform has released the private key for the remaining $141 million of the stolen cryptocurrency

Bitfinex utilized BitGo software as part of its security solution even as at the time of the attack. The bitcoin exchange lost nearly $70 million worth of bitcoin to hackers. BitGo was not itself hacked, but processed withdrawal requests from the hacker, who had obtained access to Bitfinex's keys

Approximately 20% of all Bitcoins are lost due to lost private keys, which represents a range of between 68,110 and 92,855 Bitcoin that are recoverable — or between $3.6 and $4.2 billion
