The hacker who stole 20 million OP coins returned the vast majority of the stolen funds.

Public blockchain data shows that it made 17 transfers, each carrying 1 million OP.

according to “EtherscanAll 17 of the OP’s transfers were made in a short time.

The first transaction was on Friday at 12:09 PM UTC, and the last transaction was at 12:31 PM UTC on the same day.

This closed the cryptocurrency away from either party.

An opportunistic attacker stole the coins soon after and sold around 1 million OP coins in a short time.

Interestingly, he then sent about a million OP to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, and delegated voting rights for those cryptocurrencies to Yoav Weiss of the Ethereum Foundation.

The next day, the unknown thief sent a million OP to Vitalik expressing his respect for him.
