Bitfinex offers 6000 BTC bounty in bid to recover stolen bitcoins

posted almost 6 years ago
Bitfinex is reportedly offering a reward worth up to $3.6m for the recovery of bitcoins stolen from its exchange last week.

The Hong Kong-based startup lost nearly 120,000 BTC in the incident, and now suggests it's willing to offer 5% of these funds (or about 6,000 BTC) as a reward should they be found and returned.

The news came social media today in a post by Bitfinex community director Zane Tackett. In response to a question about the existence of such a program, he stated that a bounty would be awarded to anyone who had information that helped the exchange recover the funds.
