The company called talks for a solution
Hackers have committed the biggest theft in the history of cryptocurrency and the team at Poly Network has resorted to negotiations to return the full amount of the loot to the hackers. Poly Network said the loot amount was the biggest theft in the history of decentralized finance and would be considered a serious economic offense in any country in the world. Poly Network said that hackers stole money from thousands of members of the crypto community. Poly Networks has asked hackers to find solutions through communication.
