The team claims it “enacted safeguards to ensure that no additional LMT could be stolen by the hackers” while they have also “temporarily removed” LMT from liquidity pools “in order to minimize disruption to token prices following the hack.”
Lympo stressed that the majority of the LMT reserve is secure in a cold wallet storage.
The attack is still being investigated and the team said they are preparing “a comprehensive plan on how the effects of this attack will be remediated.” The plan should be announced “as soon as it’s available.”
