Crypto Security Gains Ground: April Sees a 67% Drop in Hack Losses

April marked a significant improvement in cryptocurrency security, witnessing a dramatic 67% reduction in losses from hacks, totaling $60.2 million. This decline, reported by Peckshield, contrasts sharply with the $187.6 million hacked in March and even more so with the previous year's figures. Over the month, there were 40 distinct hacking incidents, highlighting the persistent risks despite the declining losses.

One notable event was the $44.7 million hack on Hedgey Finance due to a contract vulnerability on the Arbitrum Network. Other significant incidents included a $3 million theft from Fixed Float crypto exchange and a $2.67 million hack at Grand Base. These events underscore the ongoing challenges in securing crypto assets, despite the overall downward trend in hacking damages.

This year, the cumulative losses from crypto-related crimes stand at over $401 million, marking a 25.1% decrease from the same period in 2023, as per Immunefi. This ongoing effort to bolster security is pivotal as the industry aims to restore trust and facilitate broader adoption.
