$40 Million in cryptocurrency stolen from Coinrail Crypto Exchange

$40 Million in cryptocurrency stolen from Coinrail Crypto ExchangeCoinrail, a crypto exchange based out of South Korea, said on Sunday its platform was hacked with cryptocurrencies that appeared to worth $40 million at the time of the event.
Yet, a blog post published by Pundi X on Sunday hinted that the alleged hacker may have stolen 1,927 ETH, 2.6 billion NPXS, 93 million ATX, 831 million DENT coins as well as six other alt-coins also in significant amounts.
These assets in total worth around $40 million at the time of the hack and have since then dropped to $30 million as of press time, according to data from CoinMarketCap.
Pundi X’s article suggested that following the hack, Coinrail has alerted the project on Sunday an ethereum address which is believed by Coinrail to be associated with the alleged hacker.
Coinrail and Pundi X claimed that IDEX has frozen the assets sent from Fake_Phishing1432 upon investigation, as such the NPXS tokens are not liquidated.
