As Coinpedia reported earlier that, KuCoin exchange has been hacked for about $150 million, now the figure have grown to nearly $280 million. The ERC-20 tokens being most targeted in the hack, the hacker chose Uniswap exchange to swap the altcoins to ETH.

However, many of the projects were frozen, forked and blacklisted, but as per the KuCoin exchange claim to refund all the funds is pretty difficult. But the prime focus remains on the ERC-20 tokens which account for nearly half of the total amount.
