Hack through vulnerability in the log
Crypto exchanges can be roughly divided into two categories: centralized exchanges such as Binance or Bitfinex, in which the operators usually hold the private keys to the users’ coins, and decentralized exchanges, in which the traders control their private keys themselves.Bisq is a DEX that allows users to trade completely anonymously, which has become less common in times of increasingly strict anti-money laundering requirements. The hack affected the crypto exchange’s trade log, which was last updated in October 2019.
