The hacker used 1inch to swap out these stolen currencies and used a secondary address to deposit in Tornado Cash, a private mixer, to make tracking difficult.

Initially, Bitmart assured that nothing of the sort had happened, reporting the event to be fake news.

But later, CEP Sheldon Xia confirmed the news, and that the exchange is suffering from a security breach.

The sheer amount of loss that the exchange has to endure makes it one of the devastating centralized crypto-exchange hacks in history.
