In January, hackers hacked into Cryptopia’s New Zealand site for $3.5 million. In March, Singapore’s DragonEx ($6 million) and South Korea’s Bithumb ($19 million) suffered from cyber-attacks.

The May break-in of Binance cost 7,000 BTC ($40.5 million) in the Bitcoin exchange. This was followed by successful hacker attacks on Singapore’s Bitrue ($4.3 million) and Japan’s BitPoint ($32 million).

The total amount of damage from the hacking of cryptocurrency exchanges for the entire time reached $1.39 billion.

As a reminder, last year the attack on the Japanese Coincheck exchange alone brought hackers more than $530 million in XEM tokens.
