CoinEx, a crypto exchange, fell victim to a significant hack on September 12, resulting in an estimated loss of $54 million. In response, the exchange initiated the transfer of its remaining crypto assets from its hot wallet to a secure cold wallet.
Presently, the cold wallet holds approximately $89 million in assets, including $51.7 million in ETH and $18.23 million in USDT.
