BlockThreat - Week 45, 2020

Silk Road | BSV | Grin | Ledger | Huobi | Ethereum

This week marks the largest forfeiture of cryptocurrency assets in history with ~$1B worth of bitcoin stolen from Silk Road voluntarily returned to IRS. Grin network came under 51% attack with hash capacity likely rented on Nicehash, BSV P2PKH multi-sig wallet implementation exploited to steal funds, Ethereum had an ETHash bug, and more of the usual DeFi shenanigans in this week’s edition of Blockchain Threat Intelligence.
