ALPEX is the preferred digital asset trading platform for millions of users worldwide and the first choice for both professional and first-time traders in over 150 countries.

Weekly Overview:
The most unexpected and unpredictable thing happened last week. It appears that the hacker who penetrated Poly Network’s crypto infrastructure stole coins just “for fun “ and has now returned the stolen coins. The hacker also said that the tokens had been moved to his wallets to “keep them safe.” It is
believed that since it wasn’t possible to keep the coins, the hacker returned the coins. The global crypto community blocked all of his wallets. No coins were transferred to the hacker’s safe wallets despite his attempts. Obviously, he did not do it “for fun”. The Crypto community demonstrated its strength.

The hackers, who stole about $610 million, first returned nearly half of that amount in one of the largest cryptocurrency thefts ever. The cybercriminals exploited a weakness in Poly Network, a platform that connects different blockchains so that they can work together.

On Tuesday, the company revealed the hack and asked for communication with the hackers, urging them to “return the hacked assets.” In a bizarre turn of events, the hacker returned the stolen funds, claiming again that he stole the funds “for fun”. The message was embedded in a cryptocurrency transaction, saying that the funds were “ready to be returned”. The DeFi platform responded by requesting the money be sent to three crypto addresses.

ALPEX community was shocked at the news of the colossal attack on the Poly Network’s cross-chain DeFi platform. Our team kept the ALPEX community updated in real time about this unfortunate event all the way to its “happy ending”. This hack reminded us once again that security is the key to any crypto platform. In order to secure the investor’s funds, we will continue tirelessly to develop security on the ALPEX exchange.

In other news, on Wednesday, Lionel Messi said he wanted to lead Paris St Germain to their first Champions League title, putting behind him the tearful farewell he said to Barcelona after signing a two- year contract with the French soccer giant. After Barcelona, where Messi has begun and always dreamed of playing out the rest of his career, conceded that they could no longer afford him, Messi joined PSG as a free agent.

PSG fans packed the Parc des Princes stadium, believing their club would now win the Champions League after hoovering up domestic titles since free-spending owners Qatar Sports Investment European arrived in 2011. Despite having won four Champions League titles with Barcelona, Messi said he lacked the appetite for more. As a result of this development, PSG fans’ crypto tokens have rallied in value. In Jan. 2020, PSG created the $PSG token with crypto platform to help build a new fan community.

Meanwhile, according to CoinShares data, Ethereum, the token used in the Ethereum blockchain, also saw $2.8 million in outflows, down from nearly $9 million the previous week. Ethereum recently underwent a major software upgrade aimed at stabilizing transaction fees and reducing the supply of the
ether token. Through a process called “burning,” which involves sending tokens to special addresses with untraceable private keys, the supply of Ether is being dwindled.

Are you passionate about coffee? If so, a new cryptocurrency is making waves in the commodities and financial markets. After its launch in early July, Coffee Coin has made an impressive start. The project is attracting growers, producers, and traders of coffee in Brazil, the world’s largest producer. The Money Control website discusses this unusual cryptocurrency.

Lastly, The cryptocurrency market was in the red on August 13. Global cryptocurrency market cap was $1.88 trillion, a decrease of 3.02 percent over the last day, whereas crypto market volume was $117.43 billion, a decrease of 9.26 percent. There is now a total volume of $92.47 billion in stable coins — 78.75 percent of the total 24-hour crypto market volume.

Marketing Summary:
In marketing news: During attacks on Poly Network and O3 Swap, funds worth more than US$610 million were stolen. In one fell swoop, it became the largest crypto crime in history. After being surrounded by security forces, hackers promised to return their stolen funds. So far, about half of the
funds have been returned. It is likely that hackers will target DeFi’s security due to the “super privileges” retained in the code by the project executor, demonstrating that DeFi security depends not only on technology but also on credibility.

Although centralized exchanges have received huge amounts of funding, there is still a lot of room for market expansion in areas with underdeveloped finances. CoinDCX, an Indian cryptocurrency exchange, received an investment of US$90 million, while Pintu, an Indonesian cryptocurrency exchange, received an investment of US$35 million. These areas lack traditional financial infrastructure but are populated, and financial demand is high. Economies such as banks and credit cards can easily pass directly into the era of crypto finance.

In an update from the marketing department, ALPEX moved into a new office as a result of rapid growth. Besides creating a broadened working environment, we’re also recruiting more talents.

ALPEX has released social media questionnaires for Twitter, Instagram, and other major social media channels. There is an opportunity for users to vote. By doing so, we aim to understand the psychological activities of our users better and improve the services we provide.
