6.Hot Topic of the Week: Binance was attacked by hackers, and the SYS coin increased in price by 3.2 million times

At about 4:18 am on July 4, 2018, some Binance users reported that the SYS transactions displayed abnormal trading behavior. At about 4:30 am, the price of SYS/BTC on Binance was increased to around 1SYS=96BTC, which was the highest price of SYS. The previous price of SYS was about 0.00003BTC. The price was increased 3.2 million times. Binance issued an announcement at 8:00 am on July 4th: announced temporary maintenance, suspension of trading and withdrawal.

On the evening of July 4, Binance issued an announcement stating that the incident was due to some API users. The API is an interface that can perform automated transactions. By controlling the API interface, the hacker manipulated the user’s account trading, thereby manipulating the price. The purpose of the hacker was not to steal the BTC from the Binance platform. Instead, their purpose was to increase the price of a coin, and then sell it at a high price on other trading platforms for profits.

It can be seen that the 24-hour volume of SYS has surged since the early morning of July 4. On trading platforms other than Binance, SYS’s trading volume reached hundreds of million dollars, and hackers were very likely to buy SYS ahead of these trading platforms, waiting for the opportunity to sell at a high price.

  • Binance’s plan for this abnormal trading event is as follows:
    • Binance deleted all API records and users can recreate and keep their API KEYs. Transactions that involved abnormality were rolled back.
    • Transactions that involved active participation from users who experienced great loss will be exempt from handling fees from 2018/07/05 to 2018/07/14.
    • The Binance Investor Protection Fund (SAFU) was established. From 2018/07/14, 10% of the transaction fees will be used as the investor protection fund, and the platform will pay the users first.

The issue Binance experienced has always been one of the most concerned topics for the users of the blockchain space. As the global transaction scale of digital assets continues to expand, the risk of hacker-attacks on cryptocurrency trading platforms are also increasing, and the current security incidents are frequent. The trading platforms must prevent hacker-attack and ensure the security of user assets through a series of risk control measures and security systems. Strengthening transaction security should be the primary task of cryptocurrency trading platforms and should be an important goal for the long-term development of the blockchain industry.
