As blockchain and its byproducts debuted in the market, bad actors and hackers entered the market from the back gate. In the past few years, the hackers have troubled cryptocurrency and Web3 firms, stealing Billions of dollars.

Immunefi, a security and blockchain analysis firm, notes that the losses to Web3 hacks and scams slipped 23% in Q1 2024 compared to 2023. The report further details that the total amount lost in Q1 2024 is $336 Million; in Q1 2023, it was $437 Million. 

From the entry losses, hacks particularly accounted for 96%, and scams and other activities accounted for 4%. 

The Chief Executive Officer of Immunefi, Mitchell Amador, said, “While it’s positive that overall losses have decreased, it’s essential to note that DeFi faced significant challenges, accounting for 100% of total losses in Q1 2024,” he adds “Particularly, the ecosystem witnessed a considerable volume of losses due to private key compromises, emphasizing the critical need to secure both code and protocol infrastructure.” 

Ethereum and BNB blockchains are termed to be hackers’ favorites. Approximately 33 attempts were made to wipe funds from Ethereum, and 14 such incidents were reported on the BNB chain.

The Munchables attack was worth $63 Million, and Orbit Bridge lost $82 Million due to hackers and their activities. A company unveiling rug pulls in the market has identified the theft and tracked the wallet address. The firm informs that the tracked wallet held $17,411 in Ethereum.
