The operators of cryptocurrency play-to-earn game WonderHero have disabled the service after hackers stole about $320,000 worth of Binance Coin (BNB).
The attack caused the price of WonderHero’s own coin, WND, to plummet more than 90%.
WonderHero is one of many popular games where players earn revenue in cryptocurrencies and NFTs through gameplay. The platform currently has about 11,000 active users.
But on Thursday morning, blockchain analysis firm PeckShield notified the company that a hacker was exploiting the platform. WonderHero quickly disabled the game and its website before telling users it was aware of the price drop in WonderHero’s coin.
By Thursday afternoon, the company released a blog post confirming that the hackers had stolen a total of 750 BNB after minting 80 million WND. The hackers then sent the 750 BNB to a cryptocurrency mixer called PancakeSwap.
