DAO Maker, a fundraising platform for upcoming crypto projects that has no relation to the more widely known MakerDAO, was exploited Thursday, resulting in a loss of more than $7 million, according to China-based blockchain security analysis firm PeckShield.
In a Twitter thread, the DAO Maker team said 5,521 users were affected, with the average user losing $1,250.
“Blockchain forensics company CipherBlade is already investigating, and exchanges blocked the hackers’ wallet,” DAO Maker tweeted.
A compensation plan is in the works, the project said.
