If you received a large amount of COMP tokens due to a component protocol error, please return it.
He continued his tweet:
10. Take it as one [هکر] Take off your white hat [و بقیه را برگردانید]. Otherwise, it is reported to the IRS as income and most of you will be identified.
Following the announcement, the price of the COMP token, the internal token of the compound platform, fell; But it soon returned to near previous levels. It is not yet clear how many users are willing to repay the windfall; But according to Report The script returned about $ 29 million in tokens in the first few hours of a transaction.
Leschner tweets also sparked a wave of outrage between the digital currency community and Defy.
