Slope: 10% bounty will be paid if attacker returns stolen funds

Slope Wallet, the Solana wallet exploited for around $5 million earlier this week, announced that it would pay out a 10% bounty if the attackers returned the stolen funds. In a tweet, the Slope team released the Solana wallet address and appealed to thieves with additional motivation: “We will no longer make any further efforts to investigate this matter and will not take any legal action after receiving these funds.” The The team gave the attackers a 48-hour window to return the funds and receive the bounty. It added that it has been working with law enforcement and leading blockchain intelligence firm TRM Labs to recover the stolen funds. On Tuesday night, an attacker accessed user mnemonics stored in clear text on Slope’s central servers and used them to steal cryptocurrency. The exploit affected thousands of users.
