Gala Games Hack Update: Binance Discusses Recovery Plans
Blockchain gaming company Gala Games notified users on Friday that GALA was not hacked, breached or exploited in any way. ONE misconfiguration of pNetwork bridge resulted in the redistribution of pGALA, with all GALA tokens on Ethereum being “safe”. GALA tokens plunged 39% in a few hours due to panic after a single wallet address was minted over $2 billion in tokens.
Binance discusses recovery plan for affected users
Gala game on 4 November memories users that GALA tokens on Ethereum are safe. People are spreading FUD with words like Gala Games “hack” and “blanket”, which are fake. Multi-chain routing protocol pNetwork, which is behind the minting of over $2 billion in tokens, is working with the Gala Games team, Binance and other crypto exchanges to restore functionality.
Furthermore, pNetwork will send new pGALA and BNB to the addresses based on their position in pGALA pool at PancakeSwap. Meanwhile, the existing PancakeSwap pool remains invalid and the bridge is temporarily suspended.
“Whoever buys on Pancakeswap now risks losing everything as their newly purchased pGALA are irredeemable (hence worthless) and the BNB they have spent can be hacked.”
The pNetwork team is working on a new pGALA token, updates will be shared with users soon. The tokens will be airdropped to those who had pGALA tokens before the pool was emptied.
Meanwhile, Binance has suspended deposits and withdrawals for BEP-20 GALA tokens amid concerns regarding pNetwork’s pGALA token. Several exchanges such as Huobi stop supporting the GALA token.
Also, Binance is currently discussing the next steps and a recovery plan for affected users with the pNetwork team.
