Crypto News– In the past 24 hours, transactions deemed suspicious, totaling over $3 million, were detected by security firm CertiK, being sent out of the Bitcoin Lightning-based exchange FixedFloat. CertiK disclosed to CoinDesk via email that the funds were transferred in ether (ETH) and tether (USDT) to wallets on the Ethereum and Tron networks, respectively. Describing the activity as an exploit, CertiK raised concerns about the situation.

As of the early European afternoon hours on Tuesday, FixedFloat’s website is inaccessible due to technical work. Notably, the exchange’s social media accounts have not addressed the withdrawals, and the most recent post on X dates back to March 31.

Approximately $2 million of the funds were deposited in eXch, similar behavior to the FixedFloat incident on 16 Feb, with another $100k USDT deposited to a binance wallet on Tron.
