As to Arkham’s subsequent writings, the actual damages incurred by the exploit may have been closer to $100 million than the $82 million that was initially revealed.

According to Etherscan data, the majority of the $47.7 million in Ether transferred via Tornado Cash came in batches of 100 ETH. The $20 million in Dai (DAI) that was pilfered and any other currencies that were taken out of the cross-chain bridge were not moved by the hacker. With $51.1 million in Ether and smaller amounts of wrapped-Bitcoin (wBTC), wrapped-Ether (wETH), Orbit Chain (ORC), and USD Coin (USDC), their current balance is $71.2 million.
