Shopin — a universal shopper profile that delivers personal shopping experiences through retailers’ apps, websites and stores — says one of its token distributors has been hacked and roughly $ 10 million in a variety of cryptocurrencies has been stolen.
Representatives of the platform have released the following statement:
“On Wednesday, May 30, 2018, Shopin distributed tokens to one of its leading partners in Japan, who runs a large Japanese syndicate. A few day later, her wallet was hacked, as she was not storing it in cold storage or in a hardware wallet. This is a very sad moment; the Shopin team has a lot of empathy for the situation and the wonderful Japanese people who have participated. We are investigating what can be done to help with the situation.”
