Crypto exchange Huobi Global released its side of the story, accusing pNetwork of making a $4.5 million profit from the recent pGALA crash, days after GameFi project Gala Games and decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol pNetwork assured its community that everything was alright.

A suspected attacker sold $2 billion worth of GALA tickers for $0.04 on November 3.

on BNB Smart Chain and sold some of the tokens on PancakeSwap, totaling 12,977 BNB BNB tickers down $338, valued about $4.5 million at the time. A PancakeSwap pool was drained as a result.

 

Lookonchain, a cryptocurrency analytics account, claims that some traders took advantage of the circumstance by purchasing GALA via PancakeSwap and selling the tokens on Huobi, driving down the price of the cryptocurrency exchange from $0.04 to $0.0003.

The Gala Games president for blockchain, Jason Brink, responded on Twitter to the community’s fears of a potential multi-billion dollar breach by assuring them that everything is alright and that the activity seen is just part of pNetwork’s attempts to protect its liquidity pool from flaws.
