The hacker confirmed optimistically that he was wearing a white hat and asked
project developers to provide a return address for the remaining tokens they had.
The hacker stole 20 million OP tokens from Optimism by profiting from a failed
transaction with liquidity provider Wintermute.
Wintermute CEO Evgeny Gaevoy has asked the hacker to return the stolen funds
if they know it within a week. He threatened
the hacker with a lawsuit if he did not return the money.
