Today, Hong Kong-based crypto financial services provider Amber was found to have a wallet address associated with it that secretly transferred 2 million USDC to an anonymous wallet address.
Meanwhile, yesterday it was reported that the Hong Kong-based group had cut hundreds of employees in the current batch. The laid-off workers also said that, under the agreement, they were supposed to pay wages and compensation on December 5, but only pay wages, not compensation.
This company’s staff said the financial response said the bank’s foreign exchange payment problems prevented the money from moving out. Some employees said they would ask arbitration to protect their personal interests.
