Today, the hacker behind the $200 million exploit of Euler Finance earlier this month returned a majority of the stolen funds to the protocol. The development was well received by traders, driving EUL tokens up 25% in 24 hours. The transaction was recorded on blockchain explorer Etherscan, with over 51,000 ether (valued at nearly $90 million) sent back to the Euler deployer contract early today.
However, further analysis of the blockchain data revealed that the perpetrator had made several other transactions sending tens of millions of DAI stablecoins to another wallet.
Last week, Euler issued a $1 million bounty to the hacker responsible for stealing nearly $200 million in dai (DAI), wrapped bitcoin (wBTC), staked ether (sETH), and USD coin (USDC) from its lending protocol. Developers requested that 90% of the stolen funds be returned at the time of the bounty offer.
The attacker took advantage of a flash loan to carry out the attack, manipulating the protocol into falsely believing it was in possession of different amounts of eToken and dToken.
