Almost All $1.7B Crypto Stolen In 2022 Has Come From DeFi: Chainalysis

  • Of the $1.7 billion worth of cryptocurrency stolen in 2022, 97% of it has come from DeFi protocols, according to a new report from blockchain analytics firm Chainalysis.
  • It’s a continuation of a trend that Chainalysis noted in 2021, as attacks on DeFi protocols began to rise throughout the year.
  • With good reason: North Korean hackers have already had their biggest year in 2022, having stolen more than $840 million entirely from DeFi protocols, according to Chainalysis.
