A Hacker sends 1 million OP tokens to Vitalik Buterin's wallet

The attacker who sniped 20 million Optimism (OP) tokens have sent 1 million of those coins to Vitalik Buterin's wallet address.

The transfer occurred at 12:26 AM UTC with the attacker sending tokens worth about $874,000.

One element may be that the tokens are largely illiquid on decentralized exchanges.

Crypto market maker Wintermute has asked the hacker to return the stolen OP tokens while offering a consulting role.

Only 18 million of the stolen 20 million are left in their wallet.

The attacker has one week to respond to the offer but has sent an extra amount to Buterin's wallet.
