The attack stole $ 2 million Pirl? It does not matter, the developers will still napadayut

October 14, developers Pirl recorded a 51% attack on the network of cryptocurrency. Immediately after discovering the burglary, the officers undertook to remedy its consequences and at the same time asked stock exchanges to freeze wallets for security. To deal with the problem was solved in two stages, which combined the code name Hulk. Initially, it was to hold a fork, and then updatet masternode. Alas, the loss is not rescued. In the air hovered a little less than 2 million coins. Members of the team spoke about the two options of repayment.

Thoughts of the employees shared in the official blog Pirl on . According to them, the network is really attacked by the 51% and double-spend, and the problem was solved "shortly after". The hacker still managed to steal 1 961 500 coins. At today's exchange rate, the equivalent of 158 thousand dollars.

The Attacker exchanged coins to bitcoins and led them through Cryptopia. Now the staff of the exchange has completed the audit and are ready to resume trading. To normalize the situation there are two ways.

  • Cryptopia may adjust the balance in accordance with amount of spent twice PIRL. This will lead to the loss of users ' funds.
  • the
  • Developers are willing to create one superblock, which will affect all member accounts of the community and at the same time will restore the lost coins on the attacked locations. In other words, the money will draw from the air.

As the authors of the project, Fund the developers still have the coins, but to cover losses they are not enough. Therefore, they are inclined to the second option. Programmers hold a fork, create the right amount of PIRL for a refund and supposedly even prevent such attacks in the future.

The Procedure promise to make transparent — users will be able to monitor the process of creating coins and their further delivery on Cryptopia. Superblock zeroed 825 thousand coins from the stock of criminals and will add 1.1 million PIRL who had sold on the exchange.

1,96 million of coins sold has already affected the market after the implementation on Cryptopia. The developers assure that the superblock will not only cause inflation but seems ensure deflation 825 thousand coins hacker.

The Reason is incorrect the velocity shift of the production unit from 13 to 18 seconds, which occurred after the change of algorithms the complexity of the block number 2 000 000. During this time, the network appeared on a 142 734 block less than it should. And this is the deflationary equivalent 1 427 342 coins PIRL named height.

In the end, the authors have added abstract arguments about the difficulties to be overcome for the team. However, the prospects for resolving network issues vague. The fact that the developers of the coins does not cooperate with the owners of the mining pools. Last can read about the impending attack in advance — due to prolonged lack of units or the abundance of ankle-blocks. Also a bad sign is the accumulation of capacity in one address.

The Developers pool have confirmed the presence of the problem. Miners complained of abnormal situation 7 Oct. Then 64 units 40 percent were in orfani.

But since the developers are not going to meet, attack, 51 percent will probably continue. And the new superblock is unlikely to be the last.
