Hacker manipulates PlayDapp’s minting process, PLA plummets 10%

Blockchain security firm CertiK reported a potential compromise of the private keys associated with PlayDapp, a P2E game based on Ethereum. 

This security breach led to the unauthorized addition of a new minting address, which subsequently resulted in the creation of 200 million PLA tokens. Following the breach, the value of PLA tokens plummeted by nearly 10%, marking its lowest since October.

PlayDapp is yet to provide an official response to this incident.

According to DappRadar, the total value of assets on PlayDapp dropped nearly 14% since the incident, despite its number of unique active wallets notably going up today.

PlayDapp operates within the blockchain gaming ecosystem, offering a platform where gamers and developers can buy, sell, and trade NFTs and other in-game assets.

The platform offers a cross-game universe, where assets from one game can be utilized in another, potentially increasing their utility.
