Harmony proposes to mint 4.97 billion tokens to reimburse victims
The team behind the Harmony blockchain project has proposed the minting of up to 4,970 million of its native ONE token. This, to compensate the victims of the $100 million Horizon Bridge hack in June.
The proposal has been met with a large number of reactions from community members, with many of them highlighting the concern that such a large issuance of new tokens could cause inflationary pressure on the asset and cause its value to drop.
The Harmony team noted that 65,000 wallets from 14 different assets were affected by the hack and that they have “worked tirelessly to brainstorm and develop ways to realize the reimbursement” of victims.
