Blockchain gaming company Gala Games on Friday notified users that GALA was not hacked, breached, or exploited in any way. A misconfiguration of the pNetwork bridge resulted in the redeployment of pGALA, with all GALA tokens on Ethereum being “safe”. GALA tokens plunged 39% in a few hours due to panic after a single wallet address minted over $2 billion in tokens.
Binance Discusses Recovery Plan for Impacted Users
Gala Games on November 4 reminds users that GALA tokens on Ethereum are safe. People are spreading FUD with words like Gala Games “hack” and “rug”, which are false. Multichain routing protocol pNetwork, which is behind minting over $2 billion in tokens, is working with Gala Games team, Binance, and other crypto exchanges to restore functionality.
Moreover, pNetwork will send new pGALA and BNB to the addresses based on their position in the pGALA pool on PancakeSwap. Meanwhile, the existing PancakeSwap pool remains invalid and the bridge is temporarily suspended.
“Whoever is buying on Pancakeswap now risks to lose everything as their newly bought pGALA are unredeemable (hence worthless) and the BNB they have spent may get hacked.”
The pNetwork team is working on a new pGALA token, updates will be shared with users soon. The tokens will be airdropped to those who had pGALA tokens before the pool was drained.
Moreover, Binance is currently discussing the next steps and a recovery plan for impacted users with the pNetwork team.
