North Korean hackers steal $720 million in cryptocurrency from Japanese investors

Blockchain company Chainalysis published a report in February that said DPRK hackers stole about $1.7 billion worth of digital currencies in 2022, of which just over 80% were withdrawn from the DeFi decentralized finance market by cybercriminals.
As the newspaper Nikkei specifies, Japanese investors were among the most affected by the actions of the North Korean hackers.
Since 2017, they have lost more than $720 million in digital currencies – about 30% of all funds stolen by DPRK cybercriminals.
