Many users have claimed to have lost access to their crypto assets stored in the Atomic Wallet due to a possible hacking attack. Meanwhile, the developer has launched a probe.

Atomic is a noncustodial decentralised wallet, where the users are in charge of their assets.

“We have received reports of wallets being compromised. We are doing all we can to investigate and analyse the situation. As we have more information, we will share it accordingly,” stated Atomic’s team in a tweet on June 3.

Several users have left comments on the page alleging losses and that the digital wallet app has been wiped clean of all the money. Participating in the probe is on-chain investigator ZachBTX, renowned for tracking stolen money and supporting compromised companies. It’s unclear how the attack was carried out. Atomic states that it has more than five million users.

GameStop NFT Partners With Illuvium

They will launch 20,000 nonfungible tokens (NFTs) as part of their inaugural collection. The NFTs will be available from June 12, thanks to the partnership between Ethereum blockchain game developer Illuvium and videogame store GameStop. It was announced on June 5.

The “Illuvitars” NFTs are “dynamic collectible artworks, representing a specific avatar of an Illuvial with a distinct expression,” the makers said. You can move up the scoreboard by using the power rating that each Illuvitar carries, based on rarity.

Every “GameStop x Illuvitar D1SK NFT” will have a special GameStop-branded “Illuvitar,” which the developers claim has “108 potential combinations based on six different Illuvials, three expressions, three background stages, and two finishes.”
