Bitcoin core developer Luke Dashjr did not have a good start in 2023.

A few hours ago he reported on Twitter that one of his hot wallets was hacked: https://twitter.com/LukeDashjr/status/1609613748364509184?s=20

He claims that his coins have been sent to the following address: https://blockchair.com/bitcoin/address/1YAR6opJCfDjBNdn5bV8b5Mcu84tv92fa

According to this more than 216 BTC was stolen. It is yet unclear how the hack happened.

If even a core can be hacked, it's safe to assume that can happen to anybody. So be save everybody and transfer your coins to a cold wallet.
