North Korean hackers made a $1.7 billion killing in 2022

Hackers with links to North Korea have robbed over $1.7 billion worth of crypto in 2022 according to blockchain firm Chainalysis.

The amount of crypto stolen last year is nearly quadruple the amount secured by hackers in 2021: $429 million.

These hacks make up 44% of all crypto hacks last year, a total of $3.8 billion.

As per experts, North Korea appears to be turning more and more towards crypto to secure funding for its nuclear weapons.

The Chainalysis report goes on to state that North Korea’s exports in 2020 were $142 million, making these hacks a huge part of the nation’s economy.

The U.S. was one of the countries targeted. A huge cryptocurrency heist was aimed at video game players who were enjoying the blockchain-based game, Axie Infinity. Around $615 million was lost to hackers as part of this hack.

U.S. officials connected the crime to Lazarus Group, an organisation of hackers operating since 2014, suspected of having direct links to the North Korean Intelligence Bureau.

There are ways to protect yourself from cryptocurrency hacks. The most common method is to have a cold wallet. Cold wallets are disconnected from the web and used for safekeeping purposes.  Hot wallets are usually traded on exchanges and maintained for purposes of investment.

Keeping a separate wallet that is disconnected from the internet and cannot be traced helps preserve your crypto.
