Essentially, the following tokens have a higher weight of stolen capitalization against each of their market cap at the time of publication. In this context, a sell-off would be more impactful for these projects if the “Poloniex Hacker” manages to liquidate them.
Most affected cryptocurrencies by the Poloniex hack to avoid trading next week
Finbold looked into the stolen assets mapped by Arkham Intelligence and picked the three larger positions by the Poloniex Hacker, adjusted by their market caps.
Open Exchange Token (OX)
The Open Exchange Token (OX) is the 5th higher stolen value in dollars in the Poloniex hack. Notably, the hacker holds 197.75 million OX, worth $2.83 million by press time.
This amount corresponds to 7% of the token’s market capitalization of $40.47 million, according to CoinMarketCap. Interestingly, the same exchanged volume for OX in the last 24 hours represents a relevant weight that threatens its holders.
Floki (FLOKI) is another cryptocurrency to avoid next week following the Poloniex hack. A total of $814,110 worth of FLOKI was stolen on Friday and could be dumped at any time by the red hat.
Meanwhile, Floki is trading at a $285.50 million market cap with a $45.95 million volume intraday. The market’s perception and fear can also affect its performance in the following days.
At last, Saitama (SAITAMA) is another low-cap digital asset traders should avoid in the following week due to Poloniex’s robbery. SAITAMA has a $43 million market cap and a shy $488,939 24-hour volume.
This means that the 271.85 million SAITAMA, worth $265,420 USD, represents more than half of its total volume and 0.6% of Saitama’s market capitalization.
However, Justin Sun is partnering up with other centralized and decentralized exchanges to mitigate the possible effects of the hack. With that, these institutions aim to limit the hacker’s capacity to liquidate de stolen tokens from Poloniex.
