Huobi, a cryptocurrency exchange, has partnered with Gala Games, a GameFi project, to compensate for victims of the pGALA incident, which caused significant losses for both companies. The incident started when pNetwork, a multi-chain routing protocol, collaborated with hackers to mint over $1 billion worth of pGALA tokens on the BNB chain before improperly withdrawing them, causing a huge drop in GALA token prices. Huobi and Gala Games are offering a compensation plan worth up to $50 million, with Huobi providing $25 million in cash and user benefits while Gala Games offers $25 million in node licenses. Legal action is also being pursued against pNetwork. Huobi plans to replace pGALA with a new token, ROCK, and collaborate with Gala Games on integrating the Gala public chain into their platform. ROCK is a Web3 game token initiated by Gala Games in collaboration with Huobi and TRON. Overall, Huobi and Gala Games have demonstrated their commitment to protecting user interests and hope that more exchanges and projects will follow suit in the crypto industry.
