Sun claimed that the attacker exploded the authority granted to the contract developer and the attack initiated malicious transactions and prompted the super representative to suspend the block production. The so-called super representatives play a huge role in the TRON ecosystem by ensuring functions as block generation and bookkeeping. They are the token holders that obtain corresponding earnings as well. the network “gradually resumed block production” about two hours later and returned to normal after one hour. Sun reassured that the data on the chain remains intact and that the user assets are safe.
According to Sun, withstanding this attack prove that the company’s network is most resilient in the entire industry. As reported a few weeks back, the prominent crypto exchange OKEx suspended the withdrawals after the news broke of its founder being taken away by the police and hasn’t returned yet. The exchange said that the funds are safe but customers were unable to obtain them. the Tron Foundation decided to take a stand after receiving “a great number of requests from holders of TRX, BTT, and SUN expecting to withdraw tokens on OKEx.”
Sun and his team will “do its best to permanently recognize and honor TRON tokens at 1:1 on OKEX” which means that the foundation will compensate the investors with its own capital in the worst-case scenario in which they are unable to access their tokens. The post clarified that this decision marked the endeavor to revive the industry from inside and had nothing to do with OKEx itself.
