Nomad to give $190 million in bounty for the return of hacked funds. Nomad declared this on August 2, i.e. they said that they would pay up to a 10% bounty for the return of money taken in the most recent hack on the Nomad bridge.
For the return of the money taken from the Nomad bridge, it is said that Nomad offered a reward of up to 10%. The business made a wallet address for sending the money public in a website announcement and tweet.
Anyone who comes forward from this point forward or has already returned money is eligible for the bounty. Nomad had recovered more than $20 million as of the writing of this sentence.
On August 2, a significant hack was made against the Nomad token bridge. With almost $200 million in stolen cryptocurrency, this incident was one of the biggest hacks in the history of the cryptocurrency industry. The platform, however, wasted no time in responding to both the hackers and its community.

Pranay Mohan, co-founder and CEO of Nomad, made the following remarks in a public statement:
“The most important thing in crypto is community, and our number one goal is restoring bridged user funds.”
Accordingly, Nomad will classify any hacker as a white hat hacker if they return at least 90% of the total amount of funds they have stolen. “Ethical hackers” are another term for white hat hackers. Even though they frequently use the same techniques as black hat hackers, these hackers frequently have permission from the site owner, making their hack legal. White hats are frequently employed to improve platform security.
The platform will continue to work with its partners, intelligence firms, and law enforcement to pursue all other malicious actors to the fullest extent under the law, according to Mohan, even though Nomad will classify compliant hackers as white hats.
Days after the hack, Nomad refuted any claims that it had overlooked software flaws that might have allowed for such a compromise.
The platform currently stated that it is collaborating with TRM Labs and law enforcement to find hackers and return the stolen money.
