Remilia founder claims hack after Ether, NFTs transferred

    18 Mar 2024

    Krishna Okhandiar, the founder of Remilia and Milady, who is also known as Charlotte Fang, is reportedly claiming to have been hacked following the transfer of significant amounts of Ether and nonfungible tokens (NFTs) to a wallet engaged in asset liquidation.

    The incident was initially highlighted by Dumpster DAO on X, who shared a screenshot of Okhandiar saying, “I got drained,” along with a link to an address that received assets from wallets associated with Remilia.

    Remilia is the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) behind the Milady Maker NFT collection.

    Blockchain records indicate that the address has sold numerous NFTs linked to Milady, including NFTx staked ones. It has transferred $1 million worth of Ether to another address and currently retains nearly $1 million in Ether and various other tokens at the time of publication.

    Although the precise method of the purported hack is unclear, blockchain security company PeckShield pointed out a prior transaction from the Remilia treasury wallet to the wallet implicated in the draining, as detailed in a post on X.

    In September 2023, Fang took to X social platform to announce that a developer in the Milady ecosystem has managed to divert about $1 million in generated fees from Remilia Corporation. According to Fang, the attacker had managed to take over three X accounts, including Miladymaker and Remilionaire, while Remiliacorp was locked out.

    Launched in 2021, Milady is a collection of 10,000 anime profile picture NFTs designed by Fang. In May 2023, Milady NFTs were publicly endorsed by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who posted a meme using imagery from the Milady NFT collection. The move triggered a rapid spike in the floor price of a Milady NFT, which subsequently surged from 3.8 ETH to 7.8 ETH.

    Hacks and exploits have been a growing concern in the crypto industry, especially for decentralized finance applications. A total of $1.8 billion was lost to crypto hacks and scammers in 2023, of which 17% can be attributed to the North Korean Lazarus Group, according to a Dec. 28 report by Immunefi. Within 1 individual incidents, hacking accounted for over $65 million (97.54%) of the stolen funds in February 2024.
