HTX, a cryptocurrency exchange formerly known as Huobi, has resumed Bitcoin (BTC) deposits and withdrawals following a $US30 million hack on November 22, 2023.

The exchange has also its plans to launch an airdrop event as a gesture of gratitude to its users following the security attack.

An attacker stole nearly $US8 million in crypto from the exchange's hot wallets in September, just after its rebranding from Huobi's to its current name, HTX.

Justin Sun, the founder of HTX, shared on social media that he expects other cryptocurrencies to gradually become available for trading, with all services expected to be operational by next week.

HTX also announced that it has completed the necessary preparations for resuming deposit services and will start allowing deposits for TRON, BTC, and ETH chains, after thorough security checks.

In the event surrounding the attack, platforms including HTX, Tron, and BitTorrent have been targeted, resulting in collective losses of $US86.6 million.

Sun's crypto exchange, Poloniex, also suffered a $US100 million attack in November, which security experts attributed to a compromised private key.

In line with the decline in customer trust, HTX said it is hosting an airdrop event for all users, with event details to be shared in early December.
