Billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban just lost a huge bag.
nearly $900,000 worth of crypto was reportedly drained from one of the hot wallets belonging to the billionaire investor.
Independent blockchain sleuth Wazz was the first to spot the hack on Sept. 15 at around 8 pm UTC, after they highlighted suspicious behavior with one of Cuban’s wallets that the 65-year-old hadn’t interacted with for roughly five months.

A few hours later, Cuban confirmed that he had gone on MetaMask for the first time in months and vaguely suggested that the hacker or hackers may have been watching and waiting for a moment to pounce.
Cuban added that he had transferred any remaining assets to Coinbase Custody, essentially confirming that the $2 million USDC transaction was him.
In terms of the hack, members of the community were quick to point out that as opposed to hackers watching Cuban’s activity, he must have done something that led to the security breach
