Animoca-backed Gamee confirms major exploit of token contracts

Gamee, a blockchain gaming project backed by Animoca Brands, confirmed that its Gamee token (GMEE) contracts on Polygon suffered “unauthorized access” on Tuesday. The incident resulted in the theft of 600 million tokens at around 6:31 p.m. UTC.

In an X post, Gamee reported that its Polygon GMEE deployer address appeared compromised via unauthorized GitLab access earlier today, leading to a large theft of tokens, which were subsequently converted to ETH and MATIC. The impacted tokens were valued at $15 million at the time of the incident.

“Over the next few hours, the exploiter exchanged the compromised tokens via various DEXs, impacting the GMEE token price across various exchanges,” Gamee added — claiming that all unauthorized access to the token contracts has been secured.

The price of the GMEE token has dropped 64% over the past 24 hours to below $0.01, according to CoinGecko data.

“The exploit affected proprietary team token reserves only, and no community-owned assets have been compromised,” Gamee continued. “Gamee does not custody or manage any community-owned assets.”

Gamee added it would identify impacted users and explore a plan to support its “loyal community through this challenging period.”
