What’s new? In May 2021, the Crypto.com exchange accidentally transferred $10,5 million to a woman from Australia instead of refunding $100, Ticker News writes. The error was discovered during an audit seven months later. The platform filed a lawsuit with the Supreme Court for a refund. A Crypto.com representative explained that an account number was mistakenly entered in the payment field instead of $100. However, with the money received from the exchange, the woman and her sister had already bought a mansion in Craigieburn. The judge ordered the property to be sold and the money returned to the exchange.
