Comments on this post alone include many users also claiming that their wallets have been emptied. No trend or source of the exploit has currently been identified.
Crypto trader Bilal Ahmed suggested to CryptoSlate that he might be tied to an NFT mint from Rakkudo. Ahmed is aware that more than 500 SOL have been stolen from his personal network of traders. In theorizing the cause of the event, Ahmed suggested,
“Rakkudo hit today, currently it looks like wallets linked to wallets tried to hit. But that’s really weird because it also drains the main wallets, not just the burners.
There was no official statement from the Rakkudo team on their official Twitter account at this point.
Another Twitter user accused SolaLand of being responsible for the exploit that led the project to post the following tweet.
This is false information from a fake profile. He only has 20 subscribers, do not spread false information. https://t.co/blRnB9bVS3 pic.twitter.com/QxyLTNqAFN

The uncertainty is currently creating real fear, uncertainty and doubt in real terms for owners of wallets on the Solana blockchain.
Although the cause of the exploit is still unknown, the Oone Wallet, in particular, has been mentioned throughout the reports. “Htp9MGP8Tig923ZFY7Qf2zzbMUmYneFRAhSp7vSg4wxV” currently has a balance of $6 million, the majority of which is in stablecoins. The wallet received hundreds of transactions from unique addresses at 23:22:57 PM + UTC on Tuesday, August 2.
