LONDON - Hackers have stolen digital assets totalling around $160 million from cryptocurrency trading firm Wintermute, its CEO tweeted on Tuesday.

The theft targeted the decentralised finance operations of London-based Wintermute, Evgeny Gaevoy said in a tweet.

The firm, which provides liquidity across major crypto exchanges and trading platforms, remains solvent after the hack, he added.
