The investment company Algo Capital, focused on Algorand blockchain, invented by MIT professor Silvio Micali in 2017 as a possible solution to the scaling issues other blockchains face, lost several million dollars in USDT and ALGO tokens after its CTO's phone was hacked. According to last Friday news Pablo Yabo, CTO of Algo Capital, had his mobile compromised by hackers which allowed attackers to take control of a Yabo's Algo wallet.
