Four transactions transferred the amounts into the team’s wallets on Solana and Ethereum.

Crema Finance, a concentrated liquidity protocol on Solana, said the hacker returned stolen funds after negotiating to keep 45,455 SOL ($1.65 million) as a bounty reward.

The team has labelled the perpetrator as a “white hat,” a term given to ethical hackers, according to The Block, which indicates that the company is not looking to take legal action against the unknown hacker.

“After a long negotiation, the hacker agreed to take 45,455 SOL as the white hat bounty. Now we have confirmed the receipt of 6,064 ETH + 23,967.9 SOL in four transactions,” the Crema Finance team said.

Prior to the negotiation, Crema Finance had immediately offered the attacker an $800,000 bounty before contacting law enforcement authorities and launching an investigation.
