The decentralized music platform Audacious said that its utility token, Audio, was “transferred unauthorized” from the community treasury in the early hours of July 24.

Audacious also said that the problem’s root cause has been found and that steps are being taken to get things back to normal. Even though they are sure that no money was at risk, the project blocked all Audacious smart contracts on the Ethereum network, including token balances and transfers.
