A major security breach has rocked the PlayDapp ecosystem, causing chaos and financial losses for its users. Blockchain security firm CertiK detected a compromise of PlayDapp’s private keys, leading to the unauthorized creation of 200 million PLA tokens.
Millions Minted, Value Melts
This unauthorized minting event significantly inflated the PLA token supply, triggering a rapid 20% price drop. This crash brought PLA to its lowest point since October, leaving investors reeling.
PlayDapp Remains Silent
Despite the severity of the incident, PlayDapp has yet to issue an official statement or update their community. This lack of communication amplifies user concerns and raises questions about the platform’s transparency and crisis management capabilities.
[Notice of PLA Wallet Transfer]
Due to a confirmed security breach affecting PLA, PlayDapp is taking immediate action to safeguard PLA assets. This involves the mandatory transfer of ALL PlayDapp-held PLA to a new, secure wallet. This includes both locked and unlocked holdings.

Wider Impact on Dapp Ecosystem
The breach extends beyond PlayDapp, with the total value locked (TVL) on the platform dropping nearly 14%. While the number of active wallets shows a surprising increase, it’s overshadowed by the overall decline in asset value.
