Crypto platform Compound gave away $90 million to its users due to a glitch 

 

The decentralized financial (DeFi) platform sent out $90 million worth of Ethereum assets to its users due to a technical error that occurred during an upgrade process. 

 

A Compound feature called Comptroller allowed it to track where the tokens were sent. The platform's founder urged users to return the assets, and as a reward promised to leave them 10% of the returned amount. 

 

"Otherwise, your income will be reported to the IRS and the data of most of you will be made public," the platform founder threatened.
