Furucombo Will Issue IOU Tokens to Compensate Hack Victims

Furucombo has announced that they will issue “iouCOMBO” tokens to the victims.
Furucombo to Reimburse Hack
Furucombo was hacked on Feb. 27 for $14 million in ETH and ERC-20 tokens.
This affected 22 users who lost their funds. The team lost $1.74 million of working capital in the hack.
On Mar. 2, the team announced that they had fixed the exploit and subsequently deployed a new proxy smart contract.
The team will compensate the victims of the hack by issuing 5 million IOU tokens. These iouCOMBO tokens will be in the form of ERC-20 tokens and represent the right to claim COMBO tokens.
These 5 million tokens will be allocated to the recovery pool. One million of the allocated funds will come from the core team, while the remaining 4 million will come from its community growth fund. This allocation will go live in April after the security audits have been completed.
These iouCOMBO tokens will have a 360-day linear-vesting period.
For example, if Alice has 1,000 iouCOMBO tokens, when she locks-up her iouCOMBO in the recovery pool on April 14th, she will be able to claim 1,000 * (45/360) = 125 COMBO immediately. She can claim the remaining 875 COMBO gradually in the following 315 days.

On Jan.7, Furucombo raised a sum of $1.85 million in their seed round funding.
The market has reacted negatively to this announcement. Furucombo’ …
