Cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex is preparing to resume withdrawals and deposits after suffering a $100-million hack on Nov. 10.

Poloniex took to X (formerly Twitter) on Nov. 29 to announce that it will be gradually resuming deposit and withdrawal services on Nov. 30 at 2:00 am UTC.

The crypto exchange stressed that it will implement a phased resumption of the services to “prioritize the safety” of user funds. Poloniex will specifically start restoring Tron TRX $0.1036 deposits and withdrawals first, followed by Bitcoin 

BTC$37,703, Ether ETH$2,036, Tether USDT$1.00 and other cryptocurrencies “within the next two weeks,” the announcement said.

In addition to restoring withdrawals, Poloniex said it is actively working on introducing new listings, which will be available in the near future. The exchange also requested that all users utilize the newly updated deposit addresses once they become available. The announcement stated:

“Please note that failure to use the updated addresses for deposits will result in the funds not being credited. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding.”

In the same announcement, Poloniex also promised to conduct an airdrop for users who keep their assets on Poloniex. Developed in partnership with HTX DAO, the airdrop campaign is expected to launch in December, with asset balance calculation commencing on Dec. 1. Tron founder Justin Sun previously announced the airdrop plan on Nov. 24.

“The tokens for the airdrop will be drawn from a premium project that is about to be listed. We will unveil the specific details of this event in December,” the announcement notes.

In addition to prioritizing Justin Sun-founded Tron for withdrawals, Poloniex also tagged the entrepreneur in the announcement on X. Sun-linked crypto platforms, including HTX and Poloniex, have been hacked four times over the past two months, losing nearly $240 million combined.
