The SOL, BNB, and LUNA SHIB token addresses vanished from CoinMarketCap's page without a trace.
CoinMarketCap had deleted three listed Shiba Inu (SHIB) addresses from the Binance Smart Chain (BNB), Solana (SOL), and Terra (LUNA) blockchains, as per Twitter user @shibainuart.Currently only the ERC-20 (ETH) SHIB token is available on the website.

The biggest decentralized finance hack in history occurred last week on the cross-chain bridge Wormhole. On Solana, hackers forged $321 million in wrapped Ether, which they then sent to the Ethereum network for redemption.
