    The demands were unusually specific: the hacker seeks not only complete control over Kyber company but also temporary authority over KyberDAO, the company’s governance mechanism. Additionally, the hacker wants access to all company documents and assets.

    In a bold statement, the hacker promised to offer fair valuation buyouts to Kyber’s current executives, wishing them success in their future endeavors.

    Under the proposed new leadership, the hacker vowed to double employee salaries and provide those unwilling to stay with a 12-month severance package with full benefits and career transition support.

    Furthermore, the hacker’s plans include transforming Kyber into a new cryptographic project.

    Is this not sweet enough? I’ll go further still. Under my management, Kyber will undergo a complete makeover. It will no longer be the 7th most popular DEX, but rather, an entirely new cryptographic project.

    The hacker also addressed liquidity providers, promising a 50% rebate on recent market-making losses. This offer was described as a compromise, being more than what the providers deserve yet less than their expectations.

    The hacker set a firm deadline of December 10th for Kyber’s team to comply with these demands. Failure to meet these conditions by the deadline, or any attempts by agents to contact the hacker regarding trades made on Kyber, would invalidate the offer.

    The KyberSwap hacker’s ultimatum presents a critical and unprecedented challenge for the Kyber company, demanding complete control and significant organizational changes in exchange for the return of stolen funds, with a firm deadline and stringent conditions attached.
