Avraham Eisenberg defended his behavior saying it’s legitimate and profitable following the return of $67 million.
Avraham Eisenberg, who claims to be a member of a group that last week stole $114 million from the decentralized cryptocurrency exchange Mango Markets, gave back $67 million to the DeFi hub in Solana on Saturday while defending his actions, which some have referred to as an exploit, as both legitimate and extremely profitable.
Eisenberg, who this week was charged with being the Mango exploiter after allegedly carrying out similar assaults in the past, made his first-ever public acknowledgment of involvement in the exploit in today’s tweets. I think everything we did was legal, he tweeted.
Mango Markets announced via a tweet that the community of its decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) would vote to choose how to divide the returned assets in the following days.

Co-founder of Mango Markets Daffy Durairaj stated in the project’s Discord that “everything has to go through DAO proposals.” “My personal goal is to make depositors whole and that’s what I’ll aim towards. But the mix of tokens and positions everyone had might be different,” he added.
There was no refund schedule specified in Mango’s thread, but it did state that “multiple DAO votes next week” would take place.
