That was a huge loss for a person who suddenly loses his life worth. But thanks to the crypto community that came forward to help the father of two children and donated 10k USD on Chrismast to cover some of his losses.
According to a tweet by Aavegotchi, 200 plus TXNS coins worth above 10K USD were gathered as a donation to help the affected user. Aavegotchi promised that they will airdrop each unique address that donated above $20 when Aavegotchi launches on Mainnet.
