In fact, Bitfinex has been hacked many times in the past. For instance, in 2018, Bitfinex was hacked and stolen about 120,000 Bitcoins from user accounts, worth about 72 million dollars. This incident led to a crisis of confidence in Bitfinex. In order to regain the trust of users, Bitfinex later created BFX tokens to compensate those users experienced financial losses.

Since then, Bitfinex has continuously improved its end-to-end security measures, improved its audit process, and reduced the "attack surface" of its infrastructure. Currently, it is considered a secure cryptocurrency exchange with strict security measures to protect users' funds.
