Hackers have stolen the equivalent of $100 million from a California-based cryptocurrency company in the latest high-money hack in the digital currency industry.

The unidentified thieves hit a “bridge” – a program that enables the transfer of cryptocurrency – the victim company Harmony, announced on Twitter Thursday night.

“Harmony is working around the clock as we continue our investigation with the FBI and multiple cybersecurity firms,” said the company, which specializes in blockchain technology underlying cryptocurrency transactions.

Harmony joins a long list of cryptocurrency companies that have been looted by hackers for many millions of dollars at once. This year alone, hackers have stolen more than $1 billion from cryptocurrency bridges, according to Elliptic, a company that tracks transactions on the blockchain.
