  • How much did it had before getting attacked? – Christian Jun 17 '16 at 12:57
  • It's my understanding that the attack has changed the owner of DAO tokens, but no ether has been drained from the DAO since it's inception. That would require a split and drain which takes at least 30 days. ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/3748/… – tranqy Jun 18 '16 at 12:08
  • @tranqy: Don't think so, the number is going down. My understanding is they stole the ether but not the tokens. – David C. Bishop Jun 20 '16 at 10:34
  • Based on this post looks like the Dao originally had closer to 11 million. reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/4p7ck0/dao_hack_timeline – tranqy Jun 23 '16 at 11:14
