So you have read that a DAO hacker has stolen 50 million plus American dollars worth of Ether from the DAO network with a “child dao” function. Lets get some facts straight:

  1. The hacker executed the child DAO function but has NOT been able to steal the Ether coins because 27+ days must elapse as per DAO protocol.
  2. DAO and Ethereum developers are working on a soft fork and then possible hard fork to prevent the theft within the 27+ day period.
  3. Your DAO token investment will be returned to you in Ether when the fork solution in completed as per your choice or likely keep the DAO tokens you hold.
  4. The DAO will still exist and survive after the DAO hack is rectified.

If anything, this situation presents a very good investment opportunity for crypto investors as prices have dropped 55+ percent.
