The final year of Mixcloud verified a cash infusion of $11.5 Million from media subsidizing office WndrCo, drove by Hollywood Media Owner Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Twenty million accounts of users disclosed during a data breach at Mixcloud, a United Kingdom audio streaming platform, after the data put on sale on the dark web. The breach of data happened in November.

The news of Data breaching came from similar sellers (Dark Web) who alerted the data breach of StockX earlier.

It is still not crystal clear how much amount of data has been stolen. As said by the seller, there were twenty million records, but on the other side, it was listed on the dark web as 21 million records — the data contained for sale for $4,000, which is equal to 0.5 bitcoin.
