This article isn't very good at math. The actual math is 75 BTC paid 63.7 retrieved mean 11.3 still out there. 11.3 is nowhere near "about half" of 75.

> Perhaps the tables were turned, but only about half-way: Colonial reportedly shelled out $5 million in ransom to DarkSide. Do the math, and it means that the DarkSide threat actors still walked away with about half of the cryptocurrency.
