Over $600 Millions was Stolen from Poly Network; Hackers Returned Almost All of the Funds
On 10th August, a group of hackers stole over $611 million from Poly Network in the biggest cyber attack in DeFi history! Things became strange after hackers returned almost all the assets after a few days. What happened to Poly Network? Let’s find out with Tokenize Blog!
What is Poly Network?
Poly Network interoperability protocol alliance connecting blockchain networks such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Neo, Ontology, Elrond, Ziliqa, Binance Smart Chain, Switcheo, and Huobi ECO Chain.
Those blockchains are independent networks with different systems and methods in the way they validate transactions and store data. Moreover, one chain may have a completely incompatible transaction format with another one. As such, it would be challenging for users to move assets among different blockchains.
As a result, Poly Network was born to deal with this issue by developing an interoperability layer to connect blockchains together in a decentralized system. One significant application of Poly Network is to transfer digital assets among blockchains.
So, what happened to Poly Network?
DEX Aggregator 1inch Expands to Ethereum Scaling Solution Optimism
- DEX aggregator 1inch has expanded to Ethereum scaling solution Optimism.
- The aim is to lower gas fees and increase transactions per second for 1inch users.
1inch, a decentralized exchange (DEX) aggregator that sources liquidity from various exchanges, has expanded to Optimism Ethereum, a Layer-2 scaling solution.
The aim is to lower gas fees and increase throughput or transactions per second (TPS) for users, said 1inch. Specifically, Optimism Ethereum will be capable of up to around 2,000 TPS when an optimized production version of its network is launched, 1inch co-founder Anton Bukov told The Block.
However, Optimistic Ethereum’s throughput is currently limited to 0.6 TPS; the limitation is to avoid potential risks and failures during the alpha stage of development, said Bukov. Ethereum’s current TPS, on the other hand, is around 15.
Last month, the decentralized exchange protocol Uniswap also expanded to Optimism Ethereum.
As for reduced gas fees on the Optimistic Ethereum network, Bukov said there should be savings of around 2x-10x compared to Ethereum. “The reduced gas fees became possible due to the architecture of the Optimistic network, which only needs to transfer compressed state changes to Layer-1 (L1) and doesn’t have to pay for calculations on L1,” said Bukov.
1inch users can now start migrating assets to the Optimistic Ethereum network through the Optimism Gateway, said 1inch. The network is compatible with several wallets, including MetaMask.
With the expansion on Optimistic Ethereum, 1inch is now available on a total of four blockchains, including Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, and Polygon (formerly Matic Network).
Bukov said 1inch is looking to support more blockchains, including Solana, Avalanche, TRON, NEAR, xDAI, and also other Layer-2 solutions like Arbitrum and zkSync.
Aave to Launch Institutional DeFi Platform Aave Arc Within Weeks
DeFi lending platform Aave has rebranded its upcoming institutional DeFi platform from Aave Pro to Aave Arc, according to CEO Stani Kulechov.
The decision was made to represent its purpose as a gateway to bring institutions into the decentralized finance industry. And while the platform is likely to miss its initial estimated launch of July, the final date won’t be far away. “We’re talking about weeks from now,” Kulechov told The Block.
DeFi protocol Aave works by letting token holders deposit funds into liquidity pools. Other crypto users can borrow tokens from these pools (having put up collateral) and will pay the tokens back, with interest. This generates a yield for those who lend out tokens.
Aave Arc’s goal is to provide institutional investors who face stringent regulatory requirements with access to such DeFi protocols in a limited capacity. Arc will offer private pools of funds where only participants who pass know-your-customer procedures can enter, on both the lending and borrowing sides.
In terms of yields, the private pools may end up with different yields to the public pools, since participation is restricted. Kulechov argued, however, that participants with access to both the private and public pools could arbitrage the difference. This could help to ensure the private pools maintain similarly high interest rates.
“I think the larger vision of the Aave Arc market is to create a more comfortable risk appetite for institutions to participate in decentralized finance before, for example, having the risk appetite to participate towards the permissionless decentralized finance, which is the bigger vision offering,” said Kulechov.
