Layer-1 Blockchain ‘Injective’ Raises $40M in Funding Round Led by Jump Crypto
Injective has managed to raise $40 million in a private token sale led by Jump Crypto according to reports from Tech Crunch. Brevan Howard Digital, the cryptocurrency arm of British billionaire hedge fund manager Alan Howard, also took part in the funding round. The capital was raised by Injective and Injective Labs, a software development firm that supports the blockchain, to add new stockholders to the ecosystem. The platform aims to optimize and build decentralised finance applications such as exchanges, derivatives, prediction markets, and options. The platform also produces financial decentralised applications (dApps). Through Injective, founder Eric Chen aims to create an Ethereum virtual machine-compatible blockchain specialized in decentralised finance use cases. Chen said, This is a fundamental piece of innovation and a fundamental paradigm shift that no one wants to be excluded from or too late on adopting. This is why we’re so excited – those who are making large efforts and commitments are innovating forward. Chen added that the new funds will be used to support incoming Injective developers as well as build critical toolkits, support software, and core upgrades to expand its ecosystem. The capitals will also allow Injective to increase utility for its native token, INJ, and will provide liquidity and support to dApps on its blockchain. The raise will also support a broader effort to bring on more institutions and provide greater liquidity to DeFi according to Chen. He added, The ecosystem is institution-ready and excited for sophisticated liquidity coming in as well. It’s a synergetic effort for broader adoption. According to Chen, in recent times there has been greater interest in DeFi and activity from traditional institutions and the traditional finance sphere, noting, This is definitely shown with financial service providers like investment banks, brokerage firms and asset managers regardless of market conditions. Despite the crypto market still finding itself in troubled waters, the price of Bitcoin remaining below $25,000, and start-up valuations are down across the board, Chen thinks now is the optimal time to raise capital, saying, We want to go against what the current trend is. We want to be in the best position possible during a bear market to build and support new incoming developers and capture those opportunities.

Vitalik Buterin Defends Tornado Cash Use Cases Amid U.S. Sanctions
Days after the U.S. government announced sanctions against crypto mixing platform Tornado Cash, Ethereum co-founder and alpha developer Vitalik Buterin opined on the matter, defending the platform's use case for legitimate contexts. According to Buterin, Tornado Cash is an example of a platform that can be used for legitimate use cases, such as donating to causes that are politically contentious. Buterin, for one, admitted that he has used the platform to donate to Ukraine, which has been needing aid from the international community due to its present geopolitical conflict with Russia. I'll out myself as someone who has used TC to donate to this exact cause. — vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) August 9, 2022 Donations in solidarity with Ukraine's predicament have poured in from around the world, and the concern with regards to the privacy measures in place for doing so have abound since then. Crypto mixing platform Tornado Cash has been identified as one of the key services used for this purpose. In recent weeks, the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) has been scrutinizing crypto mixer services such as Tornado Cash for possible links to criminal activity, leading to the U.S. Treasury instituting a ban for alleged laundering of "proceeds of cybercrimes," among other reasons. The U.S. Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has placed Tornado Cash on its sanctions list, meaning that any crypto addresses associated with the platform are now blocked from receiving crypto from U.S.-based wallet services or exchanges. The OFAC has also warned that Americans who transact with sanctioned entities could face civil or criminal penalties. Despite this, Buterin argued that crypto mixers like Tornado Cash can still be used for legitimate purpose. This move by the U.S. government is seen by the crypto community as yet another attack on crypto privacy and consumer privacy rights in general, with some even going so far as to call it a declaration of war against crypto users who value their privacy rights. "Wanting to donate to Ukraine is a great example of a valid need for financial privacy. On this note, curious if there are documented examples of TC having been used for this," shares Jeff Coleman, co-founder of Counterfactual. As a smart contract mixer built on Ethereum, Tornado Cash was built with privacy and security as its first principles, with its code fully open sourced and community-controlled. No single entity can manipulate the platform and decide on its evolution. The Tornado Cash platform relies solely on a decentralized decision process to forward upgrades to its protocol, ensuring that the protocol lives on without interference from bad actors. According to the U.S. Treasury alleges that the platform “has been used to launder more than $7 billion worth of virtual currency since its creation in 2019,” including some $455 million stolen by the infamous Lazarus Group, a group of threat actors involved in recent DeFi heists. Sources from the U.S. state intelligence service also point to the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) as the state sponsoring this said group. Tornado Cash has disclosed that its operations have also been affected since the ban, despite the sanctions only going for the U.S. jurisdiction. According to its co-founder, Roman Semenov, his GitHub account has been suspended, with resources for the platform also being suspended. This includes the platform's smart contract addresses linked to Circle (for stablecoins) and for the Infura RPC (for its Web3 gateways). These sanctions have sent shockwaves across the industry, prompting discussion among policy and lobbying groups. Jerry Brito, executive director at Coin Center, says that the sanctions were implemented on a tool that was designed to be neutral in character. Coin Center is a non-profit that works for the benefit of pushing policy issues in the crypto sector. Blockchain Association's Head of Policy, Jake Chervinsky, opined that despite their association's support for the U.S. Treasury's rationale for the sanctions, they reserve some concern over the fact that the ban "crosses a line that the US government has always respected [and] should continue to uphold as a matter of good policy." According to Chervinsky, the decision "to sanction a decentralized protocol, threatens that smart [and] balanced approach to crypto," referring to the Treasury's previous decisions which have largely been supportive of the crypto sector.

Is Play-To-Earn Dead?
With around $300 Billion floating in the market, gaming stands as one of the most significant industries and with GameFi averaging $175M, lots of potential for expansion! The rise and fall of notable titles like Axie and more have resulted in the emergence of dominant ‘play-to-earn’ and ‘play-and-earn’ models. But with the emergence of dilemmas, which of them is better? Which of them is sustainable? Feasible? Or even valid anymore? Most play-to-earn games known so far revolve around the idea of players grinding with repetitive actions to make profits, something that doesn’t portray the essence of fun and entertainment, the core values of a gamer. Play-and-earn, on the other hand, accentuates more engaging and entertaining games as in-game time is monetised. Gamers can also have a real-life impact on character development and more by implementing DAOs. Some examples of P2E or P&E - and how it doesn’t focus on the actual gameplay, value add or anything like that, but rather just hours of grinding for little money with no good game experience. The Pains and Problems Beyond prepositions and conjunctions, the paradigm explains not just the semantics but also the business models and core values behind the famous terms. GameFi at the moment is not designed for gamers - which is the underlying problem, and no systems can host a genuine grade AAA on the blockchain. Being nothing more than a “gig” or a “nuisance” to earn some extra cash is not the narrative GameFi would like to see itself in. Traditional games offer stimulated economies for players driven by stories and characteristics controlled by the publishers. These games do not provide a market to trade or liquidate assets within the said economies, while the Play-to-Earn titles lack the elements that would make them fun, engaging and compelling. The two sides to a coin can identify both sectors with a set of drawbacks and improvement areas. “There is no ownership if you can’t sell it - and it’s not worth owning if it isn’t appealing enough, and that’s a pressing issue. Bridging the gaps between Web2 and Web3 primarily comes from asset ownership, mechanics and usability”, says Adria Mir, Gaming & Blockchain Expert at G4AL and Elemental Raiders. Traditional ‘free-to-play’ or ‘pay-to-play’ models only provide entertainment and experience out of the games or assets purchased and consider the investment a sunk cost. Because of the centralised nature of traditional games, the assets can be changed or taken away anytime by the operator or game publisher. In a worst-case scenario, if the publishers or studios go out of business, players can lose all their assets before getting the entertainment value out of it. The most recent example was Telltale Games’ shutdown which left The Walking Dead’s final season incomplete. Web3 or ‘play-to-earn’ games, on the other hand, do provide the ownership as opposed to traditional games, with no threat of players losing their assets even if publishers go out of business. However, given recent history, it is easy to imagine the extreme inflation and fleeting deflation of play-to-earn or play-and-earn games when the core value of gamers and their communities are taken out of the equation. Where Does the Future Lie? With all that in hand, are play-to-earn, play-and-earn and most other models dead? There is a need for a model that focuses on the best of both worlds. Many Web3 scholars accelerate different terms daily, but one has been prominent and has had a substantial impact. ‘Play-to-Own’ focuses on decentralisation, control and ownership first and foremost, which is one of the essential factors and foundations of blockchain and web3. But is that enough to convince the hardcore fans of Elden Rings, Call of Dutys’ and Web2 gamers alike? You’re right! - Probably not! Said differently, the “ownership revolution” stays at the heart of what GameFi and the so-called ‘AAA blockchain games’ are trying to achieve, but so should the increasing need to host and build a game that serves the mechanics, gameplay and UI/UX of a console-quality title. It raises the question of platforms built on blockchain being capable enough to host a game of that stature, Former First VP of King Studios thinks yes: “We’re building G4AL as a game studio to host the quality of games that first and foremost suits what Web2 gamers are used to, giving ownership to what they play, low entry barriers, and the ability and a monetary exit button which allows them to ‘play-to-own’ or ‘play-and-earn’.” Play-to-Own has the potential to be applied to any game, may they be Web2 or Web3, which in turn can increase the customer lifetime values, engagement ratios and retention rates. Instead of forcing users to buy-in set NFTs or assets to the game, it can potentially open up a plethora of in-game revenue streams. Creating higher value in games that allow ownership and low entry risk can enable players to choose these games over traditional models or P2E models as they get both ownership and security as well as long-term retention.

Fetch.Ai CEO Humayun Sheikh discusses Web3, Blockchain AI & ML
In this article, we are interviewing Humayun Sheikh, CEO and Co-Founder of Fetch-ai Network about how AI/ML technology can leverage blockchain, Fetch-ai Network's ecosystem, and the role of AI in the Web 3.0 revolution. Hello Humayun! Thank you for participating in this interview. Could you introduce yourself to our readers? I am an entrepreneur, investor and a tech visionary, who is passionate about technologies such as AI, machine learning, autonomous agents, and blockchains. I was a founding investor in DeepMind where I supported commercialisation for early-stage AI & deep neural network technology. DeepMind was ultimately acquired by Google for $650m in 2014. In 2017, I saw the opportunity at the intersection of blockchain, AI, and autonomous agents that. This is my fourth major venture. At Fetch.ai we are building the world's first peer-to-peer connectivity platform that aims to bring autonomous agents and AI capabilities - Open CoLearn, Axim and Dabbaflow products, on our blockchain based ledger - Fetch-ai Network How did you come up with the idea of merging AI/ML with blockchain technology? Blockchain brings the tenets of immutability, resiliency and decentralization. Once code in the form of smart contracts was able to use these tenets, it was logical for us to start building multi-stakeholder agent-based automation and AI/ML capabilities that are the cornerstone of the Fetch technology. We see the opportunity for our technology to leverage blockchain, cryptography and privacy-preserving primitives to solve complex coordination problems in a truly peer-to-peer fashion that will be devoid of centralized rent-seeking that is plaguing Web 2.0. What kind of applications do you foresee using Fetch-ai Network's ecosystem? The crypto asset market is relatively young when compared to assets in the traditional financial system. This is reflected in the relative lack of liquidity for the crypto assets when compared to the traditional assets, which took multiple decades to develop and get to the current levels of liquidity. Therefore, in the near term, it is fair to expect Decentralized Finance (DeFi) based applications to lead the charge as the primary use case for blockchains and crypto. We also expect DeFi to progressively bring new users in the blockchain and crypto fold. Particularly, we see an opportunity for apps offering real-world asset-backed stablecoin loans. Beyond DeFi there are opportunities in other consumer-facing apps such as decentralized delivery networks, Move2Earn apps, decentralized and privacy-preserving file-sharing, and other apps that will unlock truly peer-to-peer gig economies. MEXC and Bybit recently announced a $150M Fetch-ai Network Development Fund. Can you tell our readers about this Fund? The development fund is aimed at growing the Fetch-ai Network ecosystem by sponsoring DApps that will leverage the various tools for building decentralized applications that would increase the utility of the network. The development fund would be particularly interested in DApps that can not only serve a specific domain but can also become a building block for other DApps to have a multiplier effect on increasing the utility of the Fetch-ai Network. Can you shed some light on how you see the role of AI and Fetch-ai Network in Web 3.0? Web 3.0 is aiming to harness the true power of the interconnected web of computers to enable true peer-to-peer digital economies. There will however be a transitional phase where the w2.0 will embrace w3.0 ie W2.5.At Fetch-ai Network, we see our role as the infrastructure provider that leverages technologies such as blockchain, multi-agent frameworks, and AI to accelerate development and deployment of such peer-to-peer applications. We believe that our Fetch-ai blockchain network and automation using our Autonomous Economic Agents (AEAs) which can also be leveraged for off-chain interactions (not using the blockchain) will provide highly actionable datasets that can be leveraged by our AI tools to create more advanced peer-to-peer applications. How is Fetch-ai Network ready for the Web 3.0 revolution? We have our own Fetch-ai blockchain network that is based on the modular Cosmos SDK technology. DApp builders can write more secure Cosmwasm-based smart contracts in the Rust programming language. Our network is a Proof of Stake blockchain that has low transaction fees, instant transaction finality and is more environmentally sustainable than a first-generation Proof of Work blockchain such as Bitcoin. Our network also communicates with the other networks in the Cosmos ecosystem using the Inter Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol. And soon it will be able to communicate with other popular ecosystems such as Ethereum, Polygon, Solana, Avalanche, and Polkadot. Besides our network, our key differentiators are our Autonomous Economic Agents (AEAs) that can not only help with automation but also enable peer-to-peer off-chain communication. Fetch-ai Network’s products such as Open CoLearn, Axim and Dabbaflow provide privacy-preserving decentralized federated learning capabilities to all DApps on the Fetch-ai Network. Can you share some insight into the unique ecosystem around the FET token? The FET token forms the backbone of the Fetch-ai Network and will be the fuel to power all applications being deployed on Fetch-ai Network. I would like to highlight some key Fetch-ai Network ecosystem projects: Open CoLearn a decentralized federated learning network, Dabbaflow a decentralized privacy-preserving file-sharing application, Fetch.ai app for unlocking peer-to-peer digital economies, Mobix a Move2Earn app, Resonate Social an AI-powered social media app, BotSwap a DeFi automation app, and Mettalex a decentralized commodities derivatives exchange. Beyond this, we are also collaborating with many large enterprises on multi-stakeholder and multi-year projects that will leverage many of our technology components. We also have many new exciting applications that are going to launch in the next few months. What are your top priorities for the quarter, for the year? Our priority this year is to underline all our tooling to the community of builders. We want to make it easy for them to create their DApps, so they can focus on solving their real-world use cases. We also want to focus on building end-user products that will lower the barrier for non-crypto natives to use our technology. In the coming months, we will also start enabling our technologies within our Fetch-ai Network Wallet. We see the wallet in the same vein for Web 3.0 as the browser is for Web 2.0 and as an important tool to attract new entrants in the space. It was great to talk with you and hear your insights! Thank you so much! Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only. It is not offered or intended to be used as legal, tax, investment, financial, or other advice.

Blockchain Network Platform Capabilities for Businesses, Applications and Enterprises
Enterprise-grade blockchain networks were born out of a necessity to provide solutions to the numerous challenges facing both consumers and enterprises amid a rapidly changing technological landscape. The rate of growth in the FinTech space has the dangerous potential to leave projects behind if they don’t keep pace with innovation, and that’s why developers are busy anticipating future developments, and implementing solutions to their problems in the here and now. Building the Future of Web3 Smart-contract usage revolutionized the blockchain space, and introduced us to the concept of DeFi and GameFi, but the utility of smart-contract transactions may soon be past its peak. Some projects are building a comprehensive, service-oriented architecture that allows network users to interact and transact directly. By building second-level protocols atop dedicated enterprise services like these can allow projects to side-step the common reliance on smart-contracts thanks to built-in payment systems and private shard chains. These services deliver all the features and functionality that users expect from a public blockchain network while cutting down on smart contract usage by around 90%, and retaining the security and privacy of enterprise-specific infrastructure. This results in cheaper transactions for users, and a greatly simplified development path for developers. What’s more, by removing the reliance on smart contracts, such services effectively cut out a major attack-vector which has plagued numerous popular blockchains to date. Blockchain-in-a-box solutions give enterprises a plug-and-play entry to the blockchain space - one prepared to handle applications spanning the finance, gaming, and information technology industries, and more. Thanks to the use of quantum-secure cryptography tools, enterprises get the assurance they need to launch long-lasting projects which stand the test of time.Simplicity and Composability Simplicity is key to onboarding new users and enterprises to a technology that has the potential to revolutionize a plethora of industries. In search of simplicity, many projects are foregoing complex network infrastructures and programming languages in favor of building from the ground up using common code like C, without any reliance on third-party protocols or services. Low-level architecture makes blockchain easy for other operating systems to interact with. One can easily envisage such networks being used in tandem with the simplest of consumer hardware - smart fridges, for example - because the technology is built on simple foundational principles and code. Software Development Kits (SDK) like the Cellframe SDK allows developers to build applications dedicated to a range of emerging industries - not least the gaming industry. Developers can use SDKs to easily create fair game worlds that encompass PvP (Player vs Player) and PvE (Player vs Environment) game modes, while ensuring that cheaters are exposed and removed from the network thanks to in-built security measures. Ultimately, Cellframe enables the construction of safe, secure, lightning speed blockchain networks that support the creation of distributed networks like VPN, CDN, cloud computing and video streaming platforms. Whereas most blockchain protocols which rely on a network of nodes to upload external data to the blockchain, Cellframe requires no such external or third-party service. Interoperability and Gaming Future-proofing technology involves helping projects build as close to the hardware layer as possible, removing all that is unnecessary, and simplifying the process for the end user. Since Cellframe acts as a zero-layer protocol made with compatibility and interoperability as prime objectives, Cellframe will eventually have full compatibility with WASM (Web Assembly) and EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machines), creating true interoperability between Cellframe and a range of internet and blockchain apps, services and networks. This will prove particularly relevant to the GameFi (gaming finance) space, as the end user will be able to traverse various disparate gaming worlds without having to create new sign-ups for each one. Bespoke governance solutions also make Cellframe ready for enterprise adoption, as it sidesteps many of the problems commonly encountered by blockchain projects. The Cellframe token (CELL) is emitted based on the votes of its community of DAO participants, meaning the community gets to decide on the most appropriate issuance rate for CELL. This means the protocol can’t be changed on a whim by developers. Furthermore, truly decentralized dApps (known as t-dApps) don’t allow for a single address to be in control of large CELL holdings at any one time. Rather, wealth is distributed among network participants to ensure network security, while removing any potential single points of failure. Enterprise tools are not lacking in the blockchain space; they are just waiting to be applied creatively. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Metaverse Memecoin Tamadoge Raises $1 Million Midway Through Its Beta Sale
London, UK, 10th August, 2022, ChainwireTamadoge, the P2E metaverse meme coin, has raised $1 million after just 12 days of its beta sale. The beta sale began on July 25 and is scheduled to run until August 31, but will finish before then when the $2 million hard cap is reached. Once the presale has concluded, the TAMA token will be listed on LBank exchange. Unlike most so-called memecoins, Tamadoge has been designed to have real utility. It serves as the native currency of a games platform populated by virtual Tamadoge pets. Owners can mint, breed, and battle Tamadoges to level up. A mobile “battle” beta version of the app is scheduled for release in Q4 2022. Tamadoge ultimately aims to raise $10 million to build out its play-to-earn GameFi ecosystem, with $2 million coming from the ongoing beta sale in which 1 TAMA can be bought for 0.01 USDT. ETH and fiat currency are also accepted for the beta sale. From September, the token price will rise by 25% as the second phase of the public sale commences. The current beta sale is effectively an open private sale, sometimes referred to as a “fair sale” because ordinary investors can take part with a minimum purchase of just $10 and no maximum. Half of the total supply of 2 billion TAMA tokens is available for purchase in the presale. Adding to Tamadoge’s fairness credentials, there is no vesting period for presale buyers and there is no private sale. Tamadoge utilizes NFTs, each of which represents a virtual pet. Owners are tasked with nurturing their pets from birth to adulthood. As the Tamadoge grows, it develops greater strength and skills and as it moves up the leaderboard it can participate in battles with other pets. In the Tamadoge Store players can buy food, clothing, and cosmetic items for their pets. The more they look after their pet the more Dogepoint rewards they’ll earn. Because of the use of NFTs, in-game assets are easily tradable as uniquely valued assets. Transaction fees from store sales go towards funding the Dogepoint rewards system. In addition, TAMA is deflationary which supports token price and the rewards pool is not dependent on speculation. Tamadoge has been designed to make Play-to-Earn fun, having drawn lessons from the mistakes of early P2E games. Many of these were criticized for tedious and skill-less gameplay, which made earning rewards arduous and boring. Early next year Tamadoge will be looking to explore partnerships with existing metaverse platforms with a view to onboarding its virtual reality vision. It is envisaged that each pet will have a 3D avatar version that can be plugged into virtual worlds on a variety of existing platforms. Tamadoge believes that interoperability and extensibility are essential for metaverse success and the team is therefore developing an ecosystem that is platform-agnostic. TAMA buyers can connect their wallet at https://bitesly.io/box_5a66b923931a8851e48a252348c79bc5 to participate in the beta sale.

Dusk Network releases 2022 Report - Secure development through the coming years
Dusk Network has just released its fourth transparency report in which it underlines the strong financials that will enable the company to continue its cutting-edge development in fully compliant, private and decentralised finance. Despite a crushing bear market, Dusk Network has forged ahead on a road to long-term growth, all the while adapting to the fast-changing regulatory environment for cryptocurrencies. Fast becoming one of the leaders for developing a privacy-focused blockchain for financial assets, Dusk Network’s breakthrough Zero-Knowledge Proof technology is set to revolutionise financial markets into the 21st century. Daybreak Public Testnet launches successfully With the launch of the Daybreak testnet, the public can now interact with and learn more about the technology in place. Those who are tech-savvy can install the CLI wallet and start executing transactions. The testnet includes three major technical break-throughs in the form of PlonK, the lightning-fast zero-knowledge technology, Succinct Attestation, which delivers settlement finality through a unique proof-of-stake consensus mechanism, and the RUSK Confidential Smart Contract platform which enables anyone to program privacy-enabled smart contracts. Focus on business development and marketing Given Dusk Network’s aim of scaling up to support its growth, the team is looking to make new hires in the areas of business development and marketing. The whole team has been working remotely since the onset of the pandemic, and now get-togethers are planned for four times per year. Roadmap Daybreak As already mentioned, the Dusk Network Daybreak foundation phase of the roadmap is currently being implemented and tested. Daylight Daylight is the next phase of development. Here the focus is on decentralisation, and a gradual move towards a more community-run network that has less and less dependence on Dusk Network. The team expects a lot of bugs as the network transitions to far greater decentralisation. This is welcomed, given that the more patches and fixes that are made as more issues come to light, the stronger and more secure the network will become. Alba After Daylight comes Alba, with the power of smart contracts. The Confidential Token Standard (XC) will come into play, and a development toolkit will be released that will enable developers to easily deploy confidential tokens. Aurora The final phase for the time being on the Dusk Network roadmap is the Aurora security tokens and applications stage. Aurora will harness the power of Zedger, a cutting edge model for security token transactions. Zedger will allow the development of regulated financial products that include both privacy and regulatory compliance features. Download the full Dusk Network Report 2022 here.

As DeFi Hacks Soar, This Startup Wants To Radically Overhaul Smart Contracts To Prevent Them
Over the past couple of years, hundreds of new decentralized finance applications and protocols have flooded onto the Ethereum network and other blockchains. In November 2021, the total value locked in all DeFi apps reached a staggering $290 billion. DeFi, in theory, is designed to democratize access to finance by enabling people from all over the world, from any background, no matter who they are, to participate. There are no financial or geographical restrictions or centralized intermediaries - everything is decentralized, trustless, and peer-to-peer. It’s a vision that has proven popular, with DeFi growing faster than anyone could have imagined. However, its rise has been clouded by numerous critical security threats that make it seem like a very risky venture to anyone who’s not extremely knowledgeable about how crypto works. While 2021 was a big year for DeFi, it was arguably even bigger for hackers, with a recent report from Chainalaysis finding that they stole a combined $3.2 billion worth of cryptocurrency that year. This year is likely to be just as profitable for hackers. According to CertiK’s latest report, DeFi and Web3 together lost more than $2 billion to hackers in the first six months of the year. Chainalysis said hackers in the crypto sphere have migrated away from wallets and other targets, and are almost exclusively targeting DeFi protocols today. In the first three months of 2022, almost 97% of all funds stolen by hackers came from DeFi, up from 72% in 2021 and just 30% in 2020. A quick look at some of the biggest hacks of this year explains why DeFi has become such a popular target for attackers. The amounts they can steal are tremendous. The most expensive hack so far this year was the Ronin Validator Security Breach. On March 23, the person or persons responsible for the attack were able to compromise Sky NMavis’s Ronin and Axie DAO validator nodes, hack the private keys and make illicit withdrawals. They stole an incredible 173,600 ETH and 25.5 million USDC, amounting to $615.5 million in total, via just two transactions. Unfortunately, the Ronin hack was not just an isolated event. In February hackers exploited a security vulnerability in Wormhole’s signature verification, enabling them to make off with 120,000 wETH on Solana, an amount that was worth $326 million at the time of the attack. Similarly, in April, the Beanstalk protocol fell victim to a one-day delay inside a $BEAN governance proposal contract to complete a flash loan. The attacker was able to steal 70% of the total seeds, getting away with $181 million in total. Spotting Smart Contract Vulnerabilities The vast majority of DeFi hacks occur due to vulnerabilities in the smart contracts that power the protocols. Smart contracts are self-executing bits of code that automatically process transactions when certain conditions are met. They’re one of the core elements of DeFi as they make the requirement for a trusted intermediary redundant. The good news is that the community is aware that smart contracts are a glaring weakness in DeFi security and is taking steps to address them. The most reliable DeFi protocols today are sure to carry out a comprehensive smart contract audit to identify if any vulnerabilities exist. Audits are carried out by reliable firms such as CertiK and Hacken, and assess the recorded transactions within a blockchain ledger to try and spot any bugs. Other ways of identifying vulnerabilities include penetration tests by teams of security experts, who attempt to hack DeFi protocols so they can inform the developers how they did it, allowing them to close whatever loopholes are discovered. In addition, protocols can also offer “bug bounties”, where they essentially crowdsource security. Dozens of “white hat” hackers compete for a monetary prize to identify vulnerabilities within a protocol. Bug bounties can be especially beneficial because they incentivize participants to act like real cybercriminals, meaning they will likely attempt to hack the protocol using similar methods as the real bad guys do. The idea being that the good guys will discover any obvious exploits before they’re exposed in the real world. Smart contract code audits and bug bounties can help to protect DeFi protocols against common hacks around unhandled exceptions and transaction order dependency. However, audits are unfortunately not infallible - the Chainalaysis study found that 30% of exploits this year occurred on platforms that had been audited within the past 12 months. So while code audits and bug bounties can be helpful, they do not provide any guarantees. As such, DeFi protocols that are managing billions of dollars in user’s funds ought to adopt a more robust approach to security. Reinventing Smart Contracts One of the most exciting solutions to emerge is the Scrypto programming language developed by Radix, which is a layer-1 blockchain protocol that has been built specifically for DeFi. The Scrypto language is based on the popular Rust programming language and retains most of its features. However, it notably adds a number of specific functions based on the Radix Engine. It can be thought of as a collection of libraries and extensions to Rust that provides asset-oriented features, enabling Rust-style logic to interact with assets as a native, first-class citizen. The most important distinction of Scrypto is that it effectively does away with smart contracts. Instead of smart contracts, it uses blueprints and components to process transactions. Blueprints are compiled source code that lives on the blockchain, where they can be used by anyone. Their role is to provide “constructor functions” for DeFi transactions, with flexible parameters that others can instantiate. They’re generally quite specialized in terms of functionality, though they can support multiple different use cases depending on exactly how they’re instantiated. Blueprints can sometimes work with other blueprints, deployed together as a “package”. To activate a blueprint, it must be instantiated by calling one of its constructor functions in order to obtain the address of a newly created instance, known as a “component”. Components are used to manage state and can gather, hold and distribute resources according to the logic associated within the blueprint that created it. In other words, components in Scrypto resemble smart contracts, however, they derive from the logic defined within the blueprint that gave birth to it. Scrypto’s unique architecture allows it to carry out transactions in a very different way to regular smart contracts written in Solidity or another language. Instead of sending a number or reference to some tokens, Radix Engine transfers ownership of tokens from the caller to a component. Once that component receives a bucket of resources or multiple buckets, it can take those resources and deposit them into a vault it holds, or else a different bucket. Then, the Radix Engine ensures that the caller can no longer access the bucket or vault. The end result is that dApps built on Radix have a much simpler and safer way of transacting. To better understand how it works, Radix offers us the example of a gumball machine that accepts USD tokens in exchange for a token held within its vault. In this example, the user passes a bucket of 0.25 USD to the insertCoins method of the MyMachine component. The blueprint’s logic sees that the correct price has been paid, adds those tokens to a vault, then takes 1 gumball from its gumball vault and passes it back to the caller. It can even send back some change if the caller passed too much USD. With Ethereum’s Solidity-based smart contracts it’s much more complex and risky. In the same machine, the user would call a smart contract to give the machine permission to withdraw from their wallet on their behalf. They would tell the machine they wish to input 0.25 USD. The machine would then call the USD contract to make the withdrawal, then call a gumball smart contract to send the gumball to the user. Finally, it would probably also update an internal cache of the number of remaining gumballs to check for eros. Each one of these processes uses a smart contract, and each one is therefore at risk of being hacked due to a smart contract vulnerability. That’s just a simple example. With DeFi, transactions can be many times more complex, meaning they’re exposed to multiple times the risk. All it takes is one vulnerability somewhere, in any one of numerous smart contracts involved in a transaction, for an attacker to pull off an attack. Conclusion As DeFi grows and its total value locked increases, the risk of exploitation will only increase. If there’s one takeaway we can gather from the stunning amount of crypto that’s been stolen by DeFi hacks, it’s that the need for smart contract security has never been greater. While code audits and bug bounties can help to spot the most obvious vulnerabilities in DeFi, it’s clear that the industry could benefit immeasurably from a radical overhaul based on an infrastructure that’s designed to minimize the number of potential exploits from the get-go.
