Has The Curve Finance Exploit Put Aave And DeFi At Risk?
Curve Finance suffered a significant exploit over the weekend, with attackers managing to siphon off around $70 million worth of assets from users. Curve founder Michael Egorov has a loan of around $70 million in USDT on Aave v2, using CRV as collateral. Curve Chaos Could Have Major Implications The exploit at Curve Finance resulted in the price of the protocol’s CRV token experiencing a sharp decline. This decline has put a $168 million lending position held by Curve founder Michael Egorov at risk of liquidation. If the position gets liquidated, it could have disastrous implications across the decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem. The Curve founder has around $168 million worth of CRV, which he has used to secure loans from several DeFi protocols, according to data from the blockchain analytics site DeBank. This amount equals nearly 34% of CRV’s total market capitalization. The exploit has led to a decline of over 20% in the CRV price, putting Egorov’s position in danger of liquidation. A Major Blow A forced liquidation would be a devastating blow to Curve after its weekend exploit. As a result of the exploit, the total value of assets locked on the DeFi protocol dropped from $3.7 billion to $2.1 billion, with investors pulling their funds as a precaution. Thanks to DeFi’s interconnected nature, the liquidation of Egorov’s position could put significant pressure on CRV’s price and other decentralized lending protocols. The CRV token is extremely popular on Uniswap and Sushiswap and is used as collateral on platforms such as Aave. Aave’s Exposure Michael Egorov has a $70 million loan in USDT on Aave v2, for which he has used CRV as collateral. Based on risk parameters set by Aave, if the CRV token’s price drops below $65%, it would be at risk of liquidation. When liquidations occur, the collateral the borrower deposits is sold in exchange for the borrowed asset. In the case of Aave, the CRV would be sold for Aave, leading to considerable bad debt. The concerns around bad debt were already flagged by Gauntlet, who recommended freezing CRV and setting its loan-to-value to zero on Aave v2. “The amount of CRV concentrated on Aave, relative to the circulating supply of CRV, is already high. Given the limitations of V2 mechanisms, including the possibility of circumventing an LTV of 0, the only way to truly prevent more risk of this position is to prevent borrowing of all assets on V2.” However, this proposal failed to pass. Aave’s GHO stablecoin also lost its peg for a few hours on the 31st of July. The stablecoin subsequently regained its peg, with analysts working to determine why the de-pegging occurred. According to most, the de-pegging was a result of the reentrancy attack on Curve Finance. The GHO stablecoin had dropped to $0.96 on the 31st, losing its $1 peg for a few hours. However, it regained its peg and is currently trading at $0.98. Other Protocols At Risk Aave is not the only protocol that the Curve Finance fiasco could impact. Egorov has also borrowed $17 million worth of the FRAX stablecoin, putting $32 million worth of CRV as collateral. Since the exploit, Egorov has made several transactions to repay part of the amount he borrowed on Fraxlend. According to DeBank data, Egorov also has an $18 million loan on DeFi protocol Abracadabra. Egorov has moved to shore up his capital by selling LDO, the governance token for liquid staking protocol Lido, in exchange for the USDC stablecoin. These transactions have been done in several batches valued at between $10,000 and $50,000, according to data from EtherScan. The developments have raised several questions for decentralized lending protocols, and whether they should implement measures to prevent large positions, such as the ones taken by Egorov, that could potentially introduce systemic risk. Egorov came under fierce criticism in 2020 after he took control of over two-thirds of a Curve voting token, veCRV. He later apologized and called the move an overreaction to what he thought was a takeover attempt by Yearn.Finance. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Spotting the Next Multichain: How to Evaluate Crypto Bridges
The Multichain bridge, one of the oldest and more established token bridges used in DeFi, has suffered a $126 million loss in July, making it one of the larger bridge hacks in history. But this one is different from previous hacks like the Nomad bridge. No code was really compromised, as reportedly the assets were taken by the CEO’s sister. Multichain’s CEO, known only as Zhaojun, was apparently apprehended by Chinese authorities a few weeks prior. The CEO’s disappearance wreaked havoc on the team’s operations, according to their own report. Zhaojun held several important keys that were important for the operation and maintenance of the protocol. According to the explanation published by the Multichain team, they had asked his sister for access to these keys via cloud backups. Allegedly, she then took the money “for safekeeping” only to be arrested herself shortly after. The incident highlighted what some industry experts and insiders knew all along: Multichain was an extremely centralized bridge, which literally ceased to function as soon as its CEO became unavailable. For a crypto project, this is a damning story — even traditional corporations are more decentralized than that. Why this wasn’t spotted Given these revelations, it seems surprising that people trusted Multichain enough to have hundreds of millions of dollars deposited on the platform. Venket Naga, CEO at blockchain privacy-preserving platform, Serenity Shield, gave a few ideas how this might have happened. “First, the code's complexity may have made it challenging for non-experts to identify potential loopholes. Second, there might have been limited transparency and auditing, allowing crucial issues to go unnoticed,” he explained. Because of their cross-chain nature, bridges are often a black box. Even though Multichain’s core architecture is open-source, the complexity of these systems means that it’s difficult to have a good understanding of how it’s all implemented. “Trust in the code's integrity might have been assumed, neglecting the need for robust security assessments,” added Naga. “Moving forward, conducting comprehensive audits, fostering transparency, and engaging the community are crucial to prevent similar situations.” Bridge Choice 101 Bridge vulnerabilities are a common theme in Web3, and many teams deemed competent and reputable suffered enormous losses. So how can an average user try to avoid these incidents and spot unsafe bridges from further away? There is no perfect standard, but ideally it should be a mix of robust decentralization, simple architecture and good history of operation. For example, for bridges running on some form of trusted validators (which applies to most of them), you would expect that these entities should be well-known, and at least somewhat separate from the bridge’s creators. Architecture-wise, most bridges today are quite simple contracts based on multi-signature cryptography. More decentralized options have emerged from time to time, most notably Nomad. Unfortunately, these solutions are more complex, so this bridge got hacked because of one poorly implemented line of code. A good indicator is time. Poor bridges fail and only the sturdy options remain after some time — though Multichain is a significant exception to this rule. Many existing bridges have already gone through hacks, notably Wormhole. At the time, the project got “bailed out” by Jump Crypto, which allowed it to resume operations and re-establish some level of trust. But this apparent “insurance” shouldn’t be taken for granted. According to Brandon Brown, CEO and Co-Founder of personal wallet theft protection FairSide, “bridges present complex challenges for cover providers due to centralization and the risks associated with smart contracts. Bridges are a crucial aspect of blockchain usage, but their implementation leaves much to be desired. “To rebuild trust in blockchain bridges, a comprehensive approach is crucial,” according to Naga. “Implementing enhanced security measures, transparent bridge design and operations, rigorous audits, and involving the community in governance are essential. For Broen, “innovative solutions are emerging, such as Axelar's Interchain, which offer promising potential in mitigating the inherent risks of interoperability.” Hopefully, these solutions come sooner rather than later.

Axelar Launches Interchain Token Service $AXL
Axelar has launched the Interchain Token Service (ITS), a solution designed to enhance the interoperability of ERC-20 tokens across all Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible chains. Among the early adopters of this service is Sushi, a decentralized exchange (DEX), aiming to use the ITS to foster seamless interactions of its native SUSHI token across multiple blockchain networks. Driving Cross-Chain Integration with ITS Axelar’s ITS primarily focuses on the interoperability of ERC-20 tokens across all EVM-compatible ecosystems. These tokens are generated on a 1:1 ratio and are managed through Axelar’s native computing environment, the Axelar Virtual Machine. The newly revealed service is set to provide a muchj-needed boost to the ease of token interaction across Ethereum-compatible chains. Decentralized exchange Sushi is set to be one of the first adopters of the “interchain tokens” provided through this service. Sushi's team plans to use the ITS to facilitate seamless interaction of its native SUSHI token across multiple chains. Initial deployment will ensure interoperability of SUSHI across Arbitrum, Ethereum, Optimism, and Polygon. This move will enable SushiSwap, Sushi's decentralized exchange, to manage its multichain deployments more efficiently via the Axelar network. Jared Grey, Sushi’s head chef, emphasized the utility of this service, stating: "Axelar’s Interchain Token Service unlocks a more seamless, interchain experience for Sushi users." Tackling Security and Compatibility Challenges The traditional approach to facilitating cross-chain transfers for Web3 applications generally relied on bridged token versions. These bridged versions could be exposed to inherent security risks and compatibility issues. Axelar’s interoperability solution, according to co-founder Sergey Gorbunov, addresses these challenges. Gorbunov noted that Axelar's innovative approach utilizes specialized smarlt contracts and a software development kit, which enables developers to manage interchain tokens more efficiently. Notably, Gorbunov says that the bridged versions of tokens, similar to SUSHI, currently lack fungibility and carry a bridge risk. In contrast, Interchain Tokens represent a "true" cross-chain interoperability merged with security and simplicity. The news comes after Axelar's announcement following its partnership with Chainlink's cross-chain interoperability protocol. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.
