Hackless Pioneers B2B & B2C Security Tool for DeFi, Saving Nearly $500,000 for Clients
designed a comprehensive security platform which aims to protect the decentralized finance (DeFi) world from targeted exploits, as well as safely migrate funds from individual wallets and protocols under attack. Hackless works at the infrastructure level of EVM-compatible blockchains, uniting several elements from the blockchain ecosystem in order to strengthen a DeFi protocol’s security from the lowest levels of its ecosystem. The platform has three core services which it uses to help defend against exploits and recover funds: Watchdog – A mempool monitoring tool which tracks suspicious transactions. SafeMigrate (B2B) – The first-to-market service which ensures that funds can be successfully migrated from a paused DeFi protocol that is being attacked. Conductor (B2C) – A private mining provider that ensures the safe and undetectable migration of user's funds from compromised wallets. The Hackless team believes this type of active protection is critical to the future innovation in the DeFi space given the substantial increase in the value of assets being locked up in DeFi applications. Serhii Androsiuk, co-founder and CEO of Hackless, commented: “The daunting thing about DeFi right now is that the rising tide of recent security exploits seems to out-speed the adoption and development of DeFi as such. Seven of the ten largest crypto thefts from January 2021 to March 2022 involved DeFi protocols. Frequent brutal exploits of flash loan protocols, cross-chain bridges and individual crypto wallets stress the need for a powerful security tool which is capable of boosting industry’s security level right away. We envision Hackless as a comprehensive platform that offers solutions both for DeFi protocols and individual investors. When used by all types of DeFi players it will enhance the overall protection giving a boost to industry’s growth.” Hackless In Action Earlier this year, A.I. and blockchain-powered virtual assistant services platform VAIOT was subject to a brutal exploit. Attackers tried and succeeded to take ownership of several of the platform's operational wallets, containing its native currency VAI, which are critical for the functioning of its services. This resulted in the theft and freezing of several million VAI and tens of thousands worth of ETH and BNB, belonging to both their users and VAIOT itself. The Hackless team integrated with VAIOT, contributing their expertise to the effort to safely migrate the frozen assets from the contract owned by the attacker. Using a variety of techniques and tools utilized in the Hackless product itself, the team were able to successfully help VAIOT recover $400,000 in frozen assets, whilst ensuring both the techniques and their employment remained undetected to the attacker. This successful case study was followed in quick succession by other examples of Hackless in action. The first involved a user who had their private keys stolen (a theft all too common in the crypto space) following a phishing attack. The attacker then monitored the wallet, draining all funds as soon as they appeared, leaving the user unable to access their NFTs worth ~$4,000. In this case, Hackless was able to deploy two key features of its product, the Conductor and SafeMigrate. The team were able to retrieve all the user’s NFTs to an uncompromised wallet without the attacker being aware. The second was a similar case, only the amount stolen was significantly higher at $87,000. Deploying the same features, Hackless was able to recover this amount quickly, proving again not only that there is demand for this service, but that their tools work. Consequently, both the Conductor and SafeMigrate form part of Hackless’ core offering, which is now available to the public. Securing the Future of DeFi with Hackless Hackless has demonstrated its DeFi security pedigree in the wild. Its mission to provide a robust security layer between Ethereum and its many DeFi protocols, is inspired and facilitated by the experience of its Ukraine-based team. Co-Founders Serhii Androsiuk and Pavel Radchuk have extensive experience in the blockchain space, with both having worked with various DeFi and NFT projects since 2017. Androsiuk is also a veteran of the banking sector, lending his expertise in growing projects to scale to the Hackless team. This year has seen the beginning of the architectural design for its modular platform, as well as production-ready services. The roadmap this year still has a number of exciting developments to come, including its staking program (Q3 2022), V1 Conductor (Q3 2022) and V1 SafeMigrate (Q4 2022). Combined with partnerships with leading DeFi projects such as Blaize and Zokyo, Hackless is well positioned to deliver a much needed security solution for the DeFi space.

DAM Finance Receives Strategic Investment From Arrington Capital Moonbeam Growth Fund
Miami, Florida, 11th August, 2022, ChainwiredPRIME Asset Modules Finance (”DAM Finance” or “DAM”), a protocol for creating purchasing power from cross-chain token portfolios, is pleased to share that it has received funding from the Arrington Capital Moonbeam Growth Fund . The investment in DAM Finance is the third major investment by the Arrington Capital Moonbeam Growth Fund, a recently launched $100m fund to fuel the Moonbeam ecosystem. DAM facilitates purchasing power from the broadest range of blockchain-secured collateral, including longer tail, yield generating, and real-world assets. In the protocol, borrowers deposit baskets of tokens in a single transaction to mint dPRIME, a Dotsama stablecoin on Moonbeam. DAM’s innovation provides borrowers more flexibility in dPRIME issuance and vault maintenance by mutualizing the value of deposited collateral. As part of its product roadmap, DAM will utilize Moonbeam’s infrastructure to unlock liquidity for assets native to other parachains and blockchains outside of the Dotsama ecosystem. “We believe the future is multi-chain and inclusive, a mentality that the DAM Finance team shares with us,” said Michael Arrington of Arrington Capital. “DAM is taking a thoughtful approach to DeFi in creating a new model for purchasing power and risk management. We are thrilled to be supporting them as they embark to solve a missing component in today’s environment.” “Existing cross-chain approaches suffer from poor asset utilization and liquidity fragmentation," said Derek Yoo, Founder of Moonbeam. "DAM is a great example of a new cross-chain DeFi protocol that is leveraging connected contracts on Moonbeam to reach assets from multiple blockchains. Being able to securely aggregate liquidity will allow DAM to be more efficient and offer superior user experiences.” “Moonbeam’s clear positioning as the token economy’s nucleus for cross-chain liquidity makes it the ideal ecosystem for DAM to deliver on its vision,” said Harrison Comfort, Product Lead and Co-Founder of DAM. “Arrington Capital has helped DAM from the beginning, and we’re thrilled to have the support of a highly strategic partner with an extensive track record of scaling projects in the token economy.” DAM’s initial deployment is targeted for later this year.

Global provider of cutting-edge liquidity and technology solutions for financial institutions, X Open Hub has announced additions to its vast multi-asset offerings. The company has introduced 30 new cryptocurrencies and two emerging market indices, CH50cash and IND50cash, to the 5000+ global instruments it already offers. With 12+ years experience offering world-class technology and transparent liquidity solutions for banks and brokers, X Open Hub is committed to supporting financial firms. The company aims to help them achieve cost-optimized business models through improved operational efficiency and increased profitability. The Crypto Winter Is Ending Say AnalystsDespite the ongoing cryptocurrency winter, millennials and Gen Zs are increasingly looking at digital assets for investment purposes. A rise in awareness and education regarding this class of assets, along with their low correlation with price moves in traditional investment instruments, has been driving this interest. Increasing regulatory oversight across numerous countries is expected to lend stability to the digital asset class. Additionally, the rise of DeFi projects is also likely to drive interest in cryptocurrencies. Moreover, the decline in crypto prices in recent months has many investors wondering whether to buy the dip before the crypto winter ends. Historically, there have been four such crypto winters, including the current one. Each time, the market has reversed within around a year. So, investors might be looking at acquiring digital currencies while the prices are still low and before the market begins to rise once again. X Open Hub Adds 30 New CryptosBrokers are increasingly looking at offering their clients opportunities to trade the most popular and promising digital currencies. X Open Hub has added 30 new cryptocurrencies to its already long list of crypto offerings. The new crypto offerings available through X Open Hub’s liquidity solution are extensive and include: AAVE, ALGORAND, APECOIN, CHILIZ, COSMOS, CRONOS, CURVEDAO, DECENTRALAND, DYDX, ELROND, FANTOM, FILECOIN, FTX, GALA, GRAPH, INTERCOMP, IOTA, KILOSHIB, KYBER, MAKER, METAL, NEO, SANDBOX, STEPN, SUSHI, TRON, VECHAIN, WAVES, ZCASH and ZILLIQA. “We believe brokers need to stay abreast of trends and should perceive a wide range of cryptocurrencies as an additional tool to attract new customers or manage their retention. In the last quarter, we devoted a lot of attention to developing our asset class offering and equipping our partners with all the tools necessary to remain competitive in the market,” stated Michael Copiuk, CEO of X Open Hub. IND50cash and CH50cash X Open Hub has also added the IND50cash and CH50cash indices to its liquidity offerings. The IND50cash is based on the Nifty 50, the benchmark index that includes 50 of the most profitable companies across 12 sectors listed on the Indian stock markets. This makes it a well-diversified index. Alternatively, the CH50cash, is based on the China A50, a pan-China benchmark index that includes the top 50 companies, based on market cap, listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges. A Global Leader Established in 2010, X Open Hub is the institutional arm of the XTB, which is listed on WSA and licensed across multiple jurisdictions, including the UK FCA, CySEC, IFSC, FSCA, and more. XOH has created a niche by providing complete front- and back-end technology and responsive support to propel growth for financial firms.

Geneva, Switzerland, 4th August, 2022, Chainwire–Season 2 of The TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 has seen a wave of submissions receiving over 1800 participants since it kicked off on May 16, a staggering increase from Season 1 of the Grand Hackathon earlier this year. Similar to the first season, TRON DAO and BitTorrent Chain (BTTC) aim to inspire developers to achieve their project goals. The second season of the TRON Grand Hackathon consisted of over 30 major partners, nearly 40 different judges, and a community voting system. TRON DAO participants could take part in helping move the needle for their favorite projects building on TRON and BTTC across all four tracks: DeFi, Web3, GameFi, and NFT. Within these four tracks, there are 74 submissions for Web3, 48 for DeFi, 50 for NFT, and 30 for GameFi. Project submissions came across 64 different countries, and total participants from 104 countries. The diversity in participant submissions further highlights the growth of TRON’s global audience. The increase in applicants is not the only area of growth in the TRON Grand Hackathon. The prize pool has also doubled from $500,000 in Season1 to $1,000,000 in Season 2, this increase in the prize pool is due to the increasing number of successful projects being built on the TRON and BTTC networks. The number of winners has also increased from five per track, to eight.

The judges have already started the vetting process to find the next big project. Across the four tracks, there are different qualities that judges are looking for. In the Web3 track, TRON DAO is looking for projects that are helping provide sustainable solutions that Web2 products could not create efficiently. In the NFT track, we are looking to find projects that take advantage of blockchain technology in order to help grow the creator economy. In the DeFi track, a big goal is to find projects focused on democratizing finance. Lastly, GameFi projects are aimed at creating enjoyable video games with native utility given to gamers. Judging Timeline: The judging began on August 1 at 9 a.m. EDT and will end on August 11 at 5 p.m. EDT.

Chains.com bridges the gap between CeFi and DeFi
With the idea to create “a marketplace where everything is money,” Chains.com, a cryptocurrency and NFT exchange platform, is developing products and marketplaces that provide utility and liquidity for blockchain-based digital assets linked across multiple chains and protocols. Recently having launched the public sale of its native token, $CHA, the platform offers users considerable benefits within the Chains ecosystem, such as staking-based fee reductions, rewards, early access Launchpad privileges, and more. The idea is to allow users to earn, trade, invest and spend with a simple, single-account multi-product without having to learn the mechanics of the underlying technology. Prior to announcing the public token sale, Chains’s private sale showed tremendous success, raising over $2 million and amassing more than 500,000 registered users in over 100 countries, with more than 60 thousand users applying to the $CHA token whitelist during the presale phase. Led by veteran crypto investors and seasoned economists, Chains aims to reduce the learning curve and the need for setting up multiple disconnected products to have access to the basic functions of cryptocurrency. Chains also offers businesses to apply to its Sunrise Program, geared towards Marketplace early adopters, with over 800 businesses already applying. Anderson McCutcheon, CEO and Founder of Chains, affirmed that the company is “building a platform that bridges this divide for the next generation of users. We intend to connect Web3 and centralized finance, forever changing the way cryptocurrencies are commonly used.” Chains aims to release some intriguing products down the line, such as the “Prism,” a self-developed analytics service allowing users to track and measure any crypto asset, represented by any commodity. Another fascinating feature planned for the future is the “Earned Income Credits” system that provides financial support for businesses and freelancers during trying times. The company works in association with some of the biggest names, such as NVIDIA, as part of their Inception Program, Amazon through AWS Activate, the Microsoft for Startups program, and more.

To celebrate the CRETA’s new establishment in Japan, its kick-off event was privately held on July 11th, 2022, with video games connoisseurs getting together to laud the incorporation of the entity. Some of the guests attending the event were Mr. Shuji Utsumi, Vice Chairman of SEGA, Mr. Yoji Ishii, producer of the "Sonic" series, Mr. Naoto Ohshima, graphic & game designer of the “Sonic” series, Mr. Masamitsu Shiino, COO of Yield Gaming Guild (YGG), Mr. Oji Hiroi, the original comic book author and game creator of "Sakura Wars" and "Skura Taisen", an executive from Okakichi Corporation, founded by Yoshiki Okamoto, the original creator of the record-breaking games "Street Fighter" and "Monster Strike", and other executives from Disney Japan, Bandai Namco, and Microsoft Japan.

Japan and Chief Creative Officer for the entire platform, commented, "I am positively amazed that the CRETA project even at its early stage has been apple to generate so much buzz and engaged so many forward-thinking veterans of the gaming industry under one roof. Apparently, it is a solid signal that the Japanese industry leaders are also thinking very positively about the effects that the nexus of blockchain technology and video games can bring. Through the synergy of Locus Chain's leading blockchain technology and building a pipeline of high-quality games, CRETA will no doubt get the largest stake in this nascent metaverse market within a short period of time."

How DAO Web3 Platforms Can Make Venture Capital More Accessible
Venture capital (VC) investors make a lot of money as they invest a lot of it in the early stages of a company’s life. They can invest before projects are fully developed and before they reach the public. Naturally, this is a significant advantage over regular people who want to invest. However, DAOs and Web3 technology can change this and make VC more accessible to the general public. That’s precisely what we are here to discuss today, but first, we need to explain how VC works. What Is Venture Capital (VC) and How Does It Work? Venture capital, or VC for short, is two things — financing assistance from investors to startups and a form of private equity. This type of equity typically comes from affluent investors, large financial institutions, and investment banks. They use VC funds to offer financial or sometimes technical and managerial assistance to startups and small companies looking to grow. Naturally, VC is always risky as its goal is to fund businesses of enormous potential — startups offering a unique service or technology and companies that have the potential to become truly massive. In most cases, VC funds provide financial assistance in the early stages of a company’s development, but they can also come in later stages. The important thing to know about VC is that it has a crucial role in stimulating innovation in the modern world, and it’s often the only way for small startups and entrepreneurs to bring their innovative and potentially revolutionary ideas to fruition. The way venture capital works is relatively simple. A typical VC deal means the company receiving the funding is divided into significant ownership parts sold to specific investors. This is usually achieved by venture capital firms creating independent limited partnerships (LPs) that are used to sell these ownership chunks to investors. Venture Capital Isn’t Accessible to the Public Regular people are increasingly interested in investing, just like private equities and venture capital firms. However, this is not generally accessible to the public, especially when it comes to venture capital. As we’ve already discussed, VC firms and investors get to fund startups at the early stage when the company has not yet gone public. Others can only start investing when the startup enters the public sphere, but at that point, the best opportunities are already gone. This is one of the biggest problems with venture capital today, at least in the eyes of regular investors. That’s mainly because the modern world is different, and novel technologies, services, and products are entering the market more often than before. People want the chance to invest in them, but they usually get it when it’s already too late, and their investment won’t be nearly as worthwhile as that of VCs. One of the best ways to solve this is to turn to DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations) and Web3 platforms. Role of DAO and Web3 in VC DAOs are increasingly entering the market due to the improvements and overall benefits of Web3 and other decentralized technologies. The good thing about this is that they are bringing some previously inaccessible things closer to the public. The same thing can be said for venture capital. DAOs and Web3 technologies can make it easier for regular people to start investing in startups. This is possible through DAO-generated venture capital funds that everyone can use. Thanks to decentralization and blockchain technology, such funds make investing more accessible to the masses as they make smaller investments possible. On top of that, they can also make it safer as such funds can be better insured against failed investments. If you were to invest in a risky crypto project on your own, you’d face high uncertainty, as the investment could go wrong quickly. However, thanks to the expertise of VC firms and investors, a DAO-generated VC would make sure the funds always go to projects that have the best chance of panning out. The good news is that we already have that in the form of a project called Hectagon Finance. It’s the world’s first DAO-generated Web3 VC funding platform. It was made for everyone and built by crypto veterans who wanted to provide regular people with access to experienced VC networks. Hectagon is also planning its token generation event on the 8th of August, so you can be confident that the project is moving forward. With the added security of DApp solutions like Serenity Shield, which uses smart contracts to offer unprecedented levels of security online, a VC funding network can also benefit from robust security features for every user’s digital assets. Serenity Shield is one of the few robust security solutions on the market. They recently announced a strategic partnership with Digital Insights, a notable digital asset consulting firm. With solutions like Hectagon, VCs will become fully available to regular people and smaller investors. And with the help of security solutions like Serenity Shield, you can be confident that your digital assets are always safe and ready for investing. Bottom Line The world is moving forward, and even traditionally highly reserved private equities like VC funds have to move with it and reach the public. Incredible opportunities only VC firms and investors get no longer have to be reserved for the rich few. With the help of DAOs and Web3 platforms, regular people will finally get the chance to benefit from VC networks and make investments in companies in their earliest stages of evolution.

Learn more about the VeChain blockchain network and how it works or follow the price of its native cryptocurrency VET and the broader market with our unique COIN360 cryptocurrency heatmap.

VeChain is the name of a supply chain-focused blockchain platform founded in 2015 by Sunny Lu, former chief information officer (CIO) of Louis Vuitton China, and Jay Zhang.

Powered by the VeChainThor blockchain, VET coin is the VeChain ecosystem's native coin or cryptocurrency. VET initially existed as the ERC-20 VEN token on Ethereum, and the VEN to VET swap was done in 2018 when the platform transitioned to its own public blockchain network.

VeChain's mission is to make supply chain management and the tracking of other business processes more transparent and efficient using blockchain technology. With support for smart contracts, VeChain also intends to facilitate the creation of decentralized applications (DApps) along with IoT integrations.

Some of the key areas in which VeChain aims to excel are the improved traceability and anti-counterfeiting of luxury items.

The network actually relies on two native cryptocurrencies, VET coin, which is used to vote on changes to the protocol, and VTHO, or VeChainThor Energy, used for transactions on the blockchain.

VET price

According to our VET USD live price chart, VET coin saw a significant price increase in 2020 when it went from almost $0.009 to $0.022 between June. 24 to July. 8, registering a 150%+ increase in just 14 days. VET price then went on to set an all-time high of over $0.023 on Aug. 9, 2020.

However, VET coin price in USD terms saw the most success in 2021, where it started at just above $0.02 on Jan. 1 before going to $0.06 by Feb. 12 — a gain of over 200%.

The price of VET coin continued this upward trend for the next few months, with another major spike coming in April when the VeChain cryptocurrency hit a new all-time high, going from around $0.04 on Feb. 28, 2021, to nearly $0.28 on April. 17, 2021 — a price surge of more than 670%. This high put VET’s fully diluted valuation at around $24 billion.

However, the price of VET cryptocurrency subsequently dropped and it traded as low as $0.04 in Q1, 2022.

How VET works

The VeChain platform operates on the VechainThor blockchain, a blockchain intended to provide businesses with better security, scalability, and most importantly affordability. It has two tokens, VET and VTHO. VET is used for voting on network protocols alongside storing and transferring value. VTHO, on the other hand, serves as gas used to confirm transactions on the blockchain, much like Ether on the Ethereum network.

The VeChainThor blockchain uses the proof-of-authority (PoA) consensus protocol. Users who are responsible for validating and adding new blocks on the blockchain are known as master nodes. To run master nodes, users are asked to stake 25 million VET and undergo a complete KYC/identity disclosure process.

While the way VeChainThor works allows for faster processing of transactions, it does end up receiving criticism on account of lack of decentralization.

VET news, updates, and highlights

In January 2018, Vechain announced that DNV GL, a Norwegian audit company, would be providing its customers with VeChain's blockchain services. They also announced the development of "My Story" in collaboration with VeChain, a blockchain-powered assurance solution, allowing brands to share enhanced tracking information with customers.

On June. 25, 2019, the VeChain Foundation announced that Walmart China, with the help of the VeChainThor blockchain, will launch the Walmart China Blockchain Traceability Platform. The platform aims to ensure that customers can confidently purchase products with the knowledge that they are authentic and safe.

On Nov. 16, 2021, VeChain announced its upgrade to PoA (proof-of-authority) 2.0 consensus mechanism, with the goal to improve the network's security alongside making block verification more environmentally friendly.

Frequently asked questions about VET

  • Can you mine or stake VET coin?

While you cannot mine VET because it uses PoA consensus, you can stake your VET tokens to earn VTHO tokens which are distributed on a monthly basis. Remember VeChain uses a two-token model.

  • What are some of the best VET wallets?

Since VeChain has its own native blockchain, it is not supported by most wallets. However, VeChain offers wallets for both iOS and Android users. You can also use Atomic wallet for desktop and mobile, whereas the Ledger Nano S is a compatible hard wallet that supports VET.

  • What can you do with VET?

VET tokens can be used for staking which grants users the power to vote on network upgrades and earn VTHO tokens in return for every block.

  • How to buy VET coin?

VeChain (VET) tokens can be bought by exchanging them for BTC, ETH, and USDT on exchanges like HitBTC and MEXC Global. You can also use fiat currency to buy VET tokens on exchanges like Changelly.
