After an $ 11 million attack, Rari Capital is the latest DeFi protocol to fall victim to a high-priced exploit.

On May 9, Rari published a report on the attack explaining how an attacker managed to empty the Ethereum pool of 2,600 ETH. The report confirmed that the loss was equal to 60% of all user funds in the Rari Capital Ethereum Pool, which was worth approximately $ 10 million at the time.

According to Whitehat hacker Emiliano Bonassi, the exploit appears to be an “evil contract” exploit, in which an attacker tricked a contract into believing that a hostile…

Everyone is talking about the Internet of Things and more and more machines are communicating with each other around the world. …

Hardly anything is so deeply anchored in Bitcoin’s source code as the halving of the block subsidy every four years. Because after exactly 210,000 blocks, the rate of inflation in the Bitcoin network drops drastically. This makes BTC a disinflationary currency; the supply remains inflationary because the bottom line is that it increases, but it is becoming increasingly smaller. In the year 2140, the growth in supply finally comes to a standstill.

The Subsidy block was last halved in May 2020. A lot has happened since then: over 50,000 blocks have moved into the country, 89 percent of all BTC…

Cardano prints a new all-time high after Kraken introduced ADA staking. Meanwhile, smart contracts are getting closer and closer.

The creators of Filecoin have launched a new platform with which NFT can be stored forever.

The Filecoin project wants to offer nothing less than a decentralized, censorship-resistant storage network for “the most important information of mankind.” The project is a supplement to the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), a peer-to-peer storage protocol that connects devices without an intermediary server (as known as HTTP). Both the IPFS and Filecoin are a creation by the American programmer Juan Benet and his company Protocol Labs.

Protocol Labs, together with the company Pinata, has now announced a new storage solution that is explicitly aimed…

The horrific transaction fees of the Ethereum Blockchain tilt the gap on the DeFi market in favor of the Binance Smart Chain. Last but not least, the native currency of the largest BSC platform PancakeSwap benefits from this.

A power struggle is raging at the DeFi market. While Ethereum was able to concentrate most of its shares on itself until a few months ago, the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is gradually gaining the upper hand. The increasing transaction costs of the competition play into the cards for BSC growth. The rise in Ethereum gas fees has caused many users to…

The global adaptation of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is advancing at a record pace, while Polygon is making enormous strides in scaling Ethereum.

The DeFi sector is on the upswing. In the past seven days, DeFi Logs Total Managed Capital (TVL) climbed from $ 108.93 billion to $ 122.73 billion at press time.

But what exactly is behind the upgrade, and why could Ethereum become a deflationary and potentially more valuable cryptocurrency than Bitcoin?

What is an EIP?

EIP stands for Ethereum Improvement Proposal. Since Ethereum is an open-source program, anyone can submit a suggestion for improvement via GitHub. But in order for the new code to be integrated on the ETH Mainnet, it must first go through an approval process. In addition, the Ethereum core developers who manage Ethereum’s GitHub must confirm the improvement proposal at the end of the process.

The passing of an EIP can therefore be thought of as the passing of a…
