Launch of OpsChain Network Procurement
EY launches the OpsChain Network Procurement project, which deploys solutions for companies on the public Ethereum blockchain.
The idea is to allow third party companies to create contracts on the blockchain.
The network also allows partner companies to tokenize their assets directly on the blockchain and exchange them.
According to EY, by 2030, more than half of the contracts between companies will be on the blockchain.
Kucoin suffers a hack
Singapore’s KuCoin marketplace has suffered a hack of more than $150 million.
Only a portion of the hot wallets were compromised.
Several reactions. The OCEAN project holders decided to redeploy their token by blacklisting the hacker’s address. Other projects have adopted similar blacklisting methods. The hacker’s known addresses are also blacklisted in most marketplaces.
KuCoin announces that it will fully refund the funds to the users.
The hacker, for the first time ever, used DEXs such as Uniswap to sell part of his assets against ETH, however these operations do not hide the trace of his transactions.
Eminence robbed of 15 million
The new Eminence project led by Andre Cronje (Yearn Finance) was robbed of 15 million dollars.
The EMN protocol, which aims to become the economy for multiverse gaming, has aroused the interest of the community, raising $15 million in cash. But this amount was then stolen in its entirety via a protocol exploit. Indeed, as the protocol was tested in production, it was neither secure nor audited.
The hacker, however, returned part of his loot (8 million) to Andre Cronje’s yearn developer account, who announced that he would return his 8 million to the community.
New start for Keep Network
New start for Keep Network.
After cutting operations quickly during the first release of tBTC and the discovery of a bug, the teams are now confident in their product.
tBTC is a tokenized version in the form of an ERC of BTC. Users can, via the system, block BTCs in a decentralized system to retrieve tBTCs at a 1:1 ratio.
The interest is to be able to use its BTCs in Ethereum dApps.
tBTC thus joins the ranks of renBTC.
