BlockThreat - Week 3, 2021

Firo | Nano | LivePeer | Saddle | Tendermint

It didn’t take too long to see more layer one blockchain attacks. Firo 51% attack is particularly interesting due to a new precedent where asset issuers were held responsible for compensating a double spent exchange. Tendermint fixed a yet unreported critical vulnerability and Nano was slammed with a spam attack. On the DeFi side, LivePeer fixed a staking vulnerability. This week’s edition features plenty of excellent research papers and article for your reading pleasure.
