BlockThreat - Week 46, 2020

Value DeFi | Akropolis | Ethereum | Monero

Not too much calm on the Ethereum network this week. No only did we experience two DeFi project hacks resulting in multi-million losses, the network itself ran into a chain split after someone was playing with a silently patched vulnerability in older Geth clients. Monero reported an attempted Sybil attack, KuCoin got more tokens to fork themselves to return stolen funds, bugs are slowly getting squashed in ETH 2.0 clients, and more news in this week’s edition of Blockchain Threat Intelligence.
