Millions of bitcoin (BTC), cardano (ADA) and more stolen from DeFi app, is this a “back pull?”

Uranium Finance, a decentralized finance (DeFi) project on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC), has been hacked and as many as $ 50 million worth of various cryptocurrencies have been stolen. The project announced this via Twitter on April 28:

Uranium Finance is a so-called automated market maker (AMM) and a hard fork of Uniswap (UNI). The hackers allegedly exploited a bug in the system during the migration to version 2.1

The following $ 50 million crypto has been stolen: 80 bitcoin (BTC), 1,800 ethereum (ETH), 26,500 polkadot (DOT), 5.7 million tether (USDT), 638,000 cardano (ADA), 34,000 wrapped binance coins (WBNB) ) and 17.9 million binance USD (BUSD). In addition, 112,000 u92 tokens, the native token of the Uranium platform, were also stolen.

The ADA and DOT have already been transferred to ETH via PancakeSwap. Then 2,400 ETH was sent to Tornado Cash, a so-called token mixer to erase tracks. It is striking that the u92 tokens have been staked. The Uranium team reports that they have contacted Binance. Binance has not yet responded to the incident.

It is not the first time this has happened with Uranium, less than two weeks ago, $ 1.3 million worth of crypto was also stolen from the platform. Igor Igamberdiev, researcher at The Block, calls it very suspicious.

According to the researcher, the team had already fixed the bug once and they should have been aware of it. He fears the team deliberately put the bug in to perform a so-called back pull:

  1. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.

    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where
    to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you

  2. I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion,
    if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  3. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog.

    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to
    create your theme? Exceptional work!

    to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people
    think about worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.

  6. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your
    blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
