- The attack comes a few days after a similar attack earlier
- Losses estimated in the tune of $30 million
- Sixth most significant monetary exploit in DeFi history
Once again, Binance Smart Chain’s Spartan Protocol has been attacked a few days after the DeFi protocol was attacked on Binance Smart Chain as per a report by Coindesk.com.
Per a report by on-chain analysis and security startup Peckshield, Spartan Protocol, a decentralized protocol built on Binance Smart Chain, was exploited. A loss to the tune of more than $30 million has been suffered.
Spartan Protocol is a decentralized protocol structured on the Binance Smart Chain platform. It affords incentivized liquidity and synthetic assets. The attack on Sunday made use of an erroneous liquidity share calculation resulting in the loss.
Peckshield, in a post, detailed how the hoax was affected. The hack first inflates the asset balance of the pool. It is followed by burning the same pool tokens to earn an unnecessarily large amount of underlying assets.
Still unknown exploit path
An official from Spartan Protocol has confirmed the fraud through a tweet. Till now, what is known is the attacker used $61 million in BNB to overcome the pools by a still unknown exploit path to siphon off $30 million in funds from the pools.
Coindesk.com reports that earlier, Binance Smart Chain’s DeFi exchange Uranium Finance was defrauded $50 million in an exploit on April 28 from a similar attack. The DeFi or the decentralized platform provides community-governed and programmable token emissions functions. It is done to incentivize the formation of deep liquidity pools. It remains the sixth most significant monetary exploit in DeFi history, according to Rekt.
