According to analyst Stephen Zheng, the hacker withdrew assets in tranches of 50,000 DAI for seven hours until the liquidity in the pools was completely depleted.

Subsequently, the attacker transferred funds to a new address.

DeFi project Akropolis allows you to take loans and generate profitability on cryptocurrency deposits.

According to the project statement, the pools have been audited by two independent audit firms. They found no vulnerability in the savings portion of the service using the Curve protocol. The hacker carried out a series of attacks to obtain instant loans (flash loans). Such loans are repaid within one block of transactions, allowing you to not use the collateral.

Will affected Akropolis users be compensated?

At the moment, the project team has started to perform a number of security procedures. All stablecoin pools have been suspended and exchanges have received notifications. Third-party security experts are also working with developers to investigate the issue.

Funds in Compound DAI, Compound USDC, AAVE sUSD, AAVE bUSD, Curve bUSD and Curve sBTC, as well as native tokens AKRO and ADEL have not been damaged and are safe.

AtoZ Markets has learned that the Akropolis is studying ways to compensate users for losses and will present its proposal in the near future.

Against the background of reports of hacking, the Akropolis (AKRO) rate fell 23%. The decrease in prices over the past day was 18.9%.
