On March 8, Several DODO V2 Crowdpools were attacked. WSZO, WCRES, ETHA, and FUSI pools were impacted, while AC pool funds have been fully recovered.
Funds in all other pools, including all V1 pools and all non-Crowdpool V2 pools, are safe.
Jerry Zhou, the Managing Partner at Puzzle Ventures, said he has full confidence in the DODO team and its ability to recover funds.
“Some investors and crowdpool projects are disappointed with DODO, I can understand them. But one must understand that the road is not always smooth. As far as I know, they have made significant progress in restoring funds. I believe that in the end they will show a good result. "
Several hacks have occurred in the DeFi industry since the beginning of the year, including a Saddle Finance hack on the day the project was launched. Furucombo, a decentralized crypto exchange, lost $ 15 million in February, and the PAID Network was also hacked on March 5.
