Tokens will be distributed in accordance with the number of stablecoins on users’ accounts at the time of the attack. Initially, the project announced the transfer of assets within 24 hours but postponed the process due to the update of the list of affected addresses.

The rest of the assets in DAI and USDC stablecoins were lost. The Warp Finance team has promised to use debt tokens (IOUs) to fully compensate for the damage.

As a reminder, the Warp Finance project lost $7.7 million as a result of an attack using an instant loan through Uniswap and the dYdX DeFi platform.
