Radiant Capital protocol faced a hacking incident in which the hacker successfully drained $4.5 million from the protocol.

Radiant Capital is a Crypto DeFi protocol which allows people to earn interest and borrow assets across various blockchains. 

Recently the Radiant Capital team activated a new market on the Arbitrum network but a hacker took advantage of the time window for activating (nearly 6 seconds) new markets and drained 1,900 ETH worth $4.5 million at the current trade price of ETH. 

Following this hacking incident the Radiant Capital team suspended lending & borrowing services on the Arbitrum network and also confirmed that no current funds are at risk. 

The services will be resumed on Arbitrum after the completion of the investigation behind this incident. 

So far no statement has come from the Radiant Capital team on how it will compensate the people who lost funds in this incident and also failed to pass any request comment to the hacker(s) about negotiation.

Following this hacking news, the trade price of RDNT token failed to see any big impact. The current trade price of RDNT is $0.32 & this trade price is 0.62% high over the last 24 hours trade price.
