November & Hacking Incidents

In Nov of this year, hackers targeted many crypto platforms and drained nearly $300 million worth of crypto assets. They targeted KyberSwap Defi exchange, Poloniex crypto exchange, HTX crypto exchange, and Heco chain bridge. 

Surging hacking incidents across Defi platforms are showing a clear picture of the bad security level of the Defi protocols. However, the majority of the Defi platforms are not 100% decentralised which is not a big issue for the majority of the crypto Investors but here lack of security is a big concern. 

So far more than 4 years have been completed by this Defi sector and now it is time to fight against vulnerability otherwise people will start distancing themselves from such platforms.
