However 3-4 years have already been completed for the decentralized crypto-based concepts but still bugs are in existence and resulting in a very big loss for such Defi services.
DEUS Finance Evolution is a marketplace of decentralized financial services, which provides the infrastructure for others crypto projects to build financial services. This Defi Protocol faced an attack in the morning of 28 April.
Hacker tried to trick the platform through a flash loan to target a DEUS liquidity pool on Fantom.
