Belt Finance, which is an exchange that offers automated market making for finance that is decentralized, was hacked into over the weekend that resulted in more than $6 million being taken.
It is just the latest in a string of attacks associated with Binance Smart Chain, developed by Binance. Belt Finance explained on their website that the hacker came up with a smart contract and then exploited the strategy protocols, which then executed the contract eight times, resulting in a profit of more than $6 million.
Users of the vault reported a loss of more than 21% in funds. Fortunately, no other vaults or pools were negatively impacted. Deposits and withdrawals were paused, but they have now been resumed.
