The Commencement

ValueDeFi has commenced compensation plans for the pools exploited in the recent strings of hacks. The move aims to restore users’ confidence as hacks are becoming quite rampant with the project.

The Compensation Plan and Detailed Summary

After a series of hack events involving human and smart contract errors, which started late last year in November 2020, the ValueDefi team has commenced a compensation plan for affected pools.

Community Reactions

There haven’t been too many reactions as regards the compensation plan due to a handful of factors: 

  • The market is down considerably from its last high, and it continues on a downward spiral. This means the general mood for crypto is tilting towards bearish as the public sentiment is down, hence the very low reactions from CT users.
  • ValueDeFi has lost a lot of confidence from users already. Thus, the community does not feel the need to engage in the discussion.

Closing Thoughts

Whatever the reaction is at this time, the steps taken by the team are commendable, steps that show the importance of accountability in DeFi. By implementing these compensation measures Value is offering an apology to investors and is trying to build up the confidence of traders/users with the protocol. Time will tell if their efforts are successful, or if the money lost is too big a deterrent for future users.
