Venus Quashes Final Debts

Venus Protocol is preparing steps to restructure the final outstanding debts from their Spring 2021 exploits. The protocol plans to reallocate $15 Million of its collateral fund reserves and treasury funds to help recover the final outstanding debts 1925.43833 BTC and 5966.275601 ETH. 

The ramifications from the exploit have come to a head as the original debt payment plan has had to be redesigned. The new solution to the debt plan was announced in the Venus Weekly Update from October 11. The Venus’ native token XVS has not maintained a price consistent with the basis of the plan which forced action by Venus. 

“To avoid having to use more XVS than initially planned, Venus will use 15,000,000$ of the project’s collateral fund reserves and previously accumulated Treasury Funds and buyback XVS from the open market to stimulate price action and encourage our community and long time holders and supporters,” the update reads.

The restructure is due during quarter four of 2021 and the Venus team hopes it will quash any further debts remaining from their Spring exploits. The exploits have left a long lasting effect on the Venus community in which its team has undergone a facelift and the XVS token has witnessed a roller-coaster journey. Hopefully, the debt satisfaction will prove a necessary revival for the protocol. 

Despite all the rigmarole, Venus remains the second largest decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols on Binance Smart Chain. The stats from DappRadar show a robust ecosystem. Venus maintains over $2.79 Billion in Total Volume Locked and a Market Capitalization over $858 Million. The XVS token price currently sits at $28.50, down from an all-time high of $147.02 in May 2021.

Please see the Venus Update for exact details on the debt distribution.
