Another day, another DeFi hack. Inverse Finance is the latest Ethereum protocol to suffer a multi-million dollar exploit. 

Inverse Finance Suffers Multi-Million Dollar Hack 

Ethereum’s DeFi ecosystem has suffered another major hack. 

Inverse Finance, a stablecoin protocol that focuses on capital efficient yield generation, was drained in an exploit on Saturday afternoon. PeckShield, one of the crypto industry’s top security analytics companies, alerted the Inverse team to the hack on Twitter minutes after the exploit occurred. 

Etherscan data shows that the hacker drained millions of dollars in YFI, WBTC, and Inverse’s own DOLA token from the protocol and then used decentralized exchanges such as Uniswap to trade the assets for Ethereum. This Ethereum wallet connected to the hacker has already siphoned 4,200 Ethereum worth around $14.6 million through the transaction mixer Tornado Cash in a bid to cover their traces. The wallet contains just over $250,000 at press time. 

Inverse Finance is yet to publicly acknowledge the hack. Interestingly, defying a trend that happens with most other DeFi hacks, Inverse’s INV is currently holding up in the market. It’s up 5.9% at press time, trading at $402. 

This story is breaking and will be updated as more details emerge.

Disclosure: At the time of writing, the author of this piece owned ETH, INV, and several other cryptocurrencies. They also had exposure to UNI and YFI in a cryptocurrency index.
