Tapio Finance’s Discord targeted by hackers
Tapio Finance, a synthetic asset protocol in the Ethereum (ETH) ecosystem, is the latest decentralized finance (defi) protocol to get targeted by bad actors.
Tapio claims to be on a mission to serve as the ‘middle layer” for liquidity between liquid staking protocols and other applications within the decentralized finance space.
CertikAlert, a blockchain security and analytics platform, first announced the security breach news earlier today.
