At noon on April 30, security unit Peckshield reported that Saddle Finance, an AMM protocol on Ethereum, was hacked, resulting in over $10 million in losses.

According to blockchain transaction analysis, the attacker flashed 15 million USDC, then conducted a chain of value manipulation transactions on Saddle Finance to gain 3,375 ETH, worth more than $10.2 million. Hackers tried to launder money through Tornado Cash but only stopped at a small level, while most of the money remained in the wallet.


Saddle Finance says the BlockSec white hat hacker group has recovered $3.8 million. Trading on Saddle Finance is currently suspended.

Then, in the afternoon, the algorithmic stablecoin platform Fei Protocol announced that their Fuse pool on Rari Capital had been hacked, but the damage was unknown. Hackers have now started transferring funds to Tornado Cash for laundering. However, the hacker’s wallet has 27,974 ETH, worth nearly $80 million.

Fei Protocol announced to suspend all borrowing activities to limit damage and awarded a $10 million reward for hackers to return all the money.

Also, on April 30, the hacker who attacked Parity in 2017 suddenly moved 9,000 ETH (worth $25 million) to Tornado Cash and carried out money laundering. The Parity attack then resulted in the loss of more than 153,000 ETH.

April also recorded two other severe DeFi attacks, including Beanstalk Farms ($182 million) and Deus Finance ($13.4 million).
