Blockchain security firm PeckShield estimates the protocol suffered more than $2.1 million from the price manipulation attack.
Decentralized finance protocol Zunami Protocol has advised users not to buy any of its Zunami Ether (zETH) or Zunami USD (UZD) stablecoins, after encountering an attack on its “zStables” pools on Curve Finance.
On Aug. 13, Zunami confirmed on X (Twitter) that its stablecoin pools had encountered an attack, adding that collateral remains secure as it begins an investigation into the potential exploit.
