Read Lior's article "Smart Contracts Systematic Risks"
In his latest article, Lior shares one peculiar event he experienced in 2015. A hacker tried to exploit a bug in the Nxt code to steal fund, that was promptly fixed. The interesting part is that the unsafe code was deployed to production 10 months earlier and, despite innumerable code reviews, the bug was not spotted until the event occurred. Nowadays, the decentralized exchanges and financial services called “DeFi” develop patchy code hastily written to beat the competition, and their codebase can be considered the weakest link. Therefore, would you still consider your investments in DeFi safe? Most probably, if hacked, they won’t have the capital to compensate their users.
