Network troubles leaves Elrond in a slump

Elrond’s major decentralized exchange, Maiar, is forced offline due to an exploit, sending the token to yearly lows.

  • Maiar DEX was drained of a reported $113m worth of EGLD (Elrond’s native token). Initially the DEX went down on Sunday due to what Elrond CEO Beniamin Mincu called “suspicious activity” – now it seems, we know the reason why.
  • The attack saw 1.65m EGLD withdrawn through a malicious smart contract that has many peeps scratching their heads. The stolen EGLD was then dumped – over 800k in fact (worth around $54m), which saw the price crater on Maiar DEX to go from $76 to $5.
  • Thankfully, the price of EGLD on other exchanges wasn't as badly affected. That said, it has still fallen nearly 10% this week, and now trades at a price not seen since July 2021. Beniamin Mincu tweeted on Sunday that the folks at Elrond would give an update “soon” to hopefully quell investors’ nerves.

Elrond expands the fellowship

Elrond has recruited another member for its journey to the top, and the rest of the team seems to think they fit right in.

  • The token trekked upward by 7.4% on Tuesday to mark its second day in the green for 2022. It closed back up over $200 to somewhat recover from its 17% losses last week.
  • It’s acquiring cryptocurrency payments company Utrust (UTKUSD), and the idea is to together create an alternative to traditional payments networks, which typically take a long time and charge super high commission fees.
  • It’s betting big on Web3 payments, and the pair has plans to create a decentralized payments app called “Merchant Yield”.

Year of #web3payments.


This is how the revolution starts.

All eyes on Elrond

Altseason is in full swing, and a massive liquidity incentive program from blockchain platform Elrond sends its native token shooting upwards.

  • Elrond’s token is up over 81% in five days to hit record highs.
  • It launched its Maiar DEX DeFi platform on Friday, which represents a massive push in DeFi adoption and came with a $1.29bn liquidity incentive fund to boost usage.
  • It’s possibly the largest incentive program the market has seen to date, and the platform hopes to compete with the likes of UniSwap and SushiSwap.
