Ankr Continues Recovery From Dec. 1 Exploit

The healing process has begun, following the $15 million exploit of Ankr Protocol.

On Dec. 12, the Web3 infrastructure project announced it had completed two airdrops of ankrBNB and BNB tokens to users of several platforms and Decentralized Exchanges (DEXes).

On Dec. 9, Ankr announced ankrBNB airdrop plans for users of other protocols as well.

The hacker exploited an unlimited mint bug in the aBNBc code, managing to use the ill-gotten aBNBc to borrow 16 million $HAY that were sold for $15.5 million BUSD on 1inch.

Ankr and HAY-maker Helio Protocol have been working together to recover from the attack, with Helio covering the $15 million in bad debt and Ankr paying it back over time by purchasing $HAY.

According to DefiLlama, the Total Value Locked (TVL) on Ankr has rebounded to surpass $170 million, putting it back on par with pre-hack levels, after which TVL plummeted to below $71 million as staking pools were locked.
