Wombat Exchange Reopens HAY Sidepool Following Ankr Exploit

by BSC News

December 7, 2022


The HAY Side Pool on Wombat Exchange is operating normally again. Meanwhile, Ankr said it is working with Helio to repay $15 million in bad debt.

Wombat Exchange has reopened its Side Pool for HAY and BUSD as Helio Money continues to recover from the $15 million exploit of Ankr Protocol.

However, the BNB Chain stableswap and staking platform said its BNB Pool, featuring liquid BNB tokens from Stader, pSTAKE and Ankr, remains “on pause.”

For its part, Ankr said on Twitter that Helio will immediately cover the $15 million loss, and that Ankr will purchase $HAY over time using a $15 million recovery fund while working with Helio to repay the bad debt.
