Defrost Finance, a decentralized leveraged trading platform on blockchain, announced that both of its versions — Defrost V1 and Defrost V2 — are being investigated for a hack. The announcement came after investors reported losing their staked Defrost Finance (MELT) and Avalanche (AVAX) tokens from the MetaMask wallets.
Moments after a few users complained about the unusual loss of funds, Defrost Finance’s core team member Doran confirmed that Defrost V2 was hit with a flash loan attack. At the time, the platform believed that Defrost V1 was not impacted by the hack and decided to close down V2 for further investigation.
