Lyra Deploys Newport Upgrade On Optimism

Lyra Deploys Newport Upgrade On Optimism

Lyra Finance has implemented its Newport upgrade on Optimism, enabling users to now deposit USDC into market maker vaults for ETH, WBTC, ARB, and OP on the Optimism platform. Previously, Lyra only supported sUSD as the options protocol was built on Kwenta. While a portion of the USDC liquidity is still converted into sUSD, options on the new contract will become available this week.

The Lyra governance gave approval to the upgrade last week. With Newport, Lyra market maker vaults can partially collateralize short positions with cash, eliminating the need to exchange base assets for hedging purposes. Additionally, the upgrade introduces support for Synthetix Perps V2. Users who have assets in older Optimism vaults are advised to withdraw and transfer their liquidity to the new vaults.

OP Mainnet Scheduled to Upgrade to Bedrock on June 6, 2023 at 16:00 UTC

Bedrock

Optimism has announced its plans to upgrade OP Mainnet to Bedrock on June 6th at 4 PM UTC. The upgrade process will result in a downtime of 2 to 4 hours for OP Mainnet. This will have an impact on end users as transactions, deposits, and withdrawals will not be available during this period. Node operators will need to set up new nodes specifically designed for Bedrock.

Bedrock represents a comprehensive transformation of the OP Stack, bringing in various enhancements such as gas optimizations, shorter deposit times, and a more streamlined node infrastructure. With Bedrock, multi-client support will be introduced, encompassing Magi and OP Erigon for all OP chains. Additionally, it introduces the concept of the Superchain, which consists of a horizontally scalable network of chains. This Superchain empowers developers to deploy their own rollup with shared security.

Tornado Cash Suffers Governance Attack

Tornado Cash Suffers Governance Attack

Over the weekend, Tornado Cash experienced a severe governance attack, resulting in the complete takeover of the Tornado Cash DAO by an attacker. This breach has compromised locked votes, the TORN treasury, tornadocash.eth, and Tornado Cash Nova. Users of Tornado Cash Nova, which operates on Gnosis Chain, are strongly advised to withdraw their funds promptly.

Fortunately, the Tornado Cash classic pools have not been affected at this time. According to BlockSec, the attacker managed to deceive TORN governance by obtaining approval for a seemingly ordinary proposal contract and exploiting a loophole in CREATE and CREATE2 to create a contract with the same address but different bytecode. The attacker then destroyed the initial proposal and deployed a new malicious contract using the same address.

Aave V2 Users Temporarily Unable to Access $120M on Polygon After Governance Bug

Aave V2 Users Temporarily Unable To Access $120M On Polygon After Governance Bug

A temporary halt has been imposed on assets such as WETH, WBTC, USDT, and WMATIC in the Aave V2 Polygon market due to a bug. This bug has impacted assets worth over $100 million, and they will remain frozen until a solution is implemented. The bug originated from a recent update in Aave V2 that modified parameters related to the interest rate curve for the affected assets.

As per BlockSec’s report, the bug arose because the new reserve interest rate strategy is compatible with Ethereum but not with Polygon. BGD Labs has already submitted a governance proposal to rectify the issue. Until May 26th, users of Aave V2 Polygon will be unable to engage in activities such as supplying, borrowing, repaying, or withdrawing any of the affected assets.
