However, as you might expect, this substantial rise in capital is also likely to draw in shady operators looking to exploit vulnerabilities in the still-nascent industry and its systems.
In fact, just yesterday reports emerged on Crypto Twitter that the Balancer Pool was the latest victim of an unauthorized digital incursion. The breach may have cost the community ETH worth an estimated $500,000.
