TND, the native token of decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol Tender.fi, has slumped by 34% after the platform said it is paused borrowing on Tuesday.
The token, which trades mostly on decentralized exchange Uniswap, is changing hands at $1.99, down from Monday’s high of $3.56.
“We are investigating an unusual amount of borrows that came through the protocol- in the meantime, we have paused all borrowing. Thank you for your patience,” the Tender.fi team wrote on twitter.
Blockchain sleuth Lookonchain said that due to a misconfigured pricing oracle, a white hat attacker borrowed $1.59 million in assets despite only depositing one GMX token worth $71.
A white hat hacker is someone that attacks a platform before returning the loot.
