Web3 Foundation sets up a DOT prize pool worth about $65 million for deploying Polkadot JAM upgrade

On June 16th, according to CryptoSlate, the Web3 Foundation has launched a prize pool of 10 million DOT tokens (approximately $65 million) to support the deployment of Join-Accumulate Machine (JAM) upgrade to the Polkadot ecosystem. On May 27th, Polkadot founder Gavin Wood revealed that the community had nearly unanimously approved the upgrade proposal.The foundation stated that its initiative aims to promote innovation and enhance the Polkadot ecosystem by implementing various JAM protocols, thereby improving the network's resilience. The 10 million DOT award encourages the creation of JAM implementations in various programming languages, including OCaml, Go, and Zig. Qualified participants must reach specific milestones, such as importing and outputting blocks, meeting performance standards on Kusama and Polkadot, and passing security audits. The plan aims to ensure the development of a decentralized network capable of handling various computing tasks.The foundation stated that JAM provides a universal environment to ensure the scalability of L2, independent of rollup solutions, and meets the diverse needs of any application. It added that the community's strong support for JAM indicates a willingness to accept decentralized innovation while maintaining high standards. Although the upgrade schedule is currently unclear, its implementation will be carried out in five steps, including importation, authoring, speed checks, and security audits.

  • Curve founder: $10 million of CRV bad debts on Curve lending platform have been fully repaid

    Curve founder Michael Egorov tweeted that he has fully repaid the $10 million bad debt caused by the UwU Lend security incident that triggered the liquidation of CRV lending positions.
  • Curve founder CRV's loan position liquidation was triggered by the UwU Lend security incident

    Michael Egorov, the founder of Curve, stated through a representative on Telegram on Friday that a vulnerability in UwU Lend caused a series of events that led to Curve's massive liquidation on Thursday. Egorov used Curve's CRV token as collateral to obtain a $100 million loan from various protocols, which began automatic liquidation on Thursday, causing the token to drop 30%, then briefly recover.Egorov said, "On April 15, UwU Lend deployed vulnerable code for the sUSDe market, which is not isolated, so the entire platform bears the risk. UwU was hacked, and as part of the cash-out operation, the hacker deposited the stolen CRV from UwU into lending.curve.fi (Llama Lend), then disappeared with the funds, leaving the debt in the system."Egorov estimates that the bad debt in the specific CRV lending pool is $10 million (already repaid 93%). Although this market is completely isolated from other lending pools, as long as the bad debt exists, CRV depositors cannot withdraw their funds. However, Egorov said that this situation may help strengthen Curve's security measures and lending mechanisms, and may provide better services to users in the coming months.
