Inverse Finance is attempting to resurrect the fund that was frozen during 2023’s largest cyberattack.
They have around $300,000 in bb-e-usd representing approximately $300,000 in liquid value still held in bb-e-usd and lawfully owned by surviving bb-e-usd holders. The inverse bb-e-usd is bound by a contract that prevents them from withdrawing using the ways now available. The team is concerned that arbitrageurs are preparing to seize the stash when it unfreezes on June 8.
Balancer had frozen the pool on an emergency basis in mid-March after the borrow and lending platform Euler Finance was hacked and the money was eventually recovered.
The Balancer Maxis have spent time working with TempleDAO, Euler, and Inverse to guarantee that the necessary criteria for the arbitrage are satisfied on-chain. Temple transferred eTokens to the Balancer DAO Multisig after Euler fixed a contract.
The concept is currently being discussed, and it requires permission from Balancer’s community members since the DeFi protocol’s mechanics would have to be modified. After the arbitrage is completed, organizers want to have a second vote on distributing the recovered tokens.
If this BIP is accepted, the associated payload will be run as soon as feasible. The Pause window is currently in a grace period, thus, the pools cannot be repaused. Upon the execution of BIP bb-e-usdc, bb-e-dai will be unpaused.
As part of the launch process, new Balancer pool types and contracts often contain a 90-day Pause time. If Pause is invoked during this time, a 90-day grace period begins, after which the pool unpauses automatically. The Euler linear pools had been implemented less than 90 days prior to the Euler vulnerability, which enabled the pause. The pool can no longer be paused when the pause window has expired.
The months-long endeavor to retrieve Inverse’s cryptocurrency was not without its hurdles, not the least of which was the fussy arbitrage smart contract itself. Add to it the fact that Inverse has already been abused, making any prospect of recovery crucial.
