How to safely dig for gold in Web3 — OKLink Audit secures your exploration


Ambitious miners started their Web3 exploration in pursuit of gold. Using new ways to pull gold out of the world under more uncertainty, the stakes are higher than ever. Will big risks lead to a bigger payout?

Web3 gold rush with risks

Even though global market instability increased, driven by the international macroeconomic downturn, adventurers still gravitate toward the goldfield. Recently, the Ethereum Merge, a historic upgrade casting aside proof-of-work with promises of massive environmental benefits, has brought opportunities for risk-free arbitrage. One of the hacker teams claimed to have made nearly 10,000 ETHPoW (about $0.2 million) in this arbitrage. 

However, it’s just swings and roundabouts. The hacked incident on BNB Token Hub, a cross-chain bridge connecting the BNB Beacon Chain and BNB Chain, resulted in huge losses by issuing 2 million additional BNB ($570 million), the entire chain was “paused” before the hacker could make off with their exploits. The hacker only managed to snag around $127 million off the chain.

Regarding both events, OKLink Audit group also provides insights from on-chain data analysis, revealing these mysterious stories.
