TL;DR

CertiK has completed a comprehensive security audit of 14 Merlin smart contracts and found nil critical, major, or medium issues. Thirteen minor and two informational findings were flagged, all of which were promptly resolved or addressed by the Merlin team. Merlin is safe and secure.

To our Merlin community,

It has been quite a day for the Merlin team and community as the Merlin minter experienced an economic exploit that led to excess tokens being minted.

No vaults were breached. All funds are safe. We have currently paused all Merlin minting. Vaults are auto-compounding as per usual, with their rewards being in the native token only.

Summary

The incident was not a flashloan attack, as the development team had implemented security measures to mitigate the possibility of this. The incident related to an exploit of the getReward code as a large amount of CAKE tokens…


DeFi operates as a permissionless, decentralized, and transparent financial ecosystem built on top of blockchain networks. For this, the DeFi space has attracted an explosive amount of interest and the reinvention of legacy financial products. On the other hand, the DeFi infrastructure also opens itself up to vulnerabilities. This includes flash loan attacks, one of the most common methods of exploits amongst the DeFi protocols as seen in recent incidents.

What are flash loans and what are their characteristics?

Flash Loans are the first uncollateralized loan option in DeFi. Flash Loans enable you to borrow instantly and easily, no collateral needed provided that the liquidity is returned to the…

📑 Background

The rise of decentralized finance (DeFi) has been an incredible boon for the entire cryptocurrency sector. Despite the surge in DeFi products on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), there are no functional farming projects that truly facilitate users holistically.

🔮️ What is Merlin

Merlin combines yield maximization with functionality, delivering an all-encompassing DeFi platform.

We recognize the exponential benefit in auto-compounding and the value in accumulating key cryptocurrencies (aka. BTCB, ETH, BNB, CAKE, etc.), so we’ve built:

  • A yield aggregator that helps you auto-compound your assets
  • An ecosystem that helps your earn more key cryptocurrencies (aka. BTCB, ETH, BNB, CAKE, etc.) by staking $MERL
