The current hack against Euler Finance is just another in a long string of hacks over the past few years. Given that almost all decentralized finance projects open-source their code, hackers are able to find ways to obtain assets.

Headquartered in the UK, Euler Finance builds a non-custodial agreement and is governed by a DAO. The $EUL token is down as much as 61% on the day to $2.33. At press time, the price has recovered to $3.36.
