☠️ Most DeFi Protocols Don’t Recover from Hacks – – BSC News
We have a sobering analysis for you today — according to data we crunched, DeFi protocols that suffer hacks rarely recover, even if they keep building. In better news for open source development, Tornado Cash developer Alexey Pertsev will be released on April 26 after spending 9 months in jail without a trial. BTC and ETH deepened their dive Friday evening and are down more than 10% in the past 7 days.

Most DeFi Protocols Fade After They’re Hacked, Analysis Shows
TLDR A survey of the top five hacks in dollar terms shows that each protocol’s total value locked is down by at least 96 since it was hacked. Overall TVL across DeFi decreased significantly less relative to each protocol’s TVL loss since each hack, suggesting that it’s not just depressed asset prices that are responsible for the dips.
The reputational hit a protocol takes is particularly hard to surmount in DeFi, where users may already be wary about interacting with a sector that’s rife with exploits and rug pulls. Trust in the project takes a hit even if the team sticks around and continues to build.

Tranchess is a structured asset management protocol that offers liquid staking on both Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain. Liquid staking allows users to earn staking rewards while their assets remain liquid, which they can use in other DeFi investments.
Tranchess mints liquid tokens equivalent to the amount of staked ETH or BNB (qETH or nQueen) and receives rewards as proxy validators. The NAV of these tokens increases with the value of the staked asset, including the yields from staking. Liquidity pools provided by both Tranchess and partners allows users to trade their liquid tokens for the staked asset with ease.
Tranchess is unique in offering a tranche mechanism that allows users to split their liquid tokens into BISHOP and ROOK tokens. The ROOK token represents a high-risk, high-return strategy where users can take leveraged long positions on ETH, BNB, and BTC, whilst BISHOP represents a market neutral or stable coin like structure. Tranchess uses a combination of its Rebalance model and Time-Weighted Average Price (TWAP) to minimize any market risk to its ecosystem.
Tranchess is a DeFi protocol that provides a differential layer of financial products and services by offering risk tranche options for investors with different risk levels. Tranchess’ novel tranche twists, QUEEN, ROOK and BISHOP, are unavailable on other liquid staking platforms.

Tornado Cash Developer To Be Released Next Week
TLDR Alexey Pertsev, a developer of the sanctioned privacy mixer Tornado Cash, will be released from jail on April 26 but will remain under house arrest until his trial, according to CryptoCanal founder Eléonore Blanc.
The crypto community and privacy advocates welcomed the news of Pertsev’s upcoming release. “Still sickening that the dude had to sit in jail for months to finally go “free.” Writing code and ideas shouldn’t be punishable,” one user commented.
