Abstract

According to blockchain forensics firm CipherTrace, DeFi ecosystem hacks cost protocols and their users $474 million in 2021. To help prevent such attacks, protocols need a decentralized oracle mechanism like Chainlink for secure and accurate price feeds and market data.

In this session, learn how decentralized borrowing protocol, Liquity, integrated the Chainlink ETH/USD Data Feed to secure collateral, redemptions, and liquidations while protecting users against price feed exploits like flash loan attacks.
