Curve Finance, a leading decentralized exchange known for its liquidity and cost efficiency, has found itself grappling with significant challenges in the aftermath of a major exploit. On July 30, the exchange suffered an exploit amounting to more than $47 million, attributed to a Vyper reentrancy lock malfunction.

Following the exploit, the token’s price experienced a sharp decline, dropping by almost 20% since the attack. Recent reports have surfaced, indicating that Michael Egorov, the founder of the exchange Curve Finance, has allegedly taken loans secured by approximately 47% of the total circulating CRV.

According to on-chain analyst Lookonchain, Sun completed the purchase of nearly 5 million CRV tokens from a wallet labeled “ Founder” through an over-the-counter transaction. The acquisition was carried out at an average price of $0.4 per token, amounting to just over $2.3 million.
