The Maker Foundation, a non-profit organization in partnership with Coinbase and the Zeppelin platform, conducted a second round of an audit of a MakerDAO network voting smart contract, during which a critical vulnerability was discovered. The developers initiated an urgent upgrade.

You are not in danger of losing your MKR if you own one of the ~190 addresses who have staked MKR in the current MakerDAO Governance Voting Contract, but you are advised to move your MKR out of the old contract and back into your personal wallet immediately.

However, the developers stressed that user funds remain secure, and the vulnerability has already been fixed. Those who do not participate in the voting weren't affected by the problem.

In the last vote on the additional collection was attended by 114 876 MKR (over $ 60 million).

Earlier it became known that a number of top managers left the Maker Foundation because of a conflict with the founder of the project, Rune Christensen, who allegedly made an attempt to centralize control over the Maker development fund.

Since the beginning of the year, Bitcoin has grown faster than traditional market assets, including oil, technology companies, real estate and gold. This conclusion was made by Binance Research in the new study "What Bear Market?"

Since the beginning of the year, the price of Bitcoin has grown by more than 50%, while oil - by 33%, tech stocks - by 18%. The price of gold in five months slipped by 1%.

Recently, however, some factors have emerged that may put pressure on the price of Bitcoin. Thus, the recovery of BTC growth slowed down somewhat amid news of a hacker attack on the popular Binance exchange itself, as a result of which 7,000 BTC ($ 40.5 million) were stolen.

Another potentially negative factor for the price of Bitcoin could be the upcoming IEO of the Bitfinex exchange, where Tether stablecoins will be used to purchase LEO tokens for $ 1 billion. It can lead to situation when large players can may actively sell BTC.
