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.

Casa startup, specializing in the creation of secure storage systems for private keys, introduced a mobile bitcoin application Sats App, which makes it easy to manage Lightning-node.

Sats App is positioned as a non-custodial bitcoin wallet "with unique functions." According to Casa CEO Jeremy Welch, the SatsBack reward program will soon be launched, under which users will receive small amounts in BTC. For example, for connecting an application and a Casa Node device to each other, the user will receive 20,000 Satoshi.

Features are focused on increasing adoption of bitcoin and lightning nodes. You will be able to earn bitcoin if you don’t have a Casa node, but you will be able to earn bitcoin faster if you have a node.
