Crypto Daily Spotlight

Harmony plans to mint 4.97B ONE tokens to reimburse hack victims.

Brief introduction: Harmony is a layer-1 blockchain that uses sharding and Effective Proof of Stake to achieve scalability, security and decentralisation. The network was launched in 2019 and features trustless cross-chain bridges and four shards, which process transactions in parallel.

Why it matters:

  • The team behind the Harmony blockchain project has proposed minting up to 4.97 billion of its native token, ONE, to compensate victims of the $100 million Horizon Bridge hack in June

  • The community’s responses already appears to be extremely negative, with most comments on Harmony’s community page and Twitter voicing concerns over the proposal; a similar method of recovery was employed by the Terra eco-system following its $40 billion meltdown in May

  • The Harmony team stated that the reimbursement would be in the form of ONE tokens and span over a three-year period due to the treasury’s limited ability to provide immediate reimbursement
