Crypto Hacks Are Down and Hackers Tend to Return Stolen Money: TRM Labs Report

According to a report by blockchain intel firm TRM Labs, crypto hacks have decreased by 70% in Q1 of 2023 compared to the same period last year. The average hack size has also reduced from $30 million in 2022 to $10.5 million this year. Additionally, hackers are increasingly returning stolen funds and settling for "white hat" rewards from exploited projects. This could be due to increasing regulatory attention on crypto hacks and high-profile enforcement cases, making it harder for hackers to cash out stolen coins.

Why Ethereum is so dominant — and why it’s not going anywhere

Ethereum's dominance in the DeFi market has decreased from 90% in January 2021 to 49% in April 2022, but it still accounts for two-thirds of the value locked in DeFi. Interest in alternative blockchains has diminished due to rising rates, regulation, and improvements to Ethereum. Ethereum's rollups, or layer 2 blockchains, such as Arbitrum and Optimism, offer users access to Ethereum's security and decentralization at a fraction of the price. Alternative blockchains face a liquidity problem as users prefer native assets and Ethereum's network effects make it more attractive for new users.

Code is not speech: ‘Wild theories’ won’t protect DeFi developer Alexey Pertsev

The argument that "code is speech" and therefore protected under the First Amendment does not hold up in court, according to a legal paper by Kyle Langvardt, assistant professor of law at the University of Nebraska College of Law. Langvardt argues that the concept is being used to protect crypto businesses from regulation and that these arguments are "badly out of step with First Amendment case law and probably worthless in court." The paper comes as Tornado Cash developer Alexey Pertsev faces charges of facilitating the laundering of billions of dollars, with privacy advocates rushing to his defense using the "code is speech" argument. Langvardt says these arguments could help firms sidestep regulation and even debase the First Amendment.
