Hacking DeFi protocols are one of the significant obstacles that are preventing DeFi mainstream adoption. As a result, an ambitious decentralized finance project aims to alleviate this problem.
What is Lossless Protocol About?
The Lossless protocol is a security project which claims to be able to avoid fraudulent transactions. It can then reverse them to return stolen funds to the victims of DeFi hacks.
It does this by having the token creators insert its code into their protocol to mitigate losses due to exploits. The protocol uses a set of fraud identification parameters to flag spurious transactions.
Returning Hacked DeFi Funds
Lossless was put into action recently when it managed to recover ETH stolen from the Cream Finance protocol. In a tweet on October 4, Lossless showed a transaction where 5,152.5 ETH was rescued from a hack in late August.

On the other hand, Cream Finance stated that Pascal Caversaccio and Lossless earned 50% of the bounty for their work.
Thanks to them we were able to track down and identify the hacker who we immediately engaged.
