Decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol Platypus Finance has created a portal that enables users to view how much the platform owes them following the recent $9.1 million exploit.
On Feb. 16, the DeFi protocol suffered a flash loan attack, pushing the Platypus USD (USP) stablecoin to break its peg with the U.S. dollar. At the time, Platypus confirmed a loss of around $8.5 million from its main pool. The firm also said they contacted the hacker to negotiate a bounty. A post-mortem report from Platypus auditor Omniscia noted that the attack was possible because of code in the wrong order.
After the hack, the team worked on a compensation plan for users’ funds. On Feb. 23, the team announced that they are seeking to return around 78% of the main pool funds by reminting frozen stablecoins. The team also confirmed second and third incidents, which led to another $667,000 exploited, bringing total losses of around $9.1 million.
According to the latest update from the protocol, they launched a page that lets viewers check how much compensation they can get from the platform. The page contains several sections that allow users to better understand how much they are owed after the exploit. This includes an overview, a pre-attack net value and post-attack adjustments.
We have just released a page where you can check the value of your loss and expected compensation for our first claim.

The team also highlighted that if anyone finds errors within the calculations, they could submit a form and supporting evidence to back their claim before March 3, 11:59 pm UTC. The DeFi protocol pointed out that they will finalize the calculations once all feedback is received. After that, the first compensation will be available for users to claim in March.

The team also said that refunds are currently their top priority, and they’re working to recover any remaining funds.
Meanwhile, French police arrested two suspects related to the hack and seized around $222,000 worth of crypto assets on Feb. 25. According to Platypus, the arrests were supported by crypto sleuth ZachXBT and the Binance exchange.
