Decentralized finance (DeFi) continues to see growth and resilience despite recent cyber attacks.

The recent $73 million hack of Curve Finance, a leading decentralized exchange, initially caused some fluctuations. Total value locked (TVL) in DeFi briefly dropped around 8%.

However, Forkast Labs data shows that revenue generated by DeFi apps has held steady or even increased. This suggests investors remain confident in the long-term potential of decentralized finance.

The Curve Finance attack does highlight the inherent risks in the emerging DeFi space. Hackers stole over $3 billion from DeFi protocols in 2021. So cybersecurity is an ongoing concern.

Yet the swift recovery in TVL and continued revenue growth indicates DeFi may be building immunity to isolated attacks. Investors seem to take exploits in stride as unavoidable growing pains in such a nascent industry.

DeFi’s community has also responded well to the Curve hack, with most stolen funds already returned. This responsiveness helps reinforce trust in DeFi’s future.

While risks persist, decentralized finance appears to be steadfast in its rise and continuing to convert skeptics. The fundamentals seem solid despite some volatility brought by bad actors.
