Sturdy Finance Claim Announcement

*Lastest Update on Claim Eligibility on 04/07/2023

Sturdy Finance has been exploited on June 12 at 1:06 AM UTC resulting in 504ETH loss.

InsurAce’s Advisory Board has completed the investigation and recommends that this is not a Claimable Risk Event in relation to Sturdy Finance, following our Smart Contract Vulnerability Cover T&C, due to the following reasons below:

Root Cause from a Third Party

  • Root cause: Read-only Reentrancy vulnerability from Balancer wstETH/WETH Pool
  • Reference: Balancer Forum
  • The vulnerability is on Balancer’s smart contracts and not on Sturdy’s smart contracts.

Indirect Cause of Loss Due to Oracle Failure

  • Sturdy has issued a post-mortem indicating that the contributing factor resides in the custom oracle they have built.  Based on the Cover Terms 5.1n, losses due to oracles (external or integrated) are not covered.

Due to the complicated nature of the exploit and the conflict in findings, users who submit their claims with accurate proof of loss will be eligible for voting. This ensures transparency and involves the community in determining if these claims should be paid out.

We will offer an extensive investigation report for all claims submitted before voting begins.

Claim Eligibility

  • Users held an active cover on June 12 at 1:06 AM UTC
  • Users who have lent WETH on the protocol and suffered a material loss (the resulting loss will factor in any amount they have borrowed (if any) and any compensation plans to affected users).

Claim Deadline:

Before the expiration of the earlier:

  • 21 days after this announcement – 24 July 2023 23:59:59 GMT+8; or
  • 15 days after the Cover Period has expired
