A bug in an older model of crypto lending protocol Aave is obstructing customers from interacting with Wrapped Ether (WETH), Tether (USDT), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) or Wrapped Matic (WMATIC) swimming pools on Aave V2 Polygon, stopping belongings from being withdrawn from them, based on a Could 19 proposal that makes an attempt to repair the bug by a patch. The proposal says that customers are presently unable to “provide extra of these belongings, borrow, repay, or withdraw.”

Though withdrawals are presently not possible, the staff said that funds are “completely secure,” because the bug could be fastened after a governance vote.

The bug solely impacts Aave V2 on Polygon. AaveV3, which is the newest model, stays unaffected, as does V2 deployments to Ethereum or Avalanche.

The damaged code arose due to a Could 16 rate of interest curve patch utilized to all deployments of V2. The Polygon implementation of V2 makes use of a barely totally different checklist of operate definitions (known as an “interface”) for its charge technique contracts when put next with the Ethereum and Avalanche implementations. However the rate of interest curve adjustments didn’t have in mind this distinction, inflicting the bug to develop solely within the Polygon deployment.

The brand new proposal asks Aave’s governing physique, Aave DAO, to approve code adjustments to solely the Polygon model to repair the patch. Voting is scheduled to start on Could 20, and can proceed till Could 23, the proposal said.
