51 % Attacks

Occurs when an entity obtains a majority stake in a governance token and attempts to seize control of the project’s assets.

Network icon

Centralization Weak Points

Projects that concentrate significant power within a single individual or organization are susceptible to risks such as compromised private keys or unethical behavior by core team members.

Risk-Free Value

When the total value governed by a project surpasses the value of its governance token, it becomes profitable to assume control of the governance token and push malicious proposals to exploit the DAO.

When decision-making processes, power structures, and guidelines are unclear, users become confused, leaving the project vulnerable to attacks.
