Tellor Tolen V1 upgrade fails and the cost of Tellor (TRB)

You have also heard of a Tellor system crashing a system error when upgrading to v2.6.1. So what is the real cause? And how is TRB affected?

The reason that leads to “dramatic” from Tellor

On February 15, 2021, Tellor encountered a technical problem with the versioning process for the system. The implementation of this upgrade would normally have to be supported and voted by all Voters in order to be approved to the upline.

They had to pay a lot of fees for the miners in the system. The story here is, the switch to an invalid proxy address with no functionality, freezes the whole system. All user’s TRB tokens have been temporarily locked for a while.

Where did Tellor system malfunctions originate?

Tellor was previously equipped with an Admin key, a function that gave the operator full control over any amount of money in the system data. Once anyone owns the Admin key, they can own this function, easier to say, it is similar to the house key of the brother where the property is kept.

So Tellor wants to control all the information, deployed using this function, which has high risks of information security and can be hacked at any time.

The voter-voted v2.6.1 upgrade (with expensive Gas fees) is redirected to an invalid proxy address. All have no results after that, this failure has caused the price of TRB to plunge severely.

TRB values ​​were severely reduced

Because of the inadequacy of the system upgrade, from a potential plan, Tellor accidentally created a drama for TRB’s “fate”.

I observed, there are quite a few brothers who have tried to sell off their assets because they thought that the price of TRB will continue to decrease, these jobs inadvertently caused an imbalance in supply and demand in the system, leading to price. More and more reduce.

TRB returns to the track at a faster speed than in the beginning

At that time, many brothers texted themselves to ask for advice on whether to hold or let go of TRB. But with this market, situations like that cannot confirm anything in the future.

Indeed, just a few days after the announcement of Tellor’s fixed issue on Twitter, the system updates were more successful than expected by the dev team. TRB Token is once again back on track with this ATH in early 2021 price of $ 80.93.

According to statistics from Coingecko
