Compensation Page Walk Through

The page consists of three sections: the overview, the pre-attack net value, and the post-attack adjustments. Each section serves a unique purpose and is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your loss value.

We hope that this brief description helps you navigate the page more effectively!


The overview section provides you with essential information about your liability, recovered funds in the first compensation, and the amount of compensation you can expect to receive. Your liability is determined by adding together the “Pre-attack Net Value” and the “Post-attack”.

For a more detailed breakdown of our calculation process, please refer to the following sections.

Pre-attack Net Value

The Pre-attack Net Value section contains a list of your deposit on the main pool, your USP balance, and USP debt at the pre-attack timestamp. Following values have been used to calculate the net value for each user:

  • User’s deposited amount of USP in the main pool
  • User’s deposited amount of USDC in the main pool
  • User’s deposited amount of USDC.e in the main pool
  • User’s deposited amount of USDT in the main pool
  • User’s deposited amount of USDT.e in the main pool
  • User’s deposited amount of BUSD in the main pool
  • User’s deposited amount of DAI.e in the main pool
  • USP balance in user’s wallet
  • USP debt for those who have a borrowing position

To keep things simple, we’re assuming that all stablecoins, including USP, had a value of $1 at the pre-attack timestamp. To calculate your pre-attack net value, we used the following formula:

Pre-attack net value = sum of main pool LP token amount + USP balance – USP Debt

As an example, let’s consider Alice, who has deposited 1000 USDC as collateral in the main pool, borrowed 400 USP, and purchased 200 additional USP, bringing her total USP balance to 600.

To calculate Alice’s pre-attack net value, we use the following formula:

Net Value = Deposited stablecoins including USP + USP Balance — USP Debt — Stability Fee

Using the values from Alice’s account, we can calculate her pre-attack net value as follows:

Net Value = 1000 (from her deposited 1000 USDC) + 600 (from her 600 USP balance) — 400.02 (her 400 USP debt plus stability fee) = 1199.98

Therefore, Alice’s pre-attack net value in the protocol is 1199.98.

Post-attack Adjustment

After the attack, there were many actions taken by users that may have affected their net value. For example, users may have purchased USP at a lower price or repaid their USP borrow position at a higher stability fee. To ensure fair compensation, we have manually examined all post-attack actions on a case-by-case basis, and recorded them in this section.

The post-attack actions taken by users can be categorized as follows:

  • Swap stable to USP (Arbitrage)
    Adjustment: The amount of stables that are used to swap for USP will be added to the “pre-attack net value”.
  • Swap USP to stable (Panic Sell)
    Adjustment: The amount of other stables should be subtracted from the “pre-attack net value”.
  • Repay
    No adjustment is needed as users are not charged the stability fee after the attack. The USP amount they repaid would be refunded as they are already included in the pre-attack snapshot.
  • Deposit stables (not including USP) to the main pool
    Adjustment: The deposited amount of stablecoin will be added to the “pre-attack net value”.
  • Deposit USP to the main pool
    No adjustment is needed as the USP they had were included in the pre-attack snapshot.
  • Withdraw stables from the main pool
    Adjustment: The amount of withdrawn stablecoin will be subtracted from the “pre-attack net value”.
  • Withdraw USP from the main pool
    No adjustment is needed.
