Over the last couple of years there has been a lot of talk about the fact that blockchain technology cannot be hacked and that it is as secure as security could be defined. As a result, of that many have started discussing that sooner rather than later financial guarantors and intermediaries will not be necessary. However, couple of recent events have demonstrated the opposite as recently hackers have managed to successfully stage a 51% attack or gain more than 51% of the computing power of a blockchain network. Coinbase, the crypto exchnage, was recently under attack and claims that they have not lost any coins. Gate.io admitted losing about 200 000 USD. There are are also many security risks in the smart contract space. This full story published by MIT Technology review is  worth a read. Take away for me is that although new technology can help reduce costs and streamline operations it is often oversold and brings unknown risks.
