Alpaca Finance using Forta for operational monitoring

Article by Forta Network May. 11, 2022

Forta is excited to announce Alpaca Finance is using Forta to monitor system-critical operations. 

Alpaca Finance is the largest lending protocol allowing leveraged yield farming on BNB Chain and Fantom. Alpaca helps lenders earn safe and stable yields, and offers borrowers undercollateralized loans for leveraged yield farming positions, vastly multiplying their farming principals and resulting profits.

When Alpaca started using Forta, they were impressed with the flexibility it offers. Because Forta Detection Bots live in Docker containers, it gives teams like Alpaca the freedom to create truly custom monitoring they can’t replicate with other monitoring solutions. 

Teams that need more sophisticated, bespoke monitoring have historically had to set up in-house monitoring, which requires the core team to manage the infrastructure piece as well. 

“Forta allowed us to deploy a monitoring service without having to set up all the infrastructure ourselves. It saved us resources and is very useful.” – Spicysquid, Head of Engineering at Alpaca Finance.

Today, Alpaca is using Forta to monitor feeder operations, Chainlink keeper balances, unusually high transaction volumes in certain areas of the protocol, and discrepancies between DEX pricing and oracle pricing.
