Name Origin

Tyche Owned Reserve (TOR) originated from Tyche, the Greek goddess of providence, luck and fate. Tyche was the governing tutelary deity who oversaw a city’s wealth and prosperity, as well as its fate. She is the daughter of Aphrodite and Zeus or Hermes in Greek mythology, and her role at the time was to deliver messages to humans about external occurrences beyond their control. [5]

Technology

The Hector Network utility token, $HEC was linked to the TOR stablecoin, and its price increased when there was a higher demand for TOR, due to supply adjustments. To maintain stability, TOR used a swap mechanism - 1 TOR could be exchanged for $1 worth of HEC at any time. If TOR's value dropped below $1, buyers could purchase it, redeem it for $1, and profit. This process boosted TOR demand, raising its price until it reached $1, ensuring stability through financial incentives. [4]

Hector Network's Liquidation

As a result of the breach, the team has postponed the redemption process. [10]

"Preliminarily, the redemption process is expected to resume when the investigation is complete and the redemption process has been fortified against further potential vulnerabilities. Hector Network is working tirelessly to address this, is committed to maintaining transparency throughout this process and will keep you updated on any developments" - the update concluded[10]
