Block wallet addresses that are deemed at-risk using the DeFi platform Oasis A new Discord post from Thursday’s community states that decentralized financing (DeFi) platform has announced that only sanctioned addresses can access the application. Due to the new terms of service, wallets that have been flagged as high-risk are no longer allowed to use for managing positions or withdrawing funds.
