3 minutes

We proudly announce our partnership with Cointelegraph Acceleration, an accelerator program for innovative Web3 startups powered by the largest crypto media outlet. This collaboration positions Hacken as the technical due diligence partner for Cointelegraph Accelerator.

Key Details

According to Cointelegraph’s statement, Hacken will assess the security of accelerator applicants, advancing only the most secure projects. Cointelegraph Accelerator Participants will also receive preferential terms on Hacken’s audit services to enhance their security.

Addressing Web3 Security Challenges

The decentralized nature of Web3 offers transformative benefits, but it also brings significant security challenges. In 2023 alone, the industry saw losses of $1.9 billion due to scams and hacks. The first quarter of 2024 has already recorded losses of $824 million, projecting an annual loss of over $3 billion. Addressing these issues is critical to making Web3 a safer environment. Robust security measures, stakeholder collaboration, and user education are essential to reversing this trend.

Hacken’s Role in Cointelegraph Accelerator

As the technical due diligence partner, Hacken’s experts will conduct comprehensive evaluations of projects applying for the Cointelegraph Accelerator. Our assessment will cover:

  • Technical Documentation Quality: Ensuring all documentation is thorough, accurate, and clear.
  • Security Measures: Evaluating the robustness of security protocols and measures.
  • Code Quality: Analyzing code for quality, efficiency, and security.
  • Overall Project Technical Health: Assessing the technical foundation and sustainability of the projects.

After a thorough assessment, Hacken will provide detailed research papers to Cointelegraph Accelerator. These reports will aid in well-informed technical evaluations of program applicants.

Benefits for Accelerator Participants

Participants in the Cointelegraph Accelerator will benefit from preferential terms on audit and other technical services by one of the most reputable blockchain security auditors.
