Our blockchain researchers will make your protocol more secure and resistant to real-world cyberattacksrequest a quote
A blockchain protocol governs the creation, validation, and communication of blocks and transactions within a decentralized digital ledger. With a Blockchain Protocol Audit, we can research the inner workings to discover inherent vulnerabilities and analyze core subsystems & internal architecture to understand and fix vulnerabilities.
Critical vulnerabilities may put at risk that projects built on your protocol.

Audit is the answer to the question “Is this Layer-1 project secure?”
Modular blockchains have stand-alone purposes, so other blockchains can tap into them. They can be a settlement layer, consensus layer, or any other blockchain layer. They often have complex architecture due to their robust systems.
Highly technical DeFi bridges often suffice as protocols. They always have millions of funds in their vaults. Prime target of hackers.
Monolithic blockchains stack up the consensus layer, settlement layer, execution layer, and application layer within a single blockchain.Their architecture is always more complex and susceptible to hacks.

“Blockchain protocols are the foundation of Web3. Vulnerabilities in protocols can result in dozens of projects being exploited by bad actors. The security of all their users depends on the quality of the audit. It is a high level of responsibility that does not let us make any mistake”
1. Chain Configuration: Blockchain configuration parameters review (i.e., milestones/forks versions epoch length, block per second rate)
2. Initial Supply: This is the stage where we review the Initial token allocations in a protocol.
3. Validator accounts: Extraction and identification of validator accounts and extraData field analysis.
4. Consensus: IBFT 2.0 Consensus review and attack scenarios analysis (i.e., liveness).
5. Initial code & smart contracts: Byte code integrity review, compiled solidity smart contracts vs byte code deployed at the genesis block.
6. White paper: White paper review and implementation.
We also run transaction, consensus, fuzz, and stress tests in the node to ensure 360-degree node security!
