Auditors with expertise in OVM and cross-domain messaging to secure digital assetsrequest a quote
Crypto enthusiasts love Optimism because of its lightning-fast speeds and low fees. The Optimism virtual machine is built on top of Ethereum, allowing L2 Rollup to process transactions off-chain. Because Optimism is one of the fastest growing smart contract platforms, it is a common target for phishing scams and exploits. Protecting digital assets in Optimism smart contracts requires expertise in cross-domain messaging and OVM functionality.
Critical security vulnerabilities may put your project’s existence at risk. The biggest hacks are mostly caused attributable to code security flaws.
Get advice on how to make your project run more smoothly. Apart from security flaws, our specialists detect bugs affecting product logic.
The audit is your answer to the question “Is this project a secure choice? The incident rate among the projects audited by Hacken is <1%.
Smart contract audit will secure your first steps in the industry. Don’t let the security gap affect your rapid growth. With the help of external professionals, your security level will correspond to your growth targets.
Smart contract audit will prevent you from unexpected delays when following the roadmap. By working with a security vendor you will let your employees pay greater attention to product development.
You are the most lucrative target for hackers. The more audits you complete, the lower the chance for hackers to find weak points in your product. An Independent check by a trusted security vendor is the confirmation of your strong focus on security.

Audit duration is agreed upon with the customer during the negotiation phase. We start the audit immediately after a client provides us with all required documentation.
The price of the audit is determined at the stage of negotiations. It is based only on the audit complexity and scope. There are no hidden fees and penalties.
Hacken is the European vendor that started auditing projects in 2017 and since then we have developed our own audit quality standards and methodology.
Hacken audits are integrated into CoinGecko, CoinMarketCap, and CER.live. Thus, it serves as an indicator of your reliability for users.
We are real individuals. You can find our team members on LinkedIn/Twitter as well as meet us during industry events.
Hacken has a <1% incident rate among the audited projects and 0% of scam ventures.
You submit the required documentation and get the estimation of the audit scope, timeline, and price.
After the end of initial testing, our specialists will provide you with a report specifying detected vulnerabilities with recommendations on their fixing
After you introduce fixes, our team will perform a remediation check (1 check is included in the price) to ensure that all changes are correct
Integrate Hacken audit into your website and see it displayed on CER.live, CMC, and CoinGecko. Your audit will be mentioned on the Hacken-owned and partner media
Head of Smart Contracts Audits Department
“There are 2 auditors who check your code separately from each other. Their results are then verified by a senior auditor. Thus, it a triple-check of your code minimizing the risk that any issue may remain undetected”.
Hacken methodology is accepted by CoinGecko, CoinMarketCap, and Cer.live. We apply a four-stage approach to code review and analysis as it’s the most critical part. First, we run automatic tests to check all possible states of the contract and catch simple issues. Second, two separate auditors conduct independent line-to-line code reviews and analyses. Third, the lead auditor manually checks the parallel audits and performs an additional code review. Finally, auditors share the results and work out all disputable points. The smart contract audit by Hacken is so effective because it relies on several auditors to detect hidden weaknesses. We encourage our customers to go through our methodology before the audit and discuss any concerns and suggestions.
After the audit, you will be able to integrate the badge “audited by Hacken” into your website.
If your project meets Hacken’s partnership requirements, we will offer you an extended service package including marketing activities.

Smart contracts make up the foundation of crypto trading and decentralized finance. These are digital contracts that automatically execute transactions once predetermined conditions are met. Smart contracts are executed when certain pre-programmed conditions are met.
Smart contracts ensure safety, accuracy, and high speed of interaction. When predetermined conditions are met, the actions are executed. Smart contracts ensure trust and transparency between the parties involved and when correctly written they can ensure the ultimate security of transactions.
While Optimism smart contracts are written in Solidity, it has a different virtual machine than most EVMs. Optimism developed its own virtual machine called OVM. The OVM is a fully-featured, EVM-compatible execution environment built for use in Layer 2 systems. The OVM is a prerequisite for a rollup chain where transactions happen off-chain. You only have to go through Ethereum’s consensus once. Thus, OVM offers great speeds and low fees. Moreover, smart contracts can be written in Solidity, while interaction with the chain can happen via the Web3 API.
Hacken auditors have expertise in cross-domain messaging and OVM functionality. Our auditors consider a high-level overview of Optimism smart contracts. We understand how rollups work at the code level. Hacken security specialists pay attention to the most important parts of the code, including the code for the L1-L2 bridge, code for cross-domain messaging, code for transaction batching/rollup, and code for handling disputes.
