In the vast landscape of DeFi and blockchain technology, vigilance and security cannot be overstated. As we’ve previously highlighted, despite a decrease in frequency, crypto attacks still accounted for an alarming loss of $3.6 billion in 2022 across 167 incidents. Predominantly, these attacks capitalized on vulnerabilities in DeFi projects, often preventable with better-audited contracts. Today, we’re here to discuss the critical importance of audits and reiterate our unwavering commitment to them.
Why Audits still Matter in 2023
At the core of every DeFi and blockchain operation, we find smart contracts. These scripts, acting as self-executing contracts with the terms directly written into the code, must be flawless. If not, they risk exploitation by malicious users. Audits, therefore, serve multiple functions. They protect investments by certifying the safety of code before users deposit funds. They mitigate risks, bolster security, and minimize losses.
Remember QANPlatform, Rabby, Mango Markets, and Temple DAO in October 2022? These four alone totaled $115 million in stolen funds!
Such breaches underscore the importance of thorough audits.
Audits, much more than just Validation
The process of an audit goes beyond mere code validation. It also provides expert advice on designing smart contracts. But an audit’s role isn’t limited to just that…
The Bigger Picture: Technical Issues and Interoperability
Even with impeccable smart contracts, vulnerabilities could reside on the website hosting these contracts. These flaws could potentially be exploited, such as redirecting users to a malicious site that prompts them to enter their keys. Therefore, an audit enhances user experience, facilitates integration, and ensures proper decentralization.
Audits: The Future Standard
While audits are not obligatory today, they symbolize a project’s quality seal, assuring its users that renowned companies have meticulously examined the code, its structure, and its effectiveness. As blockchain legislation becomes increasingly prevalent worldwide, audits will likely become a norm, mirroring ISO/TC307 standards found in various sectors. It is wise to be prepared for this eventuality.
Building Credibility Through Audits
Audits also contribute to establishing a solid brand image. By opting for professional auditing companies and investing in user security, you can build a sustainable reputation and credibility.
