Blockchain Introduces New Security Vulnerabilities
In 2018 alone, VCs invested over $4 billion in blockchain-related companies. The stakes are substantial and so is the risk. The problem? Blockchain is new, untested and misunderstood – specialized skills are desperately needed to ensure security best practices are established.
Our Blockchain CoE is led by one of the industry’s foremost experts in blockchain who has contributed to some of the most widely used blockchain security tools and has presented on securing smart contracts at Defcon, Trufflecon, New York Blockchain Week, and others. The company has delivered smart contract audits, decentralized application penetration testing, code reviews, and training for Stably.io, DigitalX, Metacash, Black Hat, and others.
Blockchain Smart Contract CTF
This free platform is a Decentralized App containing vulnerable smart contracts with various business use cases ranging from decentralized trust funds and open-source lottery systems to ICOs and automated royalty agreements. Players are challenged to exploit vulnerabilities commonly found in smart contracts to steal fake test net ETH and earn points. Hints are available when creativity is exhausted.
