Security Innovation Unveils New Blockchain CTF and Hacking Competition


Wilmington, MA – February 28, 2019 – Security Innovation, an authority in software security assessment and training, today announced the release of brand-new challenges to its Blockchain Capture the Flag (CTF). Starting Friday March 1, players can compete to find all the vulnerabilities in a CTF competition and win “cash” (blockchain tokens) prizes.

Blockchain CTF is a Decentralized App containing vulnerable smart contracts with business use case ranging from decentralized trust funds and open source lottery systems, to ICOs and automated royalty agreements. Players exploit vulnerabilities to steal fake testnet ETH and earn points.  Since its launch last year, thousands of transactions have been conducted.  The 2nd-generation contains new challenges and an upgraded game harness and user experience.

“The Security Innovation Blockchain CTF has proven to be an incredible resource for developers and security experts to test their skills with practical exploitation challenges,” said Mick Ayzenberg, Blockchain Center of Excellence (CoE) Lead at Security Innovation and Blockchain CTF creator.  “Given it’s still an emerging technology, this demonstrates the demand for educational resources for Blockchain smart contract security.”
