Watching Watchmen: Meet smart contract auditors

Smart contracts are the heart of the Ethereum blockchain. Every dApp we engage with contains a smart contract created to dictate how it works at the most basic level. It is safe to say we should expect smart contract creators to produce sound and stable smart contracts. But the proverb, trust but verify, exists for a reason. Smart contract auditors are the independent verification mechanism to determine if the intentions and goals of the contract’s creator were rendered into the language of the blockchain. This verification is essential. …


It’s been 3 months since we launched SolidStamp, an on-chain registry of smart contract audits. It’s time to share some of the learnings we have gathered thus far as well as to announce and explain a few modifications to the service we’re unveiling today.

Smart contracts are becoming the most critical piece of the Ethereum ecosystem as more and more ethers begin to flow through the sophisticated contract logic. The security and viability of the entire platform depends on the quality of the code that is behind all of the tokens, multi-sig wallets, exchanges, prediction markets and all the other contracts.

Crafting a viable and secure smart contract is no small task. Currently, there are few software developers who fully understand all of the nuances and pitfalls connected with building a viable smart contract. For these contracts, glitches affect not just contract developers but…
