One fine day you got an out of the box idea to build a DeFi project. You have successfully developed the project and to save it from any external threat, you got it audited.

But still there’s a doubt quotient haunting you day-in & day-out about whether the audit done was up to the mark or not!

Hence, whether you are an enterprise owning the DeFi project (or) a smart contract auditor, there remains a certain scope of value addition in the smart contract’s audit.

According to a report in 2016, existing auditing standards are, for a larger part, reactive in nature, responding to particular needs instead of anticipating the needs. The consequence of this is that these standards are always lagging.
