Stefan Beyer on Smart Contract Audits

What We Discuss With Stefan Beyer

With the launch of Ethereum in 2014, for the first time ever, we could program decentralized applications that run on a blockchain.

But in order to become mainstream, their inherent security is of paramount importance. If poorly coded, these smart contracts are vulnerable to hacking. With a significant amount of funds locked into these smart contracts, the losses can be irreversible for the investors.

Smart contracts can be transformative but the only way to get there is if people know with certainty that money cannot be stolen from their smart contract. One way to mitigate the risk of having smart contracts exploited by hackers is by having smart contracts audits.

In this episode, we discuss;

  • Smart contract audits and common mistakes for developers writing smart contracts;
  • Planning a smart contract audit and how should the client prepare;
  • The evolution of smart contracts and new concerns faced by auditors;
  • Vulnerabilities of smart contracts leading to hacks;
  • Where to start to become a smart contract auditor and blockchain programming languages available;
  • And many more…
