Every month several important smart contract audits are performed by blockchain security companies like us. It is important to stay up to date with the latest findings in order to learn and improve protection processes. Following we will describe three recent and interesting findings:

The app would be built on top of and focused on AEternity State-Channel technologies. It should include a mobile phone application allowing users to register as merchants or customers and perform payments.
CoinFabrik was asked to audit the contracts for the Nahmii Token project. Firstly, we will provide a summary of our discoveries and secondly, we will show the details of our findings.
