Quantstamp is building a new standard for blockchain security

About Quantstamp

Quantstamp is a Y Combinator backed security company with a mission to secure and drive the mainstream adoption of Smart Contracts.

We are building a protocol that aims to help blockchain developers and projects around the world use its technology to perform cost-effective security audits on their contracts. Quantstamp’s team boasts decades of combined experience in software security, formal verification, and static analysis, with over 500 Google scholar citations.

To date, Quantstamp has secured hundreds of millions of dollars of transaction value in smart contracts issued by leading blockchain projects around the world with our white glove security auditing services.

As a proponent of the blockchain ecosystem, Quantstamp works with core infrastructure projects, community initiatives such as the Ethereum Community Fund, and funds blockchain research at leading universities such as the National University of Singapore and MIT.

Quantstamp has three major teams:

The Protocol Team comprises software engineers (including PhDs), research engineers, and blockchain researchers. This is the core of the company, and they are actively working on the protocol we described in the whitepaper.

The Web Team builds web products, including a demo version of the automated auditor. This product was our first attempt at creating a user interface for customers to easily run audits. This team is not building the protocol.

The Auditing Team consists of security and engineering experts (including PhDs). They perform manual audits for several reasons: to train our engineers about smart contract security, and to bring in revenue, which supports the Protocol and Web team.
