Quantstamp Protocol Progress
The Quantstamp Protocol is why Quantstamp was started, so improving it is a fundamental mission for us. This month we made progress on the next version of the Quantstamp Protocol: we enhanced the UI, and are opening access to our documentation and code. In addition, we did extensive internal alpha-testing of Quantstamp Assurance, our post-deployment security project.
Open sourcing the protocol
Besides working to improve the protocol, we are also working to open access to it. Currently, we are refactoring our code and documenting it in preparation for this step. Open sourcing our protocol code is a whitepaper goal and provides transparency for users of the Quantstamp Protocol.
Quantstamp Assurance Protocol Alpha Testing
Quantstamp Assurance is a new project we are developing that aims to provide assurance of smart contract security even post-deployment. In February, we created an alpha version and performed extensive internal testing on a variety of smart contracts. This alpha test provided us a lot of valuable feedback which we’re using to improve and iterate our Quantstamp Assurance design.
In February, we completed our audit of the Crypto.com Chain. Crypto.com is the team behind the MCO Visa Card, a prepaid Visa card that allows users to spend cryptocurrencies easily and receive rewards. They recently announced the Crypto.com Chain, a public blockchain focused on facilitating mobile crypto payments. As described by Crypto.com, it allows for fast settlement and provides rewards for merchants and consumers who use it for transactions.
We were happy to audit the Crypto.com Chain smart contracts and help them in their mission of faster, easier online payments with lower fees. Auditing the Crypto.com Chain continues Quantstamp’s track record of helping secure projects aiming to improve mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
Besides the Beacon Chain, Quantstamp also audited the BuffiDAI token — the official cryptocurrency of ETHDenver.
The team was excited to audit ETHDenver’s local cryptocurrency, BuffiDAI. BuffiDAI is tied to the value of the DAI, a stablecoin created by MakerDAO. It was used successfully at ETHDenver to create a frictionless payment experience for attendees to purchase local products and services.
See it in action in this video, where our Community Manager Jared Harrill buys a sushi bowl at a food truck using BuffiDAI. Compared to using cash or credit cards, the transaction is much smoother. The chef never needs to stop what he’s doing to manage the payment, and he receives instant notification when the transaction goes through.
