Notable Audits

RAI by Reflexer Labs


RAI is a non-pegged, ETH backed stable asset built by Reflexer Labs. RAI is designed to be protected from drastic market shock with minimized governance, providing a new way to earn APY while reducing volatility for DeFi users.

Zora

Zora is a marketplace to buy, sell, and trade limited-edition goods. Backed by VTF Capital and Variant Fund, Zora is building tools for creators to issue tokens around their creative practices and transferring power from corporations and platforms back to artists. By tokenizing these goods, prices can be dynamic and fractionally traded. 


Cryptex Finance


Cryptex is making waves by giving TCAP token holders real-time price exposure to the entire $1 trillion crypto market. TCAP is a decentralized stablecoin representative of the entire cryptocurrency complex by total market capitalization. 

Collaborations


MOBI


For any revolutionary technology to be adopted, standards and specifications are critical in building the infrastructure needed to create products and services that can work together. Through the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI), Quantstamp is collaborating with major names like Ford, Honda, and USAA to develop standards for smart mobility blockchain adoption. Learn more about MOBI and the work being done to facilitate the development of the transportation infrastructure of tomorrow. 


World Economic Forum


Quantstamp is contributing to a World Economic Forum working group that aims to help policymakers and central banks understand the critical issues involved with developing a central bank digital currency. This is not the first time that Quantstamp has worked with the World Economic Forum—Quantstamp also collaborated with the WEF in their effort to study blockchain’s ability to reduce corruption in government procurement in Colombia. Read more about Quantstamp’s work with the WEF in our recent blog post.

TRU Group


TRU creates digital products taking advantage of all the benefits of blockchain technology. Quantstamp and TRU recently signed an alliance to bring the benefits that blockchain technology offers to Latin America and the world. This agreement is designed to try to expand Quantstamp services throughout Latin America and TRU services globally, creating bridges for the construction of a more decentralized internet with security as a fundamental goal.
