Providing a sense of assurance for contracts that have been deployed on the mainnet fills a gap in the current smart contract security ecosystem. Assurance of deployed contract correctness has been a goal of Quantstamp since we began on our mission, including as described in the whitepaper. To this end, we’re proud to present the Quantstamp Security Assurance Protocol.
Over the last eight months, Quantstamp has been developing and completed an alpha test of the Quantstamp Security Assurance Protocol (QSAP). The goals of this project include helping to increase confidence in the security of deployed smart contracts and mitigating the risk of losses due to security vulnerabilities. This effort is motivated by the inexorable reality that smart contracts may be exposed to unforeseeable attacks during the post-deployment stage, when the code is immutable.
This year, members of the Quantstamp team and some of our friends participated in the ETHDenver Hackathon. Our CEO Richard Ma, Poming Lee (myself), Nathan Frenette and Derek Alia entered the hackathon as “Beacon Thugs and Harmony” and hacked away at an implementation of the ETH 2.0 Beacon Chain.
