Blockchain Security 

The firm’s value proposition comes from the indispensable need for blockchain security in the crypto space. In 2021, losses amounting to $1.3 billion due to hacks have been a major concern. With the growth of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) coupled with the need to bridge various chains, bridge-style attacks and flash loans attacks are becoming a real menace. 


Pre-deployment code audits by security firms such as Certik are becoming an essential checklist for all projects on the blockchain. Innovation in this space also means that blockchain security firms expand resources to keep themselves abreast of new developments.
