What is smart contract audit?

A smart contract audit is an extensive methodical examination and analysis of a smart contract’s code that is used to interact with a cryptocurrency or blockchain. This process is conducted to discover errors, issues and security vulnerabilities in the code in order to suggest improvements and ways to fix them. Generally, smart contract audits are necessary, because most of the contracts deal with financial assets and/or valuable items.

What did CertiK audit?

On the 11th of December CertiK security engineers took on the initial review of the code starting the auditing process. We requested the engineers to review the code implementation of our main ERC-20 contract to support our beloved $MPC token.

The in-depth investigation of the smart contract in question included Static Analysis and Manual Review techniques. The auditing process focused on the following considerations:

  • Testing smart contract against both common and uncommon attack vectors.
  • Assessing the codebase to ensure compliance with current best practices and industry standards.
  • Ensuring contract logic meets the specifications and intentions of the client.
  • Cross-referencing contract structure and implementation against similar smart contracts produced by industry leaders.
  • Through a line-by-line manual review of the entire codebase.

Considering OctaFarm followed the best practices to deploy its native ERC-20 contract, we will share preliminary report once finalized.
