In this week’s  #BlockchainThursday, we’ll introduce you to a blockchain-based auditing platform focused on the protection of decentralized finance (DeFi) platform users:

Introducing, a smart contract auditing platform

The Ethereum-based aims to help protect users of DeFi platforms by providing security reviews from top independent auditors, as well as optional smart contract “insurance” coverage on the audited contracts. In September 2022, the platform raised $4 million in a seed round led by early-stage venture firm Archetype.1 ecosystem: Protocols, Stakers, and Watsons

The platform’s ecosystem has three main participants: Protocols, Stakers, and Watsons. 

  • Protocols can come to to have their smart contracts reviewed by top security experts (as stated in the platform’s docs) and have the option to add coverage on the contracts. The coverage acts as a guarantee that if a critical bug is found in the smart contract, will have to pay out up to $10 million. This feature can help the user feel confident that the auditing process is thorough and that has a vested interest in ensuring each contract is secure.
  • Stakers can deposit USDC cryptocurrency into’s staking pools to earn high annual percentage yields (APYs) and incentives such as rewards paid in SHER tokens, the governance token for the Sherlock protocol. Stakers are incentivized to stake due to the high APY, the quality of Sherlock’s auditors, and the large bug bounty programs that each covered protocol must have.
  • Watsons are the security experts that perform full audits of each prospective protocol’s contracts. They provide input on the risk of the protocol’s contracts. audits are conducted by auditors the platform has worked with before, who are incentivized to find vulnerabilities in the codebase. ​​There is also a bug bounty program where anyone in the world can find bugs. The objective of the bug bounty program is to ensure that the auditing process is thorough and that all potential vulnerabilities are identified.
