Audit of Ethereum 2.0 client Teku, blockchain insurance, Open DeFi, virtual events, and more media coverage... here’s what happened at Quantstamp in October.


Quantstamp Completes Audit of 2nd ETH 2.0 Implementation

We’re excited to announce the completion of our audit of Teku, the Ethereum 2.0 client developed by ConsenSys. This marks Quantstamp’s 2nd audit of an Ethereum 2.0 implementation: the Prysm client by Prysmatic Labs was audited by Quantstamp in July. 

“Ethereum 2.0 is on track to deliver Phase 0 in the very near future,” says Quantstamp CEO Richard Ma. “Client teams have spent countless hours coordinating, testing, and working with auditing firms to ensure that the foundation of Ethereum 2.0 is ready for delivery.” 

The audit included enforcing network consensus rules, maintaining consensus, and code that controls rewards and penalties for stakers. Overall, it was a very collaborative process. The code base was high quality, and any findings were disclosed as they were discovered, allowing the Teku development team to quickly resolve them. 




Formally Verifying Hedera Hashgraph's Stablecoin Framework

Stablecoins provide a compelling opportunity for enterprises by combining the transparency, security, and privacy of a digital asset with the stability of traditional currency. However, since 2017, over a quarter billion USD worth of digital assets have been lost or stolen due to errors in smart contract development. For enterprises to be comfortable leveraging the benefits of stablecoins, rigorous software verification and extensive auditing is crucial. Quantstamp has developed a formal specification for stablecoins built on Hedera Hashgraph and deployed using the Hedera Consensus Service.

The framework shortens development time, provides formal guarantees about the correctness of functions, removes the need to develop new tests, and creates a shared understanding amongst developers in regards to the stablecoins’ architecture and functionality. Developers seeking to integrate Hedera Hashgraph stablecoins into their platforms have certain security guarantees that reduce complexity and create a more predictable environment.

When stablecoins follow a secure framework, it facilitates their integration into other financial applications and helps support the development of a healthy stablecoin ecosystem. This also makes it easier for enterprises to create safe and compliant stablecoins.

Other Recent Audits

Aavegotchi: Quantstamp has now completed our audit of Aavegotchi's ghst-staking repository. Aavegotchi allows users to collect, compete, and combine Aavegotchis for a gamified experience that brings the concept of DeFi staking to NFT collectibles. GHST is the native utility token used as the medium of exchange between participants in the Aavegotchi ecosystem.

DerivaDEX: DerivaDEX is a decentralized exchange for derivative contracts built on top of Ethereum, powered by a DAO and decentralized insurance fund. As a community-owned exchange, their token allows users to participate in the governance and operations of the exchange. This is also the first major project to implement an upgradeability framework called Diamond. "Diamonds" are contracts that get external functions from other contracts, called "facets". Additional facets can then get added, removed and modified down the road via governance.

Nodle: Nodle is an IoT platform building on Polkadot using Substrate. Substrate is a blockchain framework that gives projects the ability to deploy an autonomous IoT network that directly connects to other blockchains. Nodle is attempting to solve two major challenges that face the IoT space: connectivity and security. With a more scalable payments chain, Nodle can power its global rewards network while remaining decentralized and secure.

Powertrade: Powertrade is a Bitcoin options trading platform with a mobile-first approach. 



Quantstamp Joins Open DeFi

This month, Quantstamp was one of five more members to join the global DeFi initiative Open DeFi, along with Aave, DyDx, Balancer, Outlier Ventures, and BlockScience. This global alliance unites blockchain leaders and DeFi startups to foster cross-border market growth, sustainability, and innovation.


Having secured over $5 billion USD of value for over 140 blockchain projects, Quantstamp has unique insights into risk management and is excited to share our unique knowledge with the Open DeFi community. Participating in the risk management track, we look forward to learning from our peers and working together to address some of the industry's biggest challenges. This recent CoinTelegraph article provides some additional information about the initiative and some of its other members.


The Status of Insurance in the Blockchain Industry

Traditionally, the concept of insurance is very familiar—there is always the chance that an unlikely event takes place that leads to expensive one-time costs. 

In the blockchain space, well over a quarter billion dollars worth of cryptocurrency has been lost or stolen due to bugs in smart contracts since 2017. While audits are still essential, they do not completely eliminate the possibility of a bug being present in code. 

Enter blockchain insurance. Blockchain insurance is still in its early days and has focused more on exchanges such as Coinbase or Crypto.com. More recently, on-chain insurance was popularized by Nexus Mutual. But as the blockchain ecosystem matures, the security needs of the space are evolving. 

Quantstamp’s extensive experience in the blockchain space has made us uniquely qualified to assess risk in this industry. In this recent post, we cover the three types of services Quantstamp offers to help our clients protect themselves against smart contract security risk.

Media: Quantstamp’s Recent Teku Audit

Quantstamp was featured in both Decrypt and CryptoBriefing in regards to the recent completion of our Teku audit. 

The migration of Ether and the DeFi ecosystem to Ethereum 2.0 is a high stakes process, with over 28 billion USD worth of Ether and other digital assets depending on the successful transition to proof-of-stake. Quantstamp is thrilled to have worked with the Teku team and look forward to the future of Ethereum.

Quantstamp 公告
2020年11月11日

对Ethereum 2.0客户端Teku的审计、区块链保险、Open DeFi、虚拟活动等媒体报道......以下是10月份发生在Quantstamp 。


Quantstamp 完成对第二次ETH 2.0实施情况的审计。

我们很高兴地宣布,我们对ConsenSys开发的Ethereum 2.0客户端Teku的审计已经完成。这标志着Quantstamp对Ethereum 2.0实现的第2次审核:Prysmatic Labs的Prysm客户端已于7月由Quantstamp 审核。 

"Ethereum 2.0正按计划在不久的将来交付0阶段,"Quantstamp CEO Richard Ma说。"客户团队已经花费了无数时间进行协调、测试,并与审计公司合作,以确保Ethereum 2.0的基础已经准备好交付。" 

审计内容包括执行网络共识规则,维护共识,以及控制对赌徒奖惩的代码。总的来说,这是一个非常合作的过程。代码库的质量很高,任何发现都会在发现时被披露,使Teku开发团队能够快速解决这些问题。 




正式验证Hedera Hashgraph的稳定币框架。

稳定币将数字资产的透明度、安全性和隐私性与传统货币的稳定性相结合,为企业提供了一个引人注目的机会。然而,自2017年以来,由于智能合约开发的错误,已经有价值超过25亿美元的数字资产丢失或被盗。要想让企业放心地利用稳定币的优势,严格的软件验证和广泛的审计是至关重要的。Quantstamp ,开发了一个建立在Hedera Hashgraph上的稳定币正式规范,并使用Hedera共识服务进行部署。

该框架缩短了开发时间,提供了关于函数正确性的形式化保证,消除了开发新测试的需要,并在开发者之间建立了关于稳定币架构和功能的共同理解。寻求将Hedera Hashgraph稳定币整合到其平台中的开发人员有一定的安全保证,降低了复杂性,创造了一个更可预测的环境。

当稳定币遵循一个安全的框架时,它有利于其融入其他金融应用,并有助于支持一个健康的稳定币生态系统的发展。这也使得企业更容易创建安全、合规的稳定币。

在我们最近的文章中了解更多关于这个项目的信息。


其他近期审计

Aavegotchi: Quantstamp ,目前我们已经完成了对Aavegotchi的ghstake存储库的审核。Aavegotchi允许用户收集、竞争和组合Aavegotchis,以获得游戏化体验,将DeFi押注的概念引入NFT收藏品。GHST是原生的实用代币,用作Aavegotchi生态系统中参与者之间的交换媒介。

DerivaDEX:DerivaDEX是一个建立在Ethereum之上的衍生品合约的去中心化交易所,由DAO和去中心化的保险基金驱动。作为一个社区所有的交易所,他们的代币允许用户参与交易所的治理和运营。这也是第一个实施名为"钻石"的可升级框架的大型项目。"钻石"是指从其他合约中获得外部功能的合约,称为"面"。然后,额外的面可以通过治理来增加、删除和修改下来。

NodleN odle是一个使用Substrate在Polkadot上构建的物联网平台。Substrate是一个区块链框架,它使项目能够部署一个自主的物联网网络,直接连接到其他区块链。Nodle试图解决物联网领域面临的两大挑战:连接和安全。通过更可扩展的支付链,Nodle可以为其全球奖励网络提供动力,同时保持去中心化和安全。

保险在区块链行业中的地位。

传统上,保险的概念是非常熟悉的--总有机会发生不可能发生的事件,导致昂贵的一次性费用。 

在区块链领域,自2017年以来,由于智能合约的错误,已经有价值超过25亿美元的加密货币丢失或被盗。虽然审计仍然是必不可少的,但并不能完全消除代码中存在bug的可能性。 

进入区块链保险。区块链保险仍处于早期阶段,更多的是集中在Coinbase或Crypto.com等交易所。最近,链上保险由Nexus Mutual普及。但随着区块链生态系统的成熟,该领域的安全需求也在不断发展。 

Quantstamp'在区块链领域的丰富经验使我们在评估这个行业的风险方面具有独特的资格。在最近的这篇文章中,我们介绍了Quantstamp 提供的三类服务,以帮助客户防范智能合约安全风险。
