Importance of the security audit for DeFi projects

The most important topic in blockchain has always been security.
The disadvantages of the traditional financial system and the risks associated with intermediaries in the financial environment have led to the popularity of decentralized finance (DeFi). Having made the transition to DeFi and getting rid of the previous risks, we received many benefits from decentralization, but the risks have not disappeared anywhere - they have only transformed to the vulnerabilities in the code of smart contracts.
At DeFimoon, we understand the importance of ensuring the security of blockchain projects at a high level.
That is why a few years ago we started our journey in this direction. Our goal is to make the WEB 3 space safer.

The smart contract audits market is growing every year because more teams, projects and investors understand how important security is. However, we still encounter projects that overestimate the quality of their code and underestimate the abilities of scammers and hackers. That is why in 2022 we still hear very often about massive hacking of projects, the theft of millions of dollars and the destruction of entire projects. All this negatively affects the entire blockchain community: investor sentiment is changing dramatically and trust in blockchain technologies is plummeting.
Why should an audit also be of interest to ordinary members of the community?
In the situations described above, not only the creators of projects and investment funds suffer, but also the ordinary community, because their money is literally disappearing. In addition, there are a huge number of scam projects.
Fraudulent functionality is laid down here at the stage of project creation, so before buying a coin or an NFT of this project, you need to be sure of the security of this code.

Wrapping Up

Never put your DeFi security down!
Besides the golden rules above, you should remember that there is hardly a comprehensive list to cover all potential vulnerabilities. The more blockchain and DeFi grow, the more sophisticated attempts hackers create to exploit the systems and steal your money.
Top Solana Vulnerabilities
Solana is a widely popular blockchain and attractively low transaction fees are certainly among the reasons developers choose it. Among Solana-based dApps are some of the most popular and valued projects. This is why knowing Solana and its weaker points is now more necessary than ever.
