ByteScan is a Cyber Security Consulting Firm that offers security auditing services for a number of blockchains, with a special focus on third-generation blockchains and protocols, such as Solidity, Solana, NEAR, Algorand, Tezos, Cosmos, and Polkadot ecosystems.
We are hiring!
We have several open positions for qualified blockchain and smart contract security engineers to form part of our auditor pool (full-time and part-time).
Smart Contract Audits
Decentralized applications are prominent high-value targets for cybersecurity attacks with particular threat models and attack surfaces. ByteScan exists to solve the problem faced by decentralized application developers to secure their creations throughout the software lifecycle, from early planning to daily operations.
Ethereum is the biggest platform for decentralized finance. ByteScan team members have been involved in Ethereum smart contract auditing since 2017 and have collected vast experience in anything from DeFi protocols to complex L2 solutions.
Solana is a high-performance blockchain that works based on Proof of History consensus. ByteScan team members have been involved in Solana smart contract auditing since 2019 and have collected vast experience in anything from SPL tokens to complex DeFi solutions written in Rust.
Algorand is Pure Proof of Stake consensus protocol that randomly selects validators weighted by their staked ALGO coin. ByteScan team has hands-on experience of Algorand Virtual Machine (AVM), and Smart contracts written in Transaction Execution Approval Language (TEAL), Golang, and PyTeal library.
Blockchain security begins at the protocol level. With modular platforms allowing the development of application-specific blockchains and the emergence of blockchain interoperability, security reviews must be extended to these layers.
ByteScan is a key security actor in the Cosmos ecosystem, with highly experienced staff in Cosmos SDK development and security reviews.
Blockchains used to be silos but have recently started to communicate with each other. ByteScan security team has been involved with blockchain bridges since the early days, in research, development, and, most importantly, security.
ByteScan is the result of two domain experts in Computer Science and Economics getting together after years of collaborating to build a unique team to secure the new decentralized finance systems.
