To meet the demand generated by this rush to write smart contracts for Bitcoin, some of the top smart contract auditing firms in the industry, including NCC
, Least Authority
, and Coinfabrik
have completed training facilitated by the Stacks Foundation and begun providing Clarity smart contract audit services to Stacks projects. We’re thankful to call these organizations part of the Stacks Ecosystem and for the valuable expertise they bring to the community.
The recent launches of Arkadiko
(now well over $50 million TVL) and Stackswap
headlined the demand for Bitcoin-based DeFi, while Bitcoin NFT projects on Stacks continued their torrid pace, crossing over $6 million in daily value transacted (including mints, marketplace trades, private sales, etc.).
As the language, and the momentum around building on Bitcoin continues to grow, more products and services are rapidly hitting the market. This necessitates we take every step possible to ensure users are having the safest, most secure experience possible, meaning audits
—no matter how well-designed a smart contract language is or how skilled the developer using it.
