What Is a Smart Contract Security Audit?
A smart contract security audit provides a detailed analysis of a project's smart contracts. These are important to safeguard funds invested through them. As all transactions on the blockchain are final, funds cannot be retrieved should they be stolen.

A final report is then released, detailing any outstanding errors and the work already done to address performance or security issues.
