Harmony’s growth is garnering more attention in their DeFi applications and uses in cross-border finance. Harmony aims to scale trust for billions of people whilst creating an efficient and fair economy. With such an ambitious mission, it’s time to ensure that DeFi and decentralized security are not mutually exclusive.

Harmony chose CertiK to provide decentralized security monitoring, ensuring a more trustworthy development environment and decentralized ecosystem.

With the launch of Mainnet, CertiK continues to seek more cross-chain collaboration opportunities with other leading blockchain projects in the space. Through partnering with Harmony, CertiK will be providing real-time security insights for Harmony users and developers which are ripe to be leveraged for decision making and software development.

With CertiK, security and DeFi are synonymous, they’re in Harmony.
