Spring has truly sprung at CertiK HQ and it’s with that very same spring in our step that we bring you the CertiK April Newsletter!

Reflecting the rapid movements of the crypto market, the team at the Foundation have had another busy month. With a refreshed homepage on the Security Leaderboard, our newest live showcase series, and plenty of AMAs spreading the word on all things security in blockchain, we’re sure this roundup will be a good one. Happy reading!


CertiK Validator Node on Binance Smart Chain

In case you missed it, and in light of the CertiK Foundation having been incubated by Binance Labs, we’ve rolled out our very own Binance Smart Chain validator node.

BNB holders can stake their BNB to our validator to secure the chain and, of course, be rewarded in the process.

LIVE Showcase — Security Leaderboard

As part of our efforts to provide transparent security data and highlight the best of the blockchain world we’re hosting a weekly showcase shared live-streamed on our channels.

Our LIVE Showcase series gives you the chance to ask your burning questions to top DeFi project and get more insights into what’s to come on the project roadmap, and, of course, their security.

Security Leaderboard — New Look

With a new month comes a new look! We’ve spruced up the Security Leaderboard homepage to make the experience a little smoother when it comes to doing your own research.

Community Alerts

The eagle eyed of you might have noticed the addition of the Community Alert section which was added late last month. Our community is invited to share any security concerns, and blow the whistle, regarding any blockchain based project, whether it’s listed on the Security Leaderboard yet or not.

Our Community Alert system has been a huge hit so far, with alerts coming in from our security-dedicated community on the daily!

Have you identified a security flaw, rug pull, or suspicious activity around a blockchain based project? If so, share it with us for the chance to get your hands on some $CTK!

  1. Head over to the Security Leaderboard
  2. On the right hand side you’ll see ‘CertiK Community Alerts’ — hit the bell
  3. Fill out the form with as much information as you have to share

Voilà! You’ve just played your part in making the blockchain ecosystem a little safer. Thank you.

The importance of this cannot be understated, with billions of dollars locked in DeFi projects there is a real stake at play.
