The Polkadot Genesis Security Audits Hub

At Web3 Foundation we believe in an internet where users, not corporations, own their own data. With that goal in mind, we are building and funding the next generation of the internet, Web 3.0, where blockchain technology will create “trustless” systems without the intermediaries that exist today. This means that we will no longer have to trust in the good intentions of an institution, corporation or service provider. Instead, the rules and regulations can be built into the system, which will continue to run by these rules no matter who governs or builds on it.

This also means that blockchain security is of paramount importance. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and any weakness in the system affects the whole.

We have engaged the best in the business to do the auditing for us. Among them are Atredis, NCC Group, Open Zeppelin, SR Labs, and Trail of Bits.

And since transparency is the name of the game for us at Web3 Foundation, we are publishing this ongoing blog series to outline the findings and the steps taken to rectify any problems identified.
