Hacken partners with Radix to boost Radix’s ecosystem security with comprehensive code audits
In August, Hacken announced it has partnered with KuCoin Community Chain (KCC) to bring together its extensive experience in digital security and the distinctive community-driven blockchain of KCC, with the shared goal of creating a more secure and seamless Web3 environment. Just two months later, the trusted blockchain security auditor Hacken has reached a new partnership agreement with Radix to strengthen Radix’s ecosystem security with comprehensive code audits.
Today, Hacken announced it has joined forces with Radix as part of the effort to boost the Radix ecosystem’s progress and security. As part of this partnership, Hacken has been designated as the primary authority for conducting comprehensive code audits for projects developed on the Radix platform.
Founded in 2017, Hacken has solidified itself in the realm of Web3 as a trusted blockchain security auditor. With a team of over 60 cybersecurity experts and a vast external community comprising more than 25,000 white hat hackers and security researchers, Hacken brings a wealth of experience to the collaboration. On the other side of this partnership, Radix stands out as a leading full-stack, layer-1 smart contract platform committed to enhancing the user and developer experience in Web3 and DeFi.
In addition, Hacken has dedicated the past six months to immersing itself in the intricate Radix tech stack. This includes a deep understanding of the unique Scrypto programming language, its execution environment, and its peer-reviewed consensus algorithm. With this extensive knowledge, Hacken is now well-equipped to provide top-tier audit guidance to teams utilizing Scrypto or other tools and dApps within the broader Radix suite. In a statement, Piers Ridyard, CEO of RDX Works, shared his deep satisfaction with the partnership, saying:
“We have been incredibly impressed with Hacken’s professional approach, deep technical competence, and comprehensive audit process. Radix, as a new technology stack with novel coding language and execution environment, demanded thorough scrutiny. We are thrilled to have projects in the Radix ecosystem carry forward with the Hacken seal of approval.”
Igor Bershadsky, Director of Business Development and Partnerships at Hacken, also shared his enthusiasm for the collaboration with the Radix ecosystem, highlighting Radix’s ability to offer a user-friendly experience and a well-structured set of built-in components with comprehensive documentation.
“Radix finally delivers what other protocols struggle with – relative ease of us and well-written set of built-in components with comprehensive documentation which allow way easier creation of decentralized applications. Their approach is both user and developer friendly, they have the potential to finally create a blockchain ecosystem which will be safe to use by non-technical users,” Bershadsky said.
While code audits can’t guarantee absolute security, they do play a crucial role in fortifying the ecosystem’s safety. The partnership with Hacken aims to reinforce the security of dApps developed within the Radix ecosystem, ultimately building trust among users.
Hacken has already made a significant impact by providing valuable feedback that enhances the security of the Radix public network. The recent upgrade of the Radix public network from Olympia to Babylon on September 27th has introduced robust smart contract functionality and bolstered the platform’s overall resilience.
Hacken is a trusted blockchain security auditor dedicated to enhancing safety within the Web3 ecosystem. With a skilled team comprising over 60 certified engineers, they provide comprehensive solutions addressing various aspects of blockchain security, including smart contract and protocol audits, bug bounty programs, and security assessments. Since its establishment in 2017, Hacken has consistently set higher standards for blockchain security, collaborating with over 1,200 Web3 projects.
On the other hand, Radix stands out as a leading full-stack, layer-1 smart contract platform focused on revolutionizing the user and developer experience within Web3 and DeFi. Featuring the unique Scrypto programming language and Radix Engine, Radix offers an intuitive platform enabling developers to smoothly translate their ideas into production-ready decentralized applications (dApps).
