MainStage: Blockchain Security Guardian
In the past year, the crypto market has been climbing not only in terms of market capitalization, but also in terms of financial losses due to security issues. It’s vitally important for projects to conduct security audits before launching. MainStage is an open, automated audit platform. With MainStage, project owners can complete security audits cost-effectively, and investors can make informed investment decisions based on audit results.
According to the on-chain statistics, the financial loss of crypto market due to hacking or vulnerabilities in 2021 is about $1.3 billion, compared to $500 million a year ago, a full increase of 160%. The hasty launch of copycat projects, unaudited deployments and outright fraud have caused huge financial losses to investors in the crypto market. Without effective security measures to protect users and platforms, the healthy development of blockchain will be greatly affected.
Therefore, if we want blockchain to be a safe area for investment and innovation, we need a “security guardian”.
MainStage is the security testing module of Triathon, which enables automated auditing of smart contracts. Users can deploy DAPPs or smart contracts to MainStage for security auditing. And MainStage can continue to optimize code through machine learning. As test cases and vulnerability data accumulate, MainStage’s audit strategy will also become more and more advanced.
Automated security audits of MainStage help speed up the review process and save time and money for the projects. MainStage typically tests multiple forms of attacks and conducts security reviews on the project process by simulating multiple attack scenarios to ensure the security of the contract. With the code review of MainStage, project owners can identify all potential problems that may have been overlooked during the coding phase, fix them before the project launches and prevent users from suffering financial losses.
The advantages of MainStage compared with traditional security auditing companies are:
Once the project owner provides the source code of the smart contract, MainStage can automatically start the security scanning of the contract, and conduct audits on a regular basis (week, month, year) as needed. It greatly reduces the complexity of manual audits and improves audit efficiency.
2. Low cost
The entire auditing process of MainStage is automatically executed by smart contracts, saving a lot of human resources costs. For small and medium-sized projects, it is more cost effective to choose MainStage than to purchase security services from centralized auditing companies.
MainStage is an open testing platform that allows users to deploy their own test code to test their projects. Traditional security auditing companies have limited personnel, and their breadth and depth of testing is insufficient. The open testing format of MainStage can attract senior testers under the segmentation area. So the auditing effect is better, reducing the risk of hacker attacks.
For project owners, MainStage can reduce the complexity of manual audits through automated audits. It reduces the false alarm rate, and ensures the accuracy and efficiency of the audit process. In addition, MainStage automatically generates audit reports after the audit is completed and makes improvement suggestions to help project owners quickly locate problems and make timely changes.
For investors, they can use the audit results of MainStage to gain a deeper understanding of the security risks of their investment projects. Using the security data provided by MainStage, investors can make more informed decisions.
