LaunchZone and CertiK, the leading cybersecurity firm, enter a new partnership

LaunchZone is thrilled to announce today that it has entered a new strategic partnership with CertiK, the leading cybersecurity firm that focuses on blockchain protocols, smart contracts, and crypto services. As a decentralized non-custodial cryptocurrency exchange-centered ecosystem that runs on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), LaunchZone’s mission is to make Binance’s off-chain services available on the blockchain, develop the applications on BSC, and promote the features of decentralized finance that let our users earn tokens and gain many other economic benefits.

CertiK will provide LaunchZone two services: Source Code Audit and CertikShield Protection.

Source Code Audit.

The CertiK Team will review LaunchZone’s source code for syntactical, semantic, and logical errors with a methodology including “but not limited to”:

  • White box code review
  • Static Analysis
  • Expert Manual Review

The Services consist of:

  • A primary “audit and review” of all source code in scope.
  • Open communication channel between engineering teams for feedback, clarification, and discussion on issues and suggested remediations.
  • CertiK will perform a secondary review after LaunchZone has remediated and implemented suggested changes. The scope of this review will be limited to verification that any improvements, errors, or vulnerabilities previously identified have been properly remediated or that the suggested modifications have been implemented without opening up new issues.
  • If the LaunchZone’s code does not pass CertiK’s auditing process, CertiK will provide LaunchZone with issues identified and suggestions for addressing the issues. After which, the LaunchZone will decide whether to update or revise their “source code”.
