Redefining Smart Contract Audits via Automation
Security concerns have repeatedly shaken the trust in handling billions of USD in decentralized smart contracts. It has become clear that writing secure smart contracts is a significant challenge. In this talk, I will present the first push-button verification tool for Ethereum smart contracts that is fully automated, easily extensible to new security vulnerabilities, and provides strong security guarantees.
