ZkSync, an Ethereum scaling protocol passed its first security audit to ensure that it is ready for expanding user access later this year.
Chainalysis reports that security audits for new protocols have become more important following the worst hacking year ever recorded in crypto history. This security audit provides an additional layer in trust for users and builders of protocols as well as zkSync network security.
zkSync has been launched on the initiative of several decentralized finance protocols, such as Aave (and Uniswap), for example. Protocols and users can have greater trust when expanding to the new network or transacting through them.
The audit was conducted by OpenZeppelin, an internationally recognized crypto auditing company. It lasted for four weeks. OpenZeppelin provided security feedback on demand between future audits. They also appointed technical and security advisers to supervise zkSync.
