Smart contract audit aid in examining and analysing a smart contract’s code that is utilised to interact with a cryptocurrency or blockchain. This methodology is performed to discover errors, issues, and security vulnerabilities in the code in order to suggest improvements. Due to interaction between the contracts and financial assets and/or valuable items, smart contract audits are crucial to detect any inaccuracies.

This assessment process is complex, as smart contracts often co-operate with each other. Additionally, any integrations with third-party systems can also result in making the system vulnerable. Therefore, the checks are often extended to other smart contracts involved in any interactions. This approach often involves both running tests and manual code analysis.
