Smart contracts allow parties to conduct transactions without the need of an intermediary and encourage immutability, speed, efficiency, and trust in business. Ethereum-based smart contracts have been adapted to a myriad uses--including the issuance of tokens, creation of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), and decentralized finance (DeFi).
Despite the obvious importance of smart contracts, developers pay little attention to code security. The result? Millions lost in stolen funds, reputations damaged overnight, and drops in customer confidence.
This article covers the basics of securing Ethereum contracts and reducing exploits. It also reviews popular tools like Mythril and Securify, which are important for finding vulnerabilities in smart contracts.
