Smart Contract Vulnerabilities Game – Capture the Flag (CTF)


During our smart contracts audits on the Cardano network, we often find many easily-preventable vulnerabilities. It stems from a lack of good educational materials in the space of Cardano security. 


We will release open-source CTF challenges where developers and enthusiasts can exploit vulnerable smart contracts and learn about the most common security issues and how to prevent them.
