Introducing Crypto’s First Antivirus for Gnosis Blockchain! | by De.Fi | Mar, 2023
We are pleased to announce that De.Fi, the creator of Crypto’s First Antivirus, has completely integrated the Gnosis chain, offering blockchain users an extra level of protection. Part of this is the De.Fi Scanner, which provides users with a critical response to the security concerns raised by the DeFi ecosystem.
Using De.Fi Antivirus, Gnosis Blockchain joined Coingecko, the University of London, the University of Montreal, and the National University of Singapore in employing our security solutions, making DeFi Environment far more secure DeFi environment!
De.Fi Antivirus is live on Gnosis — what’s going to change?
De.Fi Scanner, which is Crypto’s First Antivirus, is a multi-layer security solution that prevents users from interacting with malicious assets.
Now, any user can insert a smart contract of any token/NFT/LP/Vault that is built on Gnosis. In just a few seconds, we will provide you with a comprehensive breakdown of the contract’s safety, high-risk functions, liquidity, and token distribution analysis. 👇
Gnosis Chain is a sidechain created by combining the ecosystems of xDAI and GnosisDAO, aimed at addressing some of the scaling challenges faced by the Ethereum blockchain. GnosisDAO is a decentralized autonomous organization that builds decentralized infrastructure for the Ethereum ecosystem. It uses the products it creates to guide decisions on the development, support, and governance of its ecosystem. The native token of the Gnosis ecosystem is GNO, which is used for staking on the Gnosis Beacon Chain and acts as the governance token for the GnosisDAO.
The Gnosis Chain offers several benefits, including addressing the scaling challenges of the Ethereum blockchain, providing more efficient and secure infrastructure for decentralized applications, and offering a permissionless decentralized exchange (DEX) that protects traders against miner extractable value (MEV).
Additionally, the Gnosis Chain uses the xDAI stablecoin to facilitate transactions and pay for fees, and the network itself is secured by the consensus layer, called the Gnosis Beacon Chain (GBC), which uses a Proof-of-Stake system. This allows users to lock up an amount of GNO to participate in the transaction validation process and receive additional GNO tokens as a reward for helping to secure the network.
With the above features, the Gnosis Chain and the Gnosis ecosystem aim to expand the utility of the Ethereum ecosystem by building decentralized infrastructure and using its products to guide decisions on the development, support, and governance of its ecosystem.
What is the De.Fi Scanner?
The De.Fi Scanner serves as an automated smart contract auditor that enables users to evaluate the security of smart contracts in the DeFi space quickly and easily.
With just one click, the Scanner examines the underlying code of a smart contract and assigns a security score within minutes, providing users with a convenient way to assess the safety of interacting with the contract.
Moreover, the platform’s vast database of known security vulnerabilities allows it to detect and flag potential threats, providing users with detailed information to make informed decisions.
By integrating the De.Fi Scanner into the Gnosis ecosystem, users can benefit from a robust tool to evaluate smart contract security, reducing the risk of vulnerabilities and hacks that could lead to significant financial losses. This integration offers users on Gnosis a reliable way to secure their funds.
How to Use the De.Fi Scanner
The De.Fi Scanner is an easy-to-use tool designed to help users assess the security of smart contracts in the DeFi space.
To use the scanner, simply enter the contract address in the search bar and wait a few minutes for the scan to complete.
Once the scan is complete, the results will be shown in an easy-to-read, user-friendly layout, highlighting any risks associated with the smart contract.
These risks could range from minor issues that can be easily resolved to major security vulnerabilities that could put user funds at risk. By using the De.Fi Scanner, users can quickly and conveniently assess the safety of interacting with a smart contract, enabling them to make informed decisions and stay safe in the fast-paced and ever-changing world of DeFi.
Why We Created the Web3 Antivirus
The DeFi sector experienced remarkable growth in 2022, along with increased scrutiny after the failures of large centralized finance players like FTX. However, this growth faced several challenges, with a recent report showing that losses worth $49 billion were incurred during the year. It’s worth noting that half of these losses resulted from security vulnerabilities in smart contracts, emphasizing the need for stronger security solutions.
Fortunately, De.Fi’s Scanner offers a solution to this issue, equipping users with the necessary tools to stay secure in the DeFi ecosystem. The platform’s advanced security features and user-friendly interfaces make it easy for both new and experienced users to navigate the complex and risky world of DeFi.
The Scanner is just one of the features of De.Fi, the premier Web3 SuperApp. With De.Fi, users can track their assets, scan contracts, revoke access, and explore the best yields across the DeFi universe, all in one convenient location!
