Summary

Network and protocol security is paramount to the continued development of Nano. While Nano is an open-source project that is reviewed daily by engineers, having a professional code audit performed by a team of industry leaders would bring increased trust to the security of the network, the consensus system, and the underlying technology.

Once selected, a comprehensive security audit of the Nano Protocol will be conducted. A report will be provided once the audit has been completed giving the results.
