Code4rena and Chainlink Labs Establish Strategic Alliance To Support Chainlink BUILD and SCALE Members

We’re excited to announce that Code4rena has established a strategic alliance with Chainlink Labs, developers of the industry-leading decentralized computing platform Chainlink. This alliance will help drive the growth of the Code4rena and Chainlink ecosystems and support Chainlink BUILD and Chainlink SCALE members with smart contract audits.

Code4rena x Chainlink BUILD and SCALE

In 2021, Code4rena introduced a solution to the unique challenges of Web3 security with the competitive audit, bringing hundreds of auditors together to review a given project’s code. Code4rena’s open audit model uses gamification to reward auditors based on the rarity and severity of the unique bugs they identify. With over 7,700 registered auditors on the platform, Code4rena draws in top solo auditors, teams, and firms alike to compete, ensuring thorough and on-demand reviews of project code.

The Chainlink BUILD program is designed to foster promising early-stage startups in Chainlink’s ecosystem. Chainlink SCALE allows blockchains and layer-2 networks to fast-track smart contract innovation in their native ecosystems by covering operating costs (e.g. transaction gas fees) of Chainlink oracle networks for a period of time.

As a trusted collaborator, Code4rena will offer consultation services and educational content to help developers with the resources they need to safely deploy innovative solutions utilizing Chainlink’s technology.

Code4rena has a long-standing history of collaboration with Chainlink, having conducted comprehensive audits of Chainlink itself on multiple occasions, including the CCIP protocol. We are excited to utilize this expertise to help more projects deploy faster without compromising security.

“Smart contract security is a non-negotiable aspect of building in Web3. This strategic alliance with Chainlink Labs helps us to encourage more Web3 projects to understand that and helps support Chainlink BUILD and SCALE members in accessing smart contract audits on the Code4rena platform.” — Ada Vaughan, Head of Growth at Code4rena.

“Code4rena has a proven track record of providing vital audits of projects in the ecosystem, so we’re excited to be able to give enhanced support to Chainlink BUILD projects and SCALE partners through the Code4rena platform.” — Oliver Birch, Global Head of BUILD at Chainlink Labs
