Understanding Web3 Application Security – Sandy Carielli, Martha Bennett – ASW #218
The Web3 ecosystem is chock full of applications and projects that have lost money (and their customers’ money) due to breaches, code flaws, or outright fraud. How can security teams do a better job of protecting Web3 apps?
