Neodyme is a small team of security researchers and auditors with focus on the Solana ecosystem.
We're Neodyme, a team of security researchers who have spent the past ~12 months inspecting the internals of the Solana blockchain. Over the course of our research, we discovered and reported several vulnerabilities in the Solana core code, ultimately helping to secure the chain against attackers.
A few months ago, we were sponsored by the Solana Foundation to also set up a peer review system for smart contracts that are important for the Solana ecosystem. Since then, we've been working with developers from a range of projects building on Solana to assist them in securing their contracts. We've audited dozens of contracts, using our unique experience with Solana to uncover many exploitable bugs. During these audits, we've discovered intricate vulnerabilities in some of the major projects on the chain, and our reviews helped prevent the potential theft of roughly USD 1 billion worth of assets.
However, as Solana is such a rapidly growing ecosystem, we have nowhere near enough capacity to manually audit every new contract to our standards. Instead, we'll be sharing some of the knowledge we've built over the course of our many audits in this blog, in hopes that developers and other auditors will be able to make use of it.
