Live Training #7 - Smart Contract Security #2
Learn to create smart contract audits
What is the highest paid skill in the Blockchain industry?
As a smart contract security specialist, you can earn up to 250k USD / year.
Hundreds of millions have been lost to smart contract hacks.
If you can write safe smart contracts, it's worth a LOT of money.
And in the security niche, smart contract audits is what pays the most.
Blockchain companies pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for a single smart contract audit.
In a smart contract audit, there are 2 components:
- Finding security vulnerabilities
- Presenting your findings in a report
The mindset to have is different than for a developer who try to write a safe smart contract.
As a smart contract auditor, you put yourself in the shoes of a hacker and try to exploit security vulnerability, if any.
In this training, you will learn from a professional security specialist how to do smart contract audits.
After this training, you will be able to do your own smart contract audits and charge top dollars for it!
