The Security of the Element Protocol is our highest priority.

Our audit reports provide a highly detailed analysis on the areas of coverage and concern, and we are happy to share them with our community to help anyone better understand how the Element Protocol works.

The following traditional security audits have been performed on the Element Protocol’s core contracts:

Our security efforts have resulted in the discovery of a number of bugs, including some critical- and medium-severity issues. The team has taken the appropriate actions to evaluate and mitigate these issues, and we look forward to continuing to work with our auditors as we get closer to the official launch of the Element Protocol.
