Having an audit done by a competent firm is a must have for any smart contract, and with the expertise of QuillAudits it will be done flawlessly. The audit process for NEAR smart contract is based on the comprehensive approach we follow to investigate the code for security flaws and potential vulnerabilities, and the best possible ways to mitigate them.
Complete Vulnerability Check
Smart contracts are widely exposed to threats such as front-running, reentrancy attacks, Arithmetic logic flaws, etc., time and again. Our in-house security experts manually review and authenticate every bit of code to identify and mitigate all possible risks and vulnerabilities.
Detailed reports on the severity issues detected in the code with the security recommendations can be obtained from the Near smart contract audit by our experts. Get the code audited as you develop to eliminate all potential vulnerabilities that may otherwise go unnoticed before it's too late.
Scheduled Auto Scans
A code requires to be updated, re-audited and reformed to reassure your users of the safety and protection offered to their assets by your project. Thus, auditing once isn't the end, as regular scans help maintain integrity and security throughout future development cycles.
Our experts assess the risk and provide security recommendations after rigorous testing and fathoming the code from multiple perspectives. QuillAudits reports summarize the project and describe each vulnerability with specific reference to relevant portions of the smart contract.
NEAR is a relatively new yet widely adopted protocol for building Web3 and decentralized applications. Its unique combination of sharing technology and Nightshade PoS consensus mechanism offers a more efficient, scalable dApps ecosystem with low fees, paving the way for widespread Web3.0 adoption. With Web3.0 being slated as the future of the internet, it is necessary for the dApps built on this ecosystem to ensure on par or better security than existing online applications. Enabling it is QuillAudits’ three-part NEAR smart contract audit process.
In-depth code scrutiny by QuillAudits team brings out any code flaws that make smart contracts vulnerable to remediation.
Vectors Identify loopholes most likely to be exploited by hackers and plug them.
Streamline the code to optimize processes, minimize associated costs, and more.
Audit reports and certification from a reputed smart contract audit firm help build trust among stakeholders.
|1||Missing signer checks||Lack of signer verification can lead to unauthorized transactions, compromising the security of the smart contract.|
|2||Unsafe Rust code||Presence of unsafe code can lead to vulnerabilities, potentially enabling attackers to exploit the smart contract and steal assets.|
|3||Outdated dependencies||Use of outdated dependencies can expose the smart contract to known vulnerabilities, making it more susceptible to attacks.|
|4||Redundant code||Presence of redundant code can increase the smart contract's complexity, making it harder to maintain and potentially leading to unintended behaviour.|
|5||Missing ownership checks||Failure to check ownership can lead to unauthorized access to assets and data, increasing the risk of theft and fraud.|
|6||Loss of precision||Loss of precision can lead to calculation errors, compromising the accuracy of the smart contract's operations.|
|7||Incorrect Inheritance Order||Incorrect inheritance order can lead to unexpected behaviour and compromise the integrity of the smart contract's operations.|
|8||User balance manipulation||Unauthorized manipulation of user balances can result in asset theft and loss, compromising the security and trust in the smart contract.|
Each year, millions drain down the crypto hacks. Here are a few examples how hackers took advantage of the loopholes in the code to escape with millions:
In March 2022, $615M were stolen from Ronin Network, a platform powering the popular mobile game Axie Infinity.
In August 2021, the criminals transferred $611M-worth of Poly Network tokens to three wallets they controlled.
In September 2020, $275m worth of cryptocurrency was stolen from the Singapore-headquartered exchange KuCoin.

NEAR is a blockchain development platform written in general-purpose programming languages Rust and AssemblyScript that is based on a sharded, proof-of-stake, layer-one blockchain. It is commonly known for its 1000x lower transaction fees and carbon neutrality which makes it an emerging and user friendly choice amongst developers.
NEAR platform aims to bring together a multitude of community members in order to provide the most stable experience possible with a broad multifunctional ecosystem to its users.
