DeFi & NFT Gaming Platform AnRKey X Secures Native Smart Contracts With CertiK

NEW YORK, 11/02/2021 - We’re happy to announce that AnRKey X’s main ERC-20 contractwhich contains the $ANRX token implementation, was successfully audited by CertiK Professional Services Division. In this spotlight, we outline the scope of the audit, as well as present some of the issues found during the auditing process.

Use-Case Profile

AnRKey X is an Ethereum-based project that pioneered the term and concept ofm$sports, essentially DeFi tools empowered by NFT protocols and Web3 compatibility, enhancing the gamification aspects of the broader sub-Ethereum industry.

Besides leading the eSports x Web3 field, AnRKey X is also behind the $ANRX token, the DeFi Gaming Alliance (recently changed to DeFi Gaming Coalition) where CertiK is also a proud member of, and BattleWave 2323, AnRKey X’s genesis dApp that incentivizes users to learn about all the above in an interactive and gamified fashion.

Code Review & Auditing Process

The initial review was conducted between January 11th and January 25th, 2021, by CertiK security engineers Camden Smallwood, and Angelos Apostolidis.

The CertiK Professional Services team assigned to AnRKey X reviewed the code implementation for the main ERC-20 contract supporting $ANRX, including but not limited to its respective functions, as well as its implementation in the codebase, effectively going through the most significant parts of it - responsible for the core functionality of the system, as pointed out in the project’s statements.

The in-depth investigation of the smart contract in question included Static Analysis and Manual Review techniques. The auditing process focused on the following considerations:

  • Testing smart contract against both common and uncommon attack vectors.
  • Assessing the codebase to ensure compliance with current best practices and industry standards.
  • Ensuring contract logic meets the specifications and intentions of the client.
  • Cross-referencing contract structure and implementation against similar smart contracts produced by industry leaders.
  • Through a line-by-line manual review of the entire codebase.

Considering AnRKey X followed the best practices to deploy its native ERC-20 contract, there were only 3 findings as addressed by the vulnerability summary, of which two (2) were of informational nature, and only one (1) minor issue was identified. No major or critical issues were found during the auditing process, and the AnRKey X team alleviated all minor issues highlighted by the CertiK Professional Services team, pointing towards a well-written codebase by the team’s engineers.

In continuing their focus and priority of security in all their technology and products, AnRKey X is also scheduled this Q1 to have CertiK complete the full audit of their first game DApp release Battle Wave 2323 on their gDEX (Decentralized Finance Gaming Platform Exchange).
