Ensuring that the Loci platform and token sale operate the way they are intended to is our greatest concern.
RESTON, Va. (PRWEB) November 29, 2017
Dave Hoover, a prior ConsenSys employee, conducted a routine audit on Loci's smart contracts to administer the LOCIcoin token sale. In particular, the smart contract manages functions corresponding with the IRefundHandler, LOCIcoin and LOCISale operations within the code.
The audit reported that the contracts are well-written and thoroughly tested with 125 unit tests. Hoover also notes that, “smart contract security, particularly re-entracy, was clearly at the top of the authors’ minds during the development of these contracts.” There were no showstopping faults and only a few mild concerns, which the Loci team has already edited within their code.
Loci’s team has been working overtime to ensure the technology is buttoned up and ready for their token sale, which launches on December 6th (0:00 UTC). Token sales are controversial, as many individuals get concerned that companies can’t or won’t hold up their end of the bargain. This new way of fundraising has been impacted by hacks, instances of fraud, and much disappointment. Loci, however, is working with the talented team of lawyers at Cooley LLP to ensure a safe experience for all participants.
Loci’s Director of Technology, Eric Ross, says, “Ensuring that the Loci platform and token sale operate the way they are intended to is our greatest concern. According to our audit, it is believed that our smart contracts are secure and will function properly. Security of our InnVenn platform and token sale are our utmost priority and we will take the steps necessary to protect our users.”
Hoover dove into blockchain technology in 2015, mentored by Brian Forde and Neha Nerula. He was a software engineer for two decades before focusing on blockchain technology and cryptocurrency and quickly grasped the fundamentals, which led him to a job at ConsenSys. After leaving ConsenSys, Dave has been leading the blockchain and software engineers at raise.com, and auditing contracts for companies like Loci.
Loci also recently released an updated white paper, which details updates to Loci’s DIY patent search platform, InnVenn. Updates include new information regarding the distribution of native token, LOCIcoin which fuels Loci’s intellectual property ecosystem. Loci’s token sale launches to the public sphere on December 6th with the whitelist registration period going on now. To learn more, visit Loci’s website.
