Polymarket Exchange Smart Contracts

Security Audit

Download Audit Report

The most critical subjects covered in our audit are functional correctness, access control, and signature handling.

The contracts show a high level of functional correctness and handle signatures correctly. The general subjects covered are code complexity and gas efficiency. The code maintains an adequate level of complexity. Gas efficiency is good but could be improved in some cases.

In summary, we find that the current codebase provides a high level of security.

It is important to note that security audits are time-boxed and cannot uncover all vulnerabilities. They complement but don’t replace other vital measures to secure a project.
