Core founders team (from left to right): Prof. Martin Vechev (leads the Secure, Reliable, and Intelligent Systems Lab at the Department of Computer Science, ETH Zurich), Matthias Egli (MSc ETH Zurich), Dr. Hubert Ritzdorf (PhD ETH Zurich), and Dr. Petar Tsankov (PhD ETH Zurich, senior researcher at the Secure, Reliable, and Intelligent Systems Lab).
The team from ChainSecurity AG, an ETH spin-off from the Department of Computer Science, joined PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Switzerland to further accelerate market growth and product development.
Congratulations to the whole team and all the best in their new way up with PwC.
The journey of ChainSecurity started with the first major hack in a popular Ethereum contract. The problem was caused by a security bug, which allowed an attacker to appropriate over 150 million USD. Shortly after the incident, researchers from the Secure, Reliable, and Intelligent Systems (SRI) Lab at the Department of Computer Science investigated the attack and explored different ways to ensure that smart contracts are free of vulnerabilities.
