Risks

Smart contract risk

As a user of Obligate, it is important to understand the potential risk associated with smart contracts. Smart contracts are self-executing contracts with the terms of the agreement written directly into the code. They provide tamper-proof and enforceable agreements, but also have inherent risks in their complex nature, especially with the value they hold.
The Obligate team takes this risk very seriously and has taken the necessary steps to ensure the safety and security of our smart contracts. The most recent version of the smart contracts has been through a rigorous audit process by two reputable security firms OtterSec and Sec3.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the smart contracts used on Obligate, please reach out to us at [email protected], we're happy to help.
