Bitcoin Q&A: Protocol Development Security

- Advertisement -

What are the odds of “rogue developers” who introduce vulnerabilities? What happens if the digital signature algorithm is compromised? Is trust in hardware wallet developers and the firmware update process a problem?

Note: I was mostly talking about Bitcoin and other popular open blockchains which have a large development communities and a robust review process before any new code is put in production. The risk of vulnerabilities introduced by developers is different for each project, and having open-source code does not prevent it if no one is reading or testing it.

These questions were part of the monthly live Patreon Q&A session for April (rescheduled to May 5th). If you want early-access to talks and a chance to participate in the monthly live Q&As with Andreas, become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/aantonop
