Web3 Security Podcast

This month we hosted three amazing guests for our web3 security podcast. The DeFi Safety team shared web3 best practices, as well as useful tips on how to use security data and ranking to make informed decisions. Niv from Hexagate shared his journey as a white hat, from web2 security to finding vulnerabilities in Ledger and recently in the Polygon bridge. He shared some of the most common attack vectors, as well as some useful tips and advice to those looking to start a career in web3 security.

Listen to the podcast on Spotify, and follow Hats Finance on Twitter to join us live on future episodes.
