Code Reviews

Unlike most crypto analysts, we make a specific effort to delve into the code of the blockchain projects we review. We may not always get unfettered access to the private source code, but we are often granted a sneak preview of the tech – which is analyzed by our resident blockchain code expert, Andre Cronje, a software developer and architect for over 20 years.

Our code reviews of public GitHubs are especially helpful for those who are seeking to do serious due diligence on the projects they are considering backing – but as always, please read the disclaimers and remember that we are not offering financial advice, just providing a service that we hope will be of use to the savvy cryptocurrency enthusiast.
