Security, Fees and Governance

Is Auctus Safe? Has Auctus been audited?

The security of Auctus protocol is our highest priority. To ensure top-notch security, Auctus protocol smart contracts were audited by Open Zeppelin and have undergone rigorous internal testing. We also have an ongoing bug bounty program where community members can report any bugs or vulnerabilities.

Who controls the Auctus protocol?

The Auctus protocol allows a single address to modify parameters, create new options series, add new strike assets and change the template for tokens that will be created in the future. For the existing tokens, there is no admin key, meaning the protocol is noncustodial and only you have access to your funds. The admin key is currently administered by the Auctus team, but our goal is transitioning the control from our core team to the AUC token holders.

Are there fees on Auctus?

Trading fees: 2.5% of premium
