“We are excited to open-source the smart contracts powering the new dYdX. Alongside the contracts, we’re also open sourcing a fully-featured Typescript library which makes building on dYdX easy. The codebase has undergone months of rigorous testing internally-all production smart contracts are tested and have 100% branching code-coverage. We also had two external security audits with no critical bugs found.”
