In the past week, we’ve shown that Synereo’s formally-verified smart contracting language would have prevented the attack on The DAO.

A more approachable piece has been published on The Merke: DAO Attack Nullified Using Synereo’s Smart Contracting Language.

We believe Synereo is the leading platform for creating secure and scalable decentralized contracts and applications, and are committed to bringing these tools to the developer community post-haste.
