General risks and safeguards

  1. The dual liquidation strategy balances the risks associated with over-dependency on liquidators by ensuring all bad loans are timely liquidated independent of the network constraints. This critical feature mitigates adverse risks stemming from a sell-cascade event.

  2. Whitelisted smart contracts: Access to Hashstack’s core functionality is limited to direct interaction from the user's wallet or through allowed smart contracts, mitigating the scope for bad players from discovering a vulnerability and exploiting it through smart contract automated actions.

  3. Compartmentalised supply & borrow through minimum commitment periods improves Hashstack's ability to predict liquidity availability.

  4. Looping & flash loans are not permitted. However, delegated contract interactions are permitted for allowlisted accounts and designated liquidators.

  5. Tier 1 capital. Hashstack recognises that no amount of risk & security measures ensure a fool-proof system. For this reason, Hashstack will build a tier 1 capital of 15% of total deposits to absorb adverse risks. This capital will be built over a period of 18 months.

  6. Insurance: A trusted insurance provider will insure all user-provided liquidity up to US $1,000,000.

  7. Audits: Hashstack's contracts underwent one round of audit. Currently, a bug bounty is active. Two additional security audits will be performed on Hashstack's starknet contracts before the re-genesis version release.

  8. Bridges: Hashstack relies on its internal relayer built atop Stargate to transfer assets between ETH L1 & Starknet L2.
