CertiK Completes Comprehensive Security Audit of Automated Market Maker on the XRP Ledger

New York, July 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CertiK, a leader in blockchain security and auditing, is proud to announce the successful completion of a comprehensive security audit for XLS-30d, an innovative Automated Market Maker (AMM) built on the XRP Ledger (XRPL). The XRPL is a Layer 1 open-source, energy-efficient, and decentralized blockchain powered by a global developer community.

The AMM, developed under the technical specification XLS-30d proposed by Ripple has been designed to extend the exchange functionality and utility for XRPL token holders and builders on the XRP Ledger. CertiK’s audit was an extensive process, meticulously examining the underlying smart contract architecture for potential vulnerabilities and assessing the overall security of the AMM implementation.

“Our main goal at CertiK is to help build a safer, more secure blockchain ecosystem,” said Jason Jiang, Chief Business Officer at CertiK. “XRPL’s AMM implementation represents an important evolution in decentralized exchange functionality, and we’re honored to have been able to ensure it meets the highest standard of security.”

Key features of the XLS-30d AMM, as validated by CertiK, include a protocol native build, a continuous auction mechanism, single-sided liquidity provision, no Miner Extractable Value (MEV) or front-running, and CLOB DEX integration.

The XRP Ledger’s inherent advantages—extremely low transaction cost, fast block times, fair transaction ordering—make it suitable for all participants within the AMM ecosystem. The XLS.30D proposal reflects the XRPL’s advanced capabilities and broad utility.

CertiK’s audit confirms that the AMM built on the XRPL meets the highest standards of security, demonstrating CertiK and Ripple’s shared commitment to advancing the security and reliability of the global blockchain ecosystem.
