Get your smart contracts audited: Smart Contract vulnerabilities are the leading cause of DeFi hacks. It's crucial to have your smart contracts audited by reputable auditing firms.
Use multi-sig wallets: Multi-signature wallets require multiple parties to sign off on a transaction, which adds an extra layer of security. This can help prevent private key theft and unauthorized access to your assets.
Avoid hot wallets: Hot wallets are connected to the internet and are more susceptible to hacking attempts. Consider using cold storage wallets, which are not connected to the internet, for long-term storage of your assets.
Be cautious with publicly callable functions: Publicly callable functions in smart contracts can be accessed by anyone on the blockchain, including hackers. It's important to limit access to these functions and ensure they are properly validated to prevent attacks.
Stay informed and up to date: DeFi is an ever-evolving space, and new vulnerabilities may arise. Stay informed by following reputable sources and consider implementing additional security measures as needed.
