In Xataka you’ve been told in more detail about the smart contracts, this is why we’re going to abstain of talking again about the new fundamentals of them. Also, we analyze for you from these lines, many of the most advanced characteristics and their potential risks, from a point of view more original and less common. But the fact that we’re going to focus in the today’s analysis is in its vulnerabilities, and the loose ends that Ethers has already left in the cryptosphere, despite its short life.
The cryptonews colleagues published a compilation that summed up the different characteristics of the “failed” smart contracts, quoting the research about it that has the title of “FindingTheGreedy, Prodigal, and SuicidalContracts at Scale”. They also included the Ethers’ “orphans” imports that have been left on the tortuous path of the programming on Solidity, the language for the development of these digital contracts in the Ethereum universe that was created with great vision by Buterin.
As you have read by yourselves, these “failed” smart contracts are subdivided in three principal types. The first of them are Prodigy Contracts, these are vulnerable of being hacked so that the destiny address of the Ethers could potentially be fraudulent, in which the cryptocurrencies like rain of millions for the censurably graceful that has interposed between the contracting and the legitimate destiny of the Ethers.
