Chengdu based Beosin is a privately-held blockchain firm and one of the earliest blockchain companies in the cybersecurity field. Having audited more than 500 smart contracts worldwide and provided security services to more than 1,000 blockchain projects, Beosin takes the lead in developing automated formal verification platforms for smart contracts.

Founded by Ivy League computer science professors, Certik built its own security system from the ground up and has ensured the correctness and safety of numerous blockchain projects.
OKEx CEO Jay Hao said the testnet and launch of OkChain are coming soon. As a new blockchain network that fully supports state sharding and fast consensus, OkChain is an eagerly anticipated blockchain and OKEx has announced more partnerships to provide more use cases for its native token $OKB:
- Use $OKB to top up mobile and fuel cards on Litex.io
