Beijing, April 30th — PeckShield Inc. (PeckShield), the industry-leading blockchain security company, announced join forces with Binance Smart Chain (BSC) ecosystem to enhance security implementations in a rapidly expanding Decentralized Finance sector.

Data shows that both transaction volume and unique active wallets (UAWs) on BSC have risen substantially. Since 2021 most DeFi platforms fall into the category of decentralized applications (dApps) built on top of smart contract-enriched blockchains — primarily BSC.

The growth of the market reinforces the importance of on-chain and off-chain monitoring to ensure the safe and responsible adoption of dApps. Utilizing PeckShield’s On-Chain & Off-Chain Monitoring Solution, the BSC community can automatically analyze digital asset transactions and receive reliable and timely risk assessment.

PeckShield will help BSC community contributors and projects to identify potential scams, phishing, rug pulls, and hacks, as well as tracking illicit asset flows and performing associated forensics.

“We’re thrilled to be involved and offer the security and intelligence service to the BSC community,” said Dr. Xuxian Jiang, Founder and CEO of PeckShield, “By having a comprehensive collaboration with the BSC community, we are able to gain unprecedented insights and leverage our years of experience and knowledge to bolster the security of the whole ecosystem, especially on the analysis and investigation of ongoing threats and malicious activities.”

“It’s great to see that security-focused businesses are eager to work on the BSC network. To protect the ecosystem, they need to analyze threats and prevent malicious activity before it occurs, and I’m happy to see that this task is being taken upon by a team with years of experience and knowledge. We welcome PeckShield in the BSC community, and we’re confident that their work will bolster the security of the whole ecosystem.”
