Result Summary

Ethos‘ audit of the Aping AVAX smart contract has concluded with a PASSING result. The initial review identified a number of non-critical issues. The remaining report includes all issues identified in the initial review, as well as the revised status post resolution by the team.

  • The smart contract is a variant of the ‘miner‘ meta
  • It allows users to deposit network native tokens into the contract
  • Deposits are locked on deposit and redistributed to users over time
  • The rate of redistributions approximately 8% daily and varies based on the rate of increase of total value locked
  • There is a referral bonus distributed to referrers of approximately 12.5%, although the website states an 8% referral bonus
  • There is an 8% dev fee applied on all deposits and withdrawals
  • Of the 8% withdrawal fee, 3% is paid by the user and 5% is paid by the pool
  • Value locked within the contract cannot be manually removed by the owner
  • The contract cannot be closed or shut off at any point after deployment

To conclude, this smart contract functions as it is designed. It is not ruggable by the owner or any other entities through attack vectors currently known in the EVM community.
