The Bali security audit contest, hosted by Sherlock, is now in full swing. Running through December 1st, this crucial phase in our impending upgrades is essential for guaranteeing the security of our code. Participants are engaged in a comprehensive review of the contracts, identifying potential vulnerabilities for our devs to address. For those interested in the contest’s progress, you can follow along here.

Built on Builder
This week’s featured DAO built on the Builder protocol is Purple DAO! Purple is a DAO whose goal is to proliferate and expand the Farcaster protocol and ecosystem. They fund small grants and retroactive rewards via Prop House and larger onchain proposals which proliferate Farcaster and/or build on top of the protocol. They recently upgraded their token artwork, so all tokens after #365 feature the Season 2 artwork commissioned in Prop 35 and deployed in Prop 45.
