DexCheck is your next generation, all-in-one analytics solution that gathers important data from Decentralized Exchanges and NFT projects to enable users to sort the signal from the noise and utilize updated figures to make smarter investment decisions and optimize their earning potential.

Data from freshly released liquidity pools, crypto tokens, NFTs, and market performance across various blockchain networks is being streamlined into understandable and instructive formats to assist investors in making investment decisions.

Web3 is still in its infancy. Like any new emerging technology, the nascent crypto industry has often been compared to a digital “Wild West” — a lawless place where there are so many creative hacks, phishing scams and other attacks out there,which likely leads to millions of dollars in losses.

Part of the reason why retail and institutional clients have less propensity to enter into the space is because of such incidents and situations creating elevated risk levels. Security issues matter more in Web3 than in Web2 since security risks are more about assets in Web3. Once a hack happens, it likely leads to millions of dollars in losses. And in the context of such a decentralized space, there is no recourse for any loss from such transactions. So Web3 security must be more proactive and prevention-oriented than Web2 security.

Besides providing real time DeFi/NFT statistics and insights, DexCheck aims to address security concerns and reduce the risk of financial loss by integrating with the Token security API service powered by GoPlus.

When a user tracks a new token on DexCheck’s New Tokens page, it would auto-detect any potential risks associated with the token in real-time. If any, an alert with a red flag mark would be notified to the user. In Charts, an user can check their favorite token’s insights and make a more detailed and comprehensive crypto analysis!

DexCheck places the safety of users’ assets as a top priority. GoPlus security engine keeps an eye on all those attack vectors 24/7 around the clock and would never stop scanning the security risks associated with the token behind the scenes–it is that would detect the risks of security for the token, checking over 30 safety indicators from contract code, transaction security to info security, including but not limited to: whether the contract is open sourced, whether there is an external call, whether it is mintable, whether there is any risks of security associated with the owner address, the amount of token holders, LP info, the percentage of buy/sell tax, whether it is honeypot and more.

The Token Security API service provided by GoPlus is one of the most complete and accurate security services for token data on the market. As of Jan 16th, 2023, a total of 2.33m+ tokens have been detected, 1.35M+ of them are tokens with risks and nearly 3 million times of calls happen per day. The database is currently automatically keeping on adding newly issued tokens in the market and doing security identification and detection for them, covering as fast as possible for as many tokens in the market as possible.

In addition to the Token security API, GoPlus also provides other security solutions associated with crypto assets,including a malicious address API, a NFT Security API, and Approval Security APIs.

GoPlus Malicious Address API

GoPlus Security Engine has integrated several public blockchains including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, HECO、Arbitrum、Avalanche and etc. Aggregating data sources from multiple security companies including SlowMist and BlockSec, GoPlus takes a leading spot in the market in terms of public blockchain compatibility(Supported public chains including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, HECO、Arbitrum、Avalanche, etc.), token standards supported(ERC 20,ERC 721 and ERC 1155 supported), library pattern diversity(data sources from multiple security companies which provided different type of code analysis patterns ), sync-up speed(maintain a library to keep up with the emerging honeypot tokens related addresses in the market) and coverage(the library has accumulated more than 80,000,000 of black addresses now , and it keeps up adding newly ones).

GoPlus NFT Security API

GoPlus NFT security API dominates the security market with full coverage of NFT projects(more than 160M) and the most verified NFTs ( more than 4M+ verified NFTs have been indexed so far).

In the context of more and more sneaky traps especially the innovative NFT honeypots and many more fake name NFT scams, GoPlus goes for NFT security detection on the over 20 security checkboxes in the contract level from whether it is open sourced, whether there is an agent, whether there is malicious behavior, whether there is a blacklist doubt, preventing users from getting scammed.

GoPlus Approval Security API:

GoPlus has released version 1 of Approval Security API, which would auto-detect the contracts that are requesting approval when users are doing Approval for a dApp in dex and browsers. Once any potential risks are detected, an alert with a red flag mark would be displayed, informing that NEVER click the confirm button.

The version 2 of Approval Security API would check the approval activities of a given wallet address in the past and auto-check if there are potential risks of security for the contracts you ever approved whatever it is ERC20,ERC721 NFT or ERC1155 standard.

Approval Security API V2 checks the risk of security for a contract that requests approval from the basic info, main security and the contract info around the token. An alert with a red flag mark would appear once any of the potential risks are detected.

Serving as the Web3 security infrastructure, GoPlus supports for all these assets issued on blockchains including Ethereum, BNB Chain, AVALANCHE, Polygon, and Harmony, which means that once any apps on those blockchains integrate the API services provided by GoPlus, they could provide security detection for their users on the tokens security, malicious addresses, NFT security and approval Security.
