Based on the major characteristics of the space e.g. anonymity, there are unfortunately many security threats. In this session, students will learn how to analyze typical projects.
There are two parts of the session: lecture and workshop
During the lecture part, students will learn the most important areas that should be analyzed. Based on around 70 different questions we will develop a strategy for how to define the potential risks related to rug pull, scams, and similar. Discussed analyzes can be easily used (reversed) to create a successful strategy for an own NFT project.
Students will be organized into 2-3 groups. Each group will have to analyze one NFT project. Each group will finish their exercise with a short presentation of their results (around 10 minutes).
