As the web3 industry continues to grow, regulatory tax scrutiny and ever-present security threats continue to rise. Toku and Quantstamp are teaming up to help alleviate these specific pain points that many web3 companies face today. Through this partnership, these two leading companies will provide organizations connected to blockchain a streamlined solution that offers them both enhanced security protection and the wall-to-wall compliance capabilities needed as this industry expands. Specifically, that will include a two-step process that includes a comprehensive code review and a tax review for clients at the outset of initial engagements.
