nSLOC stands for 'Normalized Source Code', which is a custom measurement we use (among others) when evaluating the complexity of a codebase.
To get the NSLOC count of a file:
  1. 1.
    For all functions, reduce any multiline function declarations to a single line.
  2. 2.
    Remove all comments
  3. 3.
    Remove all empty lines
  4. 4.
    Count the remaining lines
PoC - Proof of Concept
A proof of concept (PoC) is a demonstration or experiment that seeks to validate the feasibility, functionality, and potential of a particular idea, concept, or method. Typically used in the early stages of development, a PoC demonstrates that a concept or theory has practical potential for real-world application. It doesn't aim to represent a finished product or solution but instead serves as a foundational step to verify that a certain idea can be developed further into a functional prototype or product.
QAs - Quality Assurance
QA reports are essential documents in software development and testing processes that highlight the status, progress, and potential issues of a particular product or system under evaluation. Here's a brief overview of what a QA report might entail:
The amazing community of auditors on
Sponsor Any protocol's team or developers willing to make their smart contracts more secure, and their users safe by sponsoring a smart contract auditing competition on


The complexity of a code base or smart contract, calculated using Solidity Core Metrics taking into consideration:
  • nSLOC
  • Number of contracts
And other parameters


Any submission done by a Hawk (auditor) to a contest reporting a bug or potential exploitation vector in a smart contract or codebase
