When it comes to cryptocurrencies, a lot of community members have been asking to see more code reviews being done. AeroCoin happily obliged, as the results of a recently conducted peer review have been posted.
Especially the AeroCooin anonymity feature as reviewed closely, as this feature is one of the most important ones. As the coins you send will be split into many different transactions, and merged again afterwards when being sent to the receiver’s addresses, it’s good to get a review done.
“The code used for obfuscating the original senders address works really well, and is written extremely well too.” This is one very interesting quote from Mammix2, who is the person conducting this code review.
The overall conclusion is there is nothing hidden in the code , no surprises, no hidden pre-mine, or any other nasty surprises. All the conditions are are formatted and nested properly. Having the testnet available also goes to show the AeroCin developers mean business.
“While reviewing the code i noticed some very familiar portions of the coding that I’ve only seen in some of the most successful well coded coins of late, and not any of the recent badly executed coins, that for example don’t even have TestNet available and some really bad round logo slapped in the wallet.
Aero is different. It’s well coded, its originally based on a bomb proof code base i personally know very well, and the coding related to the Anonymous sending is spot on”
