LINKCHECK team will then reach out through the provided e-mail to schedule a first interview. During this interview a battery of questions will be given to the applicants, going over their blockchain experience, history, and previous background, as well as questions about their project, goals, aims, and how well they understand the current dynamics of the crypto environment. Additional questions will be asked regarding the security of their smart contracts, what audits they will partake in, or are underway (of which, proofs must be provided) in addition to security and code reviews. Note that the LINKCHECK team is not responsible for code reviews or security audits, and a LINKCHECK pass does not necessarily mean a given smart contract or set of smart contracts built by the applicants are stable, safe, or secure. This is the task of auditing firms - LINKCHECK merely audits the ethical motives of projects and their leaders to judge whether they are trustworthy from an organizational perspective.
