On June 12, 2016, the Ethereum community suffered from a massive hack, about $64 million ETH (15 percent of ether in circulation) got hacked from the DAO through an exploit found within its smart contracts. It divided the Ethereum core community between two groups both with clashing ideology for a solution to move forward leading with the majority agreeing to accept a hard fork and leaving the rest to continue on an alternate parallel reality of the original Ethereum blockchain anchored by the Ethereum Classic.

Join us to learn how MythX, a smart contract security platform, and ConsenSys Diligence, a security-focused group, are working together to build, test, audit and secure smarts contracts so what happened in 2016 doesn’t happen ever again because of a vulnerability in the smart contract. They’ll talk about other recent hacksand what they're doing to keep the Ethereum ecosystem secured.
