2 min readMay 22, 2024


We are pleased to share with you that the audit for Horizon Protocol’s Futures Account Management System (FAMS) has been successfully completed. The audit encompasses all the new code implemented to support the integration of the highly anticipated FAMS, which enables many features such as stop and limit orders on the Horizon Protocol Futures Exchange.

For those unfamiliar, the FAMS is a middle-layer smart contract system that allows traders to intelligently manage their margin across perpetual futures markets and enables a suite of conditional orders (limit, stop, take-profit, and stop-loss), by combining many ordered commands or actions into a single on-chain transaction. The new system should greatly empower the capabilities of traders while simultaneously improving UX and the time needed to perform multi-step operations.

In summary, no critical issues were found during the audit. Only one medium-level issue and two low-level issues were detected. We are pleased to inform you that our development team has already resolved all of these issues. You can find the full report here.

We would like to thank AstraSec for their comprehensive auditing, helping us to ensure a safe environment for our users. We look forward to working together with them again in the future!
