Empowering community governance
The 40 WONDERS make up a governance council that represents the interests of the WEMIX community by participating in on-chain voting processes for improving or changing WEMIX3.0’s protocol. They are also responsible for validating transactions and operating nodes on the mainnet to boost and maintain its integrity and security. Each member gets to choose their own WONDER number, and Verichains has joined as WONDER 12.

Recognized for its participation in investigating and mitigating some of the most notorious hacks to date in Web3 history, such as the Ronin Bridge and BNB Chain Bridge hacks, the company merges groundbreaking research with practical security solutions to deliver comprehensive protection solutions catered to the blockchain industry.
Verichains’ world-class security and cryptography research team has successfully identified critical vulnerabilities across the industry capable of causing disruptions worth billions of dollars through key actions like uncovering flaws within Multi-Party Computation (MPC) and Zero-Knowledge Proofs (ZKP) mechanisms developed by major vendors. As a trusted security partner to leading Web3 companies and cryptocurrency exchanges like BNB Chain, Polygon Labs, Aptos, Klaytn, Bullish, DWF Labs and now WEMIX, Verichains leverages its background and expertise in traditional cybersecurity to be translated into the upcoming Web3 era, delivering cutting-edge solutions for a safer, more secure Web3 ecosystem.
