Risk Score

Know your risk, secure your future. Protecting yourself and your assets starts with understanding your level of risk.
Powered by Webacy's proprietary algorithms, machine learning models, and blockchain security data - our Risk Score analyzes various behavioral signals, ingests multiple data sources, and incorporates many detection endpoints for a continuously evolving risk profile.
The following key data points are included in determining your wallets' level of vulnerability:
  • Wallet age
  • Transactional activity
  • Interaction with smart contracts
  • Details of smart contracts
  • Approvals
  • Assets owned
  • Associated wallet risk (for example, if another wallet you interact with regularly becomes compromised, the system may flag those transactions as risky moving forward)
  • Publicly restricted wallet address lists
  • ...and much, much more

Individual Transaction Risk

In your Webacy dashboard, you may notice that each transaction is tagged with an individual "transaction risk." While it may seem like this is a primitive, the transaction risk score is derived from multiple risk points: address risk of the main account, the account it's interacting with, and in some cases, the asset that is being interacted with between the two.

Overall Wallet Risk

After running your initial wallet "scan," you'll notice a "Low," "Medium," or "High" appear in the upper left of your dashboard. This is your wallet's overall risk, and is derived from scanning, calculating, and interpreting every transaction in the wallet's history.


Clicking on any transaction in the dashboard will open a drop-down, exposing more information regarding the transaction risk. On the right-hand-side, you'll notice a column for "Issues." Each flagged issue will have a short description under each transaction.

Risk Score for Enterprise

Evaluating risk within your system is necessary to protect your company and your users. You can read a recent article on our blog about this topic.
There are two categories for Risk Score for Enterprise: Risk mitigation for your team and internal systems, and Risk mitigation for your platform - bringing extra value to your end-users.
  1. 1.
    Risk Mitgation for your team and internal systems As a project leader or stake-holder, it is your responsibility to make sure any account, key, or member with access is acting securely. We've seen it happen - team members steal from company funds, founders getting hacked and having a treasury drained, even large sales of tokens that dramatically impact the stability of an entire ecosystem. Webacy has tools to help you assess, monitor, and act, in any given situation. Ex. use Wallet Watch to monitor all signing accounts on a multisig Ex. use Risk Score to assess the risk of wallets you are sending critical amounts of project tokens to Ex. use Panic Button to have a failsafe in case of emergency
