🔒Security Score Card on LATTE

Have the contracts been audited by professional auditing firms?

Yes, our contracts have been audited by both Inspex and Peckshield. You can find both audit reports on our docs here.

What is the project’s inception date?

The project official launch date is the 19th of September 2021. You can find more details about our launch here.

Has your project even been involved with a hack or exploit?


What safety measures are in place to secure your protocols from centralization risk? What contracts are not under timelock? Who has multi-sig?

Our contracts are also owned by a 24-hour timelock. This means any changes made by our developers will have a 24-hour lag before becoming effective. During this time, the community will be able to review the changes and withdraw funds safely in case of suspicious updates.

However, during the first week of launch, timelock will be set to 6 hours to ensure our dev team can respond faster to any changes required. We will change the timelock period back to 24 hours starting the second week.

Does your token have a maximum supply cap?

LATTE tokens do not have a maximum supply cap. However, we’ve implemented multiple deflationary mechanisms to protect LATTE token holders from inflation. You can read more about these mechanics here.

Mint function. If Token does not have maximum supply, how is the mint function controlled?

There is no manual mint function — however any changes in emission must go through a 24-hour timelock.

Centralized treasury. If the protocol collects fees, where do they go and how are they controlled? Is there any kind of treasury or insurance fund under centralized control?

LatteSwap charges a 0.25% transaction fee for every trade. The collected fees will be distributed in the following ways:

  • 0.17% will be distributed to liquidity providers
  • 0.04% will go to our buyback & burn program
  • 0.04% will go to our development fund

Migration Function. Is there a migration function in the code? Why is this there and how to control this function from making a malicious action?


Upgradeable contracts. Are the contracts upgradeable? Why is this there and how to control this function from making a malicious action?

Yes, there are. However, in order to show our transparency, we will transfer ALL ownership of each upgradeable contract to timelock.

Third-party risk. What underlying external parties do your contracts rely on?

We currently do not rely on any third party contracts.

Where are tokens currently listed?

LATTE tokens are currently listed on our official site and PancakeSwap. Soon after launch we will engage with centralized exchanges for additional token listings. Please stay tuned for more details.

Please briefly describe the utility of your tokens and all the relevant tokenomics (e.g., burn, staking, locking, etc.)

There are currently three primary utilities for LATTE tokens:

1. Accrue value through platform economic benefits

LatteSwap has put in place multiple buyback & burn mechanics to help LATTE token holders capture platform economic benefits from just holding the tokens, as a portion of our platform revenue is allocated to these mechanics. When tokens are burned, their supply becomes more scarce, thereby increasing the value of the remaining tokens. You can find more details about our buyback & burn program here.

2. Participate in the governance process

LATTE token is LatteSwap’s governance token. This means that LATTE token holders will be able to vote on key decisions for LatteSwap including, but not limited to protocol parameters, rewards emission schedule, and the design of LatteSwap’s NFTs’ parameters. The governance process is scheduled to be implemented in Q4 of 2021. Please click here for more details.

3. Earn rewards in partner protocol tokens

One of LatteSwap’s planned key feature is our Drip Bar, where Baristas will be able to stake their LATTE tokens to receive rewards in the form of our partner protocol’s tokens. Drip bar is scheduled for launch in Q4 of 2021. Please click here for more details.

In the future, we will continue to add more utilities of LATTE, thereby increasing its value. More details will be provided soon.

Does your token have any advanced mechanics such as deflationary/rebase/reflexive?


Please share your project’s roadmap

You can find our project roadmap here.

What % of the token supply is/will be controlled by the team

The ~13% of the total supply will be controlled by the team and is sent to the Development Fund. The tokens that go towards the Development Fund are also subjected to the same lockup as other tokens.

What % of the token supply is controlled by investors? What is the token distribution model?

LatteSwap is a fair-launch project, meaning that there is no pre-sale or investor. If you’d like to learn more about our token distribtion model, please visit our tokenomics page here.

What monitoring or controls do you have in place that could catch issues, halt functions, or delay attacks to protect assets?

We have internal tools and scripts that monitors and notify us of any suspicious activities.

Do you have a bug bounty program in place/planned?

Yes —we currently have a live in-house bug bounty program with maximum rewards payout of $50K.
