The treasury funds are used to cover the expenses involved in running VertoTrade. These expenses include salaries, audits, prizes, hosting, upkeep, bounties, etc.

# Is VertoTrade protected from flashloan attacks?

VertoTrade's vault has anti-flashloan protection. VertoTrade’s VERTO token isn’t vulnerable to flash loan attacks. Unlike vulnerable tokens, VERTO token minting is predefined, and can’t be adjusted in a single transaction. Ownership cannot be transferred outside of OptimusMercator contract.

VertoTrade’s other smart contracts, like IFO and AutoPool, are protected as well; they prevent other contracts from interacting with them, reducing the scope of vector attacks.
