About Phylax

Phylax Systems is a tech startup building an open-source security protocol for securing decentralized applications (DApps) on L2 networks by actively censoring hacks on the underlying network.

Our team solves one of the most challenging problems in Web3: Security.

The decision for the Phylax team to work on hack prevention came directly from our own experience with a hack. Having gone through the devastating results of a hack, we knew that we needed to do something about it.

Since the early beginnings of our industry, over $10B have been lost to preventable hacks, while in July 2023, there were over 33 hacks in a single month!
