Challenge Overview

Mythril is a security analysis tool for Ethereum smart contracts, written in Python. It uses the LASER-ethereum symbolic virtual machine to detect various types of issues. It can be used to analyze source, or as a nmap-style black-box blockchain scanner (an “ethermap”, if you will).

In this challenge we want you to implement unit tests for Mythril and LASER-ethereum. You will find a few existing tests in Mythril repo, but we need more of them. The target test coverage is above 80% (the more the better); be sure to setup a way to generate unit test coverage report, and implement the testing in similar way for both repositories. Follow the best practices for Python and unit-testing, and add the section on unit-testing into READMEs of both repos.

This challenge will be judged by subjective scorecard. In their scoring reviewers are expected to take into account whether: (1) the minimal test coverage has been achieved; (2) the quality of test setup and code; (3) the final test coverage.

Final Submission Guidelines

Submit Git patches for Mythril and LASER-ethereum repositoires, based on the latest commits in their master branches (12f90a3feb003c3a96b64b526e5e093194539bdd and 161c8b55528d9343f58e6438e82a038ba82e8702, at the moment of writing).
