I would like to raise the concern of the auction contract being exploited. For example, any bugs/flaws in the implementation potentially cause domain names being sniped at a lower or $0 price.
I appreciate the due-diligence which has been done by the devs. I work for a large software corporation. Based on my experience, it is a good practice to have a mitigation plan. Also, the floating number is error-prone.
So, what could be done if the contract is exploited? As a blackbox mitigation, is it feasible to do an emergency deployment to revert the contract back to the linear $100K (or even higher) solution?
