-<h1>2021-07: Code Blau GmbH deploys first external Taler auditor</h1>

- We received a grant from <a href="https://nlnet.nl/">NLnet
- foundation</a> with the goal to qualify <a href="https://codeblau.de/">Code Blau</a> GmbH
- to act as an external auditor for GNU Taler.
- To do this, we created a <a href="https://docs.taler.net/taler-auditor-manual.html">guide</a>
- that describes how to deploy a Taler auditor and then practiced the
- steps using the existing Taler exchange deployment at <a href="https://bfh.ch/">BFH</a>.
- Code Blau wrote a <a href="https://taler.net/papers/taler-auditor-setup-202108.pdf">report</a>
- detailing all the steps taken. Finally, we have created a
- <a href="https://taler.net/papers/codeblau-bank.pdf">draft</a> of
- the kind of business agreement that Code Blau would enter with banks
- operating the Taler payment system.
- We thank CodeBlau for their work, and NLnet and the European
- Commission's Horizion 2020 <a href="https://www.ngi.eu/">NGI initiative</a>
- for funding this work.
