Zilliqa project launches bounty bug for mainnet

Zilliqa project launches bounty bug for mainnet

The bug bounty program gives global developers the opportunity to test the mainnet of any project on the presence of vulnerabilities and capitalize on this. The implementation of this program is normal in the world of cryptocurrencies, as well as beyond. So, a similar reward program was initiated by the Tron Foundation immediately after the release of mainnet in the middle of last year. Following this tradition, now the Zilliqa (ZIL) team intends to test their own mainnet.

Reward for searching for bugs in the ZIL network

Zilliqa team invited everyone availabledevelopers for testing and ensuring the security of their own blockchain, cryptocurrency and the implementation of smart contracts. Vulnerability Finder is managed by Bugcrowd.

Depending on the severity of the error detected, the reward will range from $ 150 to $ 5,000. Vulnerabilities were divided into four categories as follows.

1st category:

  • Remote execution of Zilliqa node code;
  • Remote execution of the lookup node code Zilliqa;
  • Any methods of withdrawing or creating funds.
  • 2nd category:

  • Remote execution of the Zilliqa Savant development environment code;
  • Security error or problems related to key generation, encryption, decryption and verification;
  • Vulnerabilities in smart contracts that could destabilize all ecosystem ecosystems.
  • 3 category:

  • Denial of service for lookup node Zilliqa;
  • Denial of service Zilliqa nodes;
  • Denial of service at IDE Zilliqa Savant.
  • 4th category:

  • Denial of service (inability to execute the negotiation protocol) for the lookup node of Zilliqa;
  • Denial of service (inability to execute the negotiation protocol) Zilliqa nodes.
  • Thanks to the reward program, the project intends to identify any possible vulnerabilities in order to provide its users with a complete solution.
