Status Network Token Bug Bounty (up to $50,000 per bug)

  • We are starting our bug bounty program for all contracts and software relevant for our upcoming Contribution Period.

    Major bugs will be rewarded up to $25,000 (in BTC or ETH). Much higher rewards are possible (up to $50,000) in case of very severe vulnerabilities.

    Most of the rules on apply. For example: First come, first serve. Issues that have already been submitted by another user or are already known (such as these) to the team are not eligible for bounty rewards.


    The scope of our bug bounty program includes all contracts related to the Contribution Period and the Status Network Token code.


    As of this post, the bug bounty program is considered started and valid reports of bugs will be compensated moving forward. The bounty program will continue even after the token launch.


    We are using the OWASP risk assessment methodology to determine the bug’s level of threat to the sale.

    Note: Up to $100 USD

    Low: Up to $2000 USD

    Medium: Up to $10,000 USD

    High: Up to $20,000 USD

    Critical: Up to $50,000 USD


    An attack identified that could steal raised funds would be considered a critical threat.

    If there was a way for someone to spend more tokens than owned or to mint their own SNT, the bug would be considered a high threat.

    Please note that the submission’s quality will factor into the level of compensation. A high quality submission includes an explanation of how the bug can be reproduced, a failing test case, and a fix that makes the test case pass. High quality submissions may be awarded amounts higher than the amounts specified above.

    Note that bounties will be paid in ETH and paid auditors contracted by Status are not eligible for bounty compensation. If you find a bug, we can also offer the ability to participate in the Contribution Period, at the same rate as everyone else (10,000 SNT per 1 ETH).
