Marinade is dedicated to improve the security of its users. For this reason, we are holding a bug bounty program to help strengthen our protocol even more.
Why a bug bounty?
Bug bounties are a common way of guaranteeing and improving the security of a protocol. If anyone discovers a bug or a loophole in our protocol, he can report it to our team and claim the associated bounty instead of abusing it.
By offering this option, we allow developers and hackers who find an exploit to be rewarded for it without causing any damage to the protocol or to the funds of our users.
Even with our protocol being audited by three different audit firms, we believe that we need to set an example in the Solana ecosystem and always aim for more security. This bug bounty is another way of raising our security level and a step towards this commitment.
Rewards by threat level
Bounties will be distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability. In order to assess the vulnerabilities, we will use the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification System. This is a simplified 5-level scale, with separate scales for websites/apps and smart contracts/blockchains, encompassing everything from consequence of exploitation to privilege required to likelihood of a successful exploit.
Smart Contracts and Blockchain bounties
Critical: Up to USD 250,000
High: USD 15,000
Critical vulnerabilities are further capped at 10% of economic damage, with the main consideration being the funds affected in addition to PR and brand considerations, at the discretion of the team.
However, there is a minimum payout of USD 50,000 for Critical bug reports.
Payouts are handled by the Marinade Finance team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in mSOL and MNDE.
