Program Overview

Autonolas enables DAOs to create, run and own autonomous services that power next-gen apps in DAO operations, treasury management and beyond. Autonolas protocol provides means to build, register, manage and secure autonomous services: off-chain services which run as a multi-agent-system (MAS) and are replicated on a temporary consensus gadget (blockchain) while being crypto-economically secured on a public blockchain, hence offering robustness, transparency and decentralization off-chain.

Rewards by Threat Level

Rewards are distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability based on the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification System V2.2. This is a simplified 5-level scale, with separate scales for websites/apps, smart contracts, and blockchains/DLTs, focusing on the impact of the vulnerability reported.

Critical smart contract vulnerabilities are capped at 10% of economic damage, primarily taking into consideration funds at risk, but also PR and branding aspects, at the discretion of the team. However, there is a minimum reward of USD 25 000.

All Critical, High, and Medium Smart Contract bug reports must come with a PoC, have an end-effect impact, and an asset-in-scope in order to be considered for a reward. Explanations and statements are not accepted as PoC and code is required.

The following vulnerabilities are not eligible for a reward:

Autonolas requires KYC to be done for all bug bounty hunters submitting a report and wanting a reward. The information needed is an invoice with Name, Address, and Country of the hacker or a legal entity used for transactions. If the hacker is based in Switzerland they need to account for VAT in the invoice. The collection of this information will be done by the Autonolas team.

Payouts are handled by the Autonolas team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in USDT and USDC, with the choice of the ratio at the discretion of the team.
