Program Overview

Brahma is a non-custodial protocol that activates and manages liquidity across chains and dApps.

For more information about Brahma, please visit https://app.brahma.fi/vault/pmusdc.

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.

All Smart Contract bug reports must come with a PoC with an end-effect impacting 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 bug report must be directly exploitable by a party (i.e the vulnerability must be exploitable directly by a user/party according to the PoC) in order to be valid and eligible for a reward, and not be dependent on external events (i.e An asset price should move by X, or an external protocol the contracts are interacting with needs to malfunction for the issue to be realizes/exploitable)

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 17,500 to 35,000 depending on the type of funds at risk.

Smart Contracts (Critical)

  • Loss of user funds:
    • 10% of assets at risk, minimum USD 35, 000; maximum USD 150, 000
  • Loss of non-user funds (e.g. treasury):
    • 10% of assets at risk, minimum USD 17, 500; maximum USD 150, 000

Smart Contracts (High)

  • Temporary freezing of funds for more than 7 days (other than unclaimed yield):
    • 10% of assets at risk, minimum USD 5, 000; maximum USD 25, 000
  • Permanent freezing/theft of unclaimed yield:
    • 10% of assets at risk, minimum USD 2, 000; maximum USD 25, 000

All vulnerabilities marked in the https://github.com/Brahma-fi/brahma-security/tree/master/audits are not eligible for a reward.

Payouts are handled by the Brahma team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in USDC.

Assets in scope

All smart contracts of Brahma can be found at https://github.com/brahma-fi/protected_moonshots/. However, only those in the Assets in Scope table are considered as in-scope of the bug bounty program.

If an impact can be caused to any other asset managed by Brahma that isn’t on this table but for which the impact is in the Impacts in Scope section below, you are encouraged to submit it for the consideration by the project. This only applies to Critical and High impacts.
