Bridge Mutual is a decentralized, discretionary coverage platform. It allows users to provide coverage to smart contracts, stablecoins and exchanges that they think are safe in return for yields and profit sharing. Likewise, other users may purchase coverage to protect their assets. Its platform allows users to provide coverage, decide on claim payouts, as well as get compensated for taking part in the ecosystem.

The bug bounty program covers its smart contracts and is focused on the prevention of loss of user funds.

Rewards by Threat Level

Rewards are distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability based on 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.

Payouts are handled by the Bridge Mutual team directly and are denominated in USD. Payouts less than or equal to USD 1000 are done in USDC. Payouts greater than that are done in BMI.

Critical smart contract vulnerabilities are further capped at 10% of economic damage, primarily taking into consideration the amount of funds at risk but also PR and branding effects, though only at the discretion of the team. However, there is a minimum reward of USD 50 000.

This bug bounty program has an overall pool cap of USD 2 000 000. In the event of multiple active reports going above the pool cap, the rewards are distributed on a first-come- first-serve basis. This pool cap will be updated as rewards are paid out.
