This bug bounty program is focused on their smart contracts and is focused on preventing thefts and freezing of principal of any amount, unclaimed yield of any amount.

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.

A suggestion for a fix is required for Critical and High vulnerabilities for the provision of a reward.

Payouts are handled by the DAO Ventures team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in USDT or DVD, at the discretion of the team.

Smart Contracts and Blockchain

USD $10,000
USD $7,500
USD $5,000

Assets in Scope

No GitHub is currently publicly accessible. However, no PoC is required. In the event of a discrepancy with regards to the validity of a bug and the provision of a PoC is deemed useful, the DAO Ventures team may provide discretionary access to the GitHub repository.

All smart contracts of DAOventures can be found at https://daoventures.gitbook.io/daoventures/contracts/contract-addresses. However, only those in the Assets in Scope table are considered as in-scope of the bug bounty program.
