Program Overview

Divergence is a decentralized platform for hedging, trading DeFi-native asset volatility, with its flagship product being an AMM-based marketplace trading synthetic binary options.

To fill this gap, Divergence is developing a range of decentralized volatility derivatives and volatility index products with the aim of becoming the go-to platform for:

This bug bounty program is focused on their smart contracts and app and is focused on preventing the following impacts:

  • Thefts and freezing of principal of any amount
  • Thefts and freezing of unclaimed yield of any amount
  • Website goes down or malfunctions
  • Theft of treasury DAO funds
  • Deletion of user data

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.

Payout** At the time of this program publication Divergence is not live with its mainnet yet. “Critical” bounty is currently offered at USD 50 000.

Once Divergence’s V1 product is live, this page will update periodically to reflect changes in TVL and adjust “Critical” bounty cap accordingly.The maximum payout for a “Critical” bounty is 10% of the total value locked of the contracts where the bug is discovered, capped at $1,000,000. The minimum payout for this level of bugs is USD 50 000.

A PoC and a suggestion for a fix is required for all Critical bug reports. Additionally, a PoC is required for all other Web/App bug reports.

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