Program Overview

Glow is an ecosystem of Web3 Terra dApps super-powered by DeFi yields. The Glow Protocol's role is to govern and set the vision for this world of mainstream ready dApps. The first projects within the Glow Ecosystem are Glow Lotto, a prize-linked savings account and Glow Creators, social money reimagined.

The Glow Token (GLOW) is Glow Protocol's governance token. GLOW tokens can be deposited to create new governance polls, which can be voted on by users that have staked GLOW. GLOW is designed to capture a portion of the yield collected by Glow dApps, allowing its value to scale linearly with Glow's assets under management (AUM). Glow distributes protocol fees and future project airdrops to GLOW stakers pro-rata to their stake, benefitting long-term stakers as adoption of Glow increases -- stakers of GLOW are incentivized to propose, discuss, and vote for proposals that further merit the protocol.

For more information about Glow, please visit https://glowyield.com/. This bug bounty program is focused on their smart contracts and is focused on preventing:

  • Thefts and freezing of principal of any amount
  • Thefts and freezing of unclaimed yield of any amount
  • Theft of governance funds
  • Governance activity disruption

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.

All Smart Contract bug reports require a PoC and a suggestion for a fix to be eligible for a reward.

All vulnerabilities marked in the Oak security review are not eligible for a reward.

Payouts are handled by the Glow team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in GLOW and UST, with the choice of the ratio at the discretion of the team.
