Program Overview

HaloDAO is driving liquidity to regional, asset backed stablecoins by building a stablecoin optimized AMM and stablecoin focused Lending Market and linkages with existing wallets and exchanges around the world. With a greater supply of region specific stablecoins, users will be able to access the permissionless Decentralised Finance (DeFi) economy, thereby lowering the barrier to individual financial participation in a region of the world with a high potential of growth and impact.

For more information about HaloDAO, please visit their website at https://www.halodao.com/.

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

  • Freezing of contract’s holdings
  • Theft of yield
  • Token holders temporarily unable to transfer holdings
  • Transient consensus failures
  • Smart contract drainage
  • Smart contract failed to return promised returns
  • Contract consumers unbounded gas
  • Block stuffing
  • Gas griefing
  • Griefing denial of service
  • Cryptographic flaws
  • Leak of user data
  • Deletion of user data
  • Site goes down
  • Accessing sensitive pages without authorization
  • Users spoofing other users
  • UI level bugs
  • Math formula discrepancies

Rewards by Threat Level

Rewards are distributed according to the following vulnerability classification system:

Smart Contracts Severity LevelImpact
Critical- Empty or freeze the contract's holdings (e.g. economic attacks, flash loans, reentrancy, MEV, logic errors, integer
- Cryptographic flaws
High- Token holders temporarily unable to transfer holdings
- Users spoof each other
- Theft of yield
- Transient consensus failures
Medium- Contract consumes unbounded gas
- Block stuffing
- Griefing denial of service (i.e. attacker spends as much in gas as damage to the contract)
- Gas griefing
- Math formula discrepancies
Low- Contract fails to deliver promised returns, but doesn't lose value

Rewards for web/app vulnerabilities are distributed according to the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification. Please refer to the portion under prioritized vulnerabilities to check the web/app vulnerabilities that are covered in the scope for rewards.

All web/app bug reports must come with a PoC in order to be considered for a reward. Additionally, all Medium, High, and Critical Smart Contract bug reports must come with a PoC.

Critical web/app and smart contract bug reports are capped at 10% of economic damage, primarily taking into consideration funds at risk, but also taking into consideration branding and PR aspects, at the discretion of the team. However, for smart contract vulnerabilities, the reward is a minimum of USD 50 000.

The final reward amount for other severity levels will be determined by HaloDAO on a case-by-case basis. By submitting a bug report, you agree that HaloDAO has the final decision on the amount to be rewarded.

Assets in scope

For additional reference, the HaloDAO GitHub can be found at https://github.com/HaloDAO/. However, only the assets listed as in-scope in this table are considered covered under the bug bounty program.

AmmRewards.sol () can be found as halo-rewards-v1/AmmRewards.sol at master · HaloDAO/halo-rewards-v1 and rHalohalo.sol() can be found as halo-rewards-v1/Halohalo.sol at master HaloDAO/halo-rewards-v1.

Only bugs that directly affect the web/app items listed in the Assets in Scope table are considered as in-scope of the bug bounty program. All others are out-of-scope.

Impacts in scope

Only the following impacts are accepted within this bug bounty program. All other impacts are not considered as in-scope, even if they affect something in the assets in scope table.
