Rewards by Threat Level

Rewards are distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability based on the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification System V2.2. This is a simplified 5-level scale, with separate scales for websites/apps, smart contracts, and blockchains/DLTs, focusing on the impact of the vulnerability reported.

All High and Critical Smart Contract reports must come with a PoC with an end-effect impacting an asset-in-scope in order to be considered for a reward. Explanations and statements are not accepted as PoC and code is required.

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

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

Assets in scope

All smart contracts of Index Coop can be found at https://github.com/IndexCoop/index-coop-smart-contractsand https://github.com/IndexCoop/index-protocol. However, only those in the Assets in Scope table are considered as in-scope of the bug bounty program.

The current implementation and any further updates to the implementation contracts are considered in scope. When reporting a bug, please make sure to select the relevant proxy smart contract as the target, if applicable.

If an impact can be caused to any other asset managed by Index Coop that isn’t on this table but for which the impact is in the Impacts in Scope section below, you are encouraged to submit it for the consideration by the project. This only applies to Critical impacts.
