This bug bounty program is focused on their smart contracts and is focused on preventing:

  • Loss of user funds staked (principal) by freezing or theft
  • Loss of governance funds
  • Governance vote manipulation
  • Theft of unclaimed yield
  • Freezing of unclaimed yield
  • Temporary freezing of funds for at least 30 minutes

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 bug 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.

Known issues highlighted in the following audit reports are considered to be out-of-scope:

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