Program Overview

Popcorn is a new paradigm for DeFi where yield-generating products simultaneously fund social impact beneficiaries at no additional cost to the user. These beneficiaries are nonprofits, charities, and grassroot projects working in the areas of environment, education, open source, and inequality. Members of the PopcornDAO (POP token holders) are eligible to participate in all aspects of DAO governance, including beneficiary nominations and grant elections. They determine which beneficiaries receive a percentage of earned protocol fees on a recurring basis, and are incentivized to do so with POP rewards.

Along with directly funding community-selected beneficiaries, one of Popcorn’s key goals is to be a bridge between the social impact world and DeFi, helping them onramp into DeFi and educating them about the opportunities of DeFi and web3 to achieve social impact goals through community-led and equitable means. Popcorn will introduce them not only to DeFi but all the benefits of decentralization. In summary, Popcorn’s purpose is to aid the current revolutionary shift in global systems through accessible DeFi products that align financial wellbeing with positive global impact.

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
  • Temporary freezing of funds
  • Unable to call contract
  • Gas drainage / freezing of funds caused by gas overflow
  • Smart contract fails to deliver promised returns

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.

Critical vulnerabilities are further capped at 10% of economic damage, with the main consideration being the funds affected in addition to PR and brand considerations, at the discretion of the team. However, there is a minimum of USD 25 000 for Critical bug reports.

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