Program Overview

Scientix is a future-yield-backed synthetic asset platform on Binance Smart Chain. Scientix is a self-repaying loan, no liquidation. Scientix provides users advances on yield farming through a synthetic token that represents a fungible claim on any underlying collateral.

Scientix Protocol has the following functionalities: depositing BUSD to borrow scUSD, transmuting scUSD to BUSD, liquidation, staking, etc. The initial kind of collateral Scientix supports is BUSD. In the future, it may support other assets as well.

Scientix Protocol makes single-asset yield farming more efficient. It gives users a flexible line of credit for their future yield. Users can enter and exit anytime without committing to long lockups. For more information about Scientix, please visit https://scientix.finance/

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
  • Theft of unclaimed yield
  • Freezing of unclaimed yield
  • Freezing of funds
  • 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.

A PoC is required for Critical and High severity Smart Contract/Blockchain bug reports.

Known issues raised in the following audit reports would be considered out-of-scope: https://github.com/sec-bit/scientix-audit-report/blob/main/Scientix_Protocol_Report_EN.pdf
