Program Overview

Stader is a non-custodial smart contract based staking platform that helps you conveniently discover and access staking solutions.

In the short term, Stader is building native staking smart contracts across multiple chains including Terra, Fantom, Polygon, Solana, among others, and building an economic ecosystem to grow and develop solutions like YFI-style farming with rewards, launchpads, gaming with rewards, liquid staking solutions, and more.

In the long term, Stader is focused on unlocking the platform approach and nurturing third parties to develop several staking-related applications on top of Stader infrastructure.

Rewards by Threat Level

Rewards are distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability based on the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification System V2.1. 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 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.

Rewards for critical smart contract 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 reward of USD 100 000 for Critical smart contract bug reports.

Previous issues highlighted in the following audit reports are considered out of scope of this program:

Payouts are handled by the Stader team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in USDC or ETH, at the discretion of the team.

Assets in scope

For proxy contracts, only the current implementation and any further updates to the implementation contracts are considered in scope.

All smart contracts of Stader can be found at https://github.com/stader-labs/stader-liquid-token/tree/main/contracts. However, only those in the Assets in Scope table are considered as in-scope of the bug bounty program.

If any Critical or High severity impact can be caused to any other asset managed by Stader 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.
