Program Overview

Talent Protocol is the web3 professional network for high-potential talent.

  • Where top talent can create a web3-native professional profile built for the future of work: composable, more reliable, and fully owned by the user

  • Easily launch a talent token, let people invest in your career, and start building your personal community without having to be an expert in crypto

  • A carbon-negative, open-source and decentralized social network that values quality of connections more than quantity of followers.

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 Critical/High severity 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. Critical/High severity bug reports must also come with a suggestion for a fix to be considered for a reward.

Prior to the launch of the TAL token, on top of the rewards stated above, submitters of valid Critical/High severity bug reports will also be rewarded with a bonus amount of TAL once the TAL token launches.

Payouts are handled by the Talent Protocol team directly and are denominated in USD. Prior to the launch of the TAL token (estimated July 2022), payouts will be done in USDC or USDT, at the discretion of the team. However, after the TAL token is launched, payouts will be done in TAL.

Assets in scope

All smart contracts of Talent Protocol can be found at https://github.com/talentprotocol. However, only those in the Assets in Scope table are considered as in-scope of the bug bounty program.

Talent Protocol smart contracts are currently running on a stable coin phase. Users can only stake talent tokens by allocating stable coins. It’s still not possible to use TAL to stake talent tokens.

Bugs on functions that will only be used on the token phase of the protocol will not be considered.

Stable phase modifier: https://github.dev/talentprotocol/contracts/blob/67be03c3763e19fbb144b6afa61935956daca473/contracts/staking/StableThenToken.sol#L45-L46
