Thorstarter is the first decentralized community-driven Venture DAO. By combining a unique launchpad model with liquidity grants, they fund and launch the most promising projects across THORfi and DeFi.
Thorstarter will act as an IDO platform for new projects, providing them with deep liquidity right from the start. Alternatively, Thorstarter will enable existing projects to reach investors and participants across multiple blockchains by creating a liquidity pool for their token paired with XRUNE.
Thorstarter complements the Thorchain ecosystem, and benefits from its liquidity and capabilities, while also extending its utility.

This bug bounty program is focused on their smart contracts and app and is focused on preventing:
- Thefts and freezing of principal of any amount
- Thefts and freezing of unclaimed yield of any amount
- Theft of governance funds
- Governance activity disruption
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 web/app bug reports must come with a PoC in order to be considered for a reward. A PoC is also required for Critical smart contract bug reports in order to be considered for a reward.
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 50 000 for Critical bug reports.
Payouts are handled by the Thorstarter team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in USDC, XRUNE or a combination of both, up to the discretion of the team.
