Program Overview

Tonic is a permissionless, fully on-chain, orderbook-based exchange platform built on NEAR. Their platform allows anyone to create markets for any asset on NEAR L1 or Aurora. Every component of Tonic is built with developers in mind, enabling the community to build a wide range of performant DeFi applications on NEAR.

For more information about Tonic, please visit https://tonic.foundation/.

Rewards by Threat Level

Rewards are distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability based on the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification System V2.2. 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.

Payouts are handled by the Tonic team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in USDC (ERC20), USN (ERC20) or USN (NEAR), at the discretion of the team.

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

If an impact can be caused to any other asset managed by Tonic 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.
