Program Overview

Uniwhale is an oracle-based decentralized on-chain perpetual trading exchange where

  • You can trade, with up to 200x leverage, BTC, ETH, and many mainstream crypto assets, directly from your wallet.
  • You can provide liquidity with stablecoins like USDT, USDC, BUSD, and more, to earn real yield from market-making and leverage trading.

Based on objective price oracles and single-sided liquidity, Uniwhale aims to deliver the best trading experience for traders with zero credit risk and minimize impermanent loss for liquidity providers.

  • Oracle-based price execution means zero slippage.
  • Single-sided stablecoin liquidity means zero impermanent loss.
  • Decentralized on-chain trading experience means zero credit risk.

Responsible Publication

Uniwhale adheres to category 1. This Policy determines what information whitehats are allowed to make public from their submitted bug reports. For more information about the category selected, please refer to our Responsible Publication page.

For Whitehats: It is highly recommended that you review the details of this program in full. Although many Bug Bounty programs have standard terms and conditions, each also has their own unique details that are critical to your success.

Prior to submitting a report please review the Immunefi Bug Report Template and Best Practices.

Rewards by Threat Level

Please review how rewards are distributed based on the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification System V2.2. This is a simplified 5-level scale system with separate scales for Smart Contracts and Websites/Apps.

Rewards for critical smart contract bug reports will be further capped at 10% of direct funds at risk if the bug discovered is exploited. However, there is a minimum reward of USD 20 000.

Rewards for high smart contract bug reports will be further capped at 10% of direct funds at risk if the bug discovered is exploited. However, there is a minimum reward of USD 4 000.

Payouts and Payout Requirements:

Payouts are handled by the Uniwhale team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in UNW. Uniwhale commits to honoring payouts according to the terms set out in this program at the time of report submission, and to treat this program as the agreement and source of truth concerning bug reports and responsible disclosures.

For the purposes of determining report validity, this is a Primacy of Impact program.

Learn more about report validity best practices here: Best Practice - Primacy of Impact vs Primacy of Rules.

KYC Requirements:

Uniwhale does have a Know Your Customer (KYC) requirement for bug bounty payouts.

KYC Info Required:

  • Identify Proof (Passport, / Driving License / National ID)

KYC information is only required on confirmation of the validity of a bug report.

Audit Discoveries and Known Issues:

Bug reports covering previously-discovered bugs are not eligible for any reward through the bug bounty program. If a bug report covers a known issue, it may be rejected together with proof of the issue being known before escalation of the bug report via Immunefi.

Below are a list of audits completed for Uniwhale. All bugs reported in these audits are considered as out-of-scope for the bug bounty program.

Assets in scope

Impacts only apply to assets in active use by the project like contracts on mainnet or web/app assets used in production. Any impact that applies to assets not in active use, like test or mock files, are out-of-scope of the bug bounty program unless explicitly mentioned as in-scope.

Smart Contracts

Whitehats are highly encouraged to review any potential subdomains and what specific port(s) are in scope. Even though the domain may be the same, different ports may point to different assets.

Dev Environment and Documentation:

Uniwhale has included dev documentation and/or instructions to help in reviewing code and exploring for bugs:

Impacts to other assets:

Hackers are encouraged to submit issues outside of the outlined Impacts and Assets in Scope.

If whitehats can demonstrate a critical impact on code in production for an asset not in scope, Uniwhale encourages you to submit your bug report using the “primacy of impact exception” asset.
