For more information about YIN Finance, please visit https://yin.finance/. 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
  • Website goes down
  • Leak of user data
  • Deletion of user data
  • Access to sensitive pages without authorization

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. Critical, High and Medium severity smart contract bug reports must come with a PoC in order to be considered for a reward. All smart contract bug reports must come with a suggestion for a fix 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 20 000 for Critical bug reports.

Payouts are handled by the YIN Finance team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in USDT.
