Program Overview

The expansion pack for DAOs, Zodiac is a collection of tools built according to an open standard.

The Zodiac open standard enables DAOs to act more like constellations, connecting protocols, platforms, and chains, no longer confined to monolithic designs.

For more information about Zodiac, please visit https://github.com/gnosis/zodiac.

For additional documentation on Zodiac, please refer to the links below:

This bug bounty program is focused on their smart contracts and is focused on preventing:

  • Any governance voting result manipulation
  • Theft of user or DAO funds
  • Permanent freezing of user or DAO funds
  • Causing DAO to execute arbitrary code

Rewards by Threat Level

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

Rewards for critical smart contract 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 reward of USD 100 000 for Critical smart contract bug reports.

Gnosis requires KYC to be done for all bug bounty hunters submitting a report and wanting a reward. The information needed is an invoice including:

  • Full Name or Business Name
  • Personal or Business Address
  • Invoice number
  • Invoiced amount and currency

Payouts are handled by the Gnosis team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in ETH, DAI or GNO at the discretion of the team. Payouts may be done on either Mainnet or the Gnosis chain.
