Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) was created to restore the original Satoshi protocol, keep it stable, and enable it to massively scale. Unlike other Bitcoin projects, only Bitcoin SV has the plan for a stable protocol and plan for massive on-chain scaling to become the world’s new money and the global public blockchain for enterprise.

Rewards by Threat Level

Blockchain/DLT
Critical
USD $50,000
High
USD $25,000
Medium
USD $5,000
Low
USD $1,000

Rewards are distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability with the following categorization:

Critical - Catastrophic impact on the network as a whole; network availability compromised; loss of funds High - Impacts individual nodes; individual node crashes; potential for a loss of funds Medium - Not easily exploitable; medium impact; no loss of funds Low - Not easily exploitable; low impact

The level of exploitability is determined by the Bitcoin Association for BSV.

A proof of concept is not required but is recommended to allow faster processing of the bug report. This proof of concept should be code.

Payouts are handled by the Bitcoin Association for BSV directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in BSV.

Program Overview

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) was created to restore the original Satoshi protocol, keep it stable, and enable it to massively scale. Unlike other Bitcoin projects, only Bitcoin SV has the plan for a stable protocol and plan for massive on-chain scaling to become the world’s new money and the global public blockchain for enterprise.

The bug bounty program is focused around the code base for BSV and spans end-to-end, ranging from the soundness of protocols (blockchain consensus model, the wire and p2p protocols, proof of work, etc.), protocol implementation, and compliance to network security and consensus integrity.

KYC required

The submission of KYC information is a requirement for payout processing.

Prohibited Activities

Default prohibited activities
  • Any testing on mainnet or public testnet deployed code; all testing should be done on local-forks of either public testnet or mainnet
  • Any testing with pricing oracles or third-party smart contracts
  • Attempting phishing or other social engineering attacks against our employees and/or customers
  • Any testing with third-party systems and applications (e.g. browser extensions) as well as websites (e.g. SSO providers, advertising networks)
  • Any denial of service attacks that are executed against project assets
  • Automated testing of services that generates significant amounts of traffic
  • Public disclosure of an unpatched vulnerability in an embargoed bounty
  • Any other actions prohibited by the Immunefi Rules

Feasibility Limitations

The project may be receiving reports that are valid (the bug and attack vector are real) and cite assets and impacts that are in scope, but there may be obstacles or barriers to executing the attack in the real world. In other words, there is a question about how feasible the attack really is. Conversely, there may also be mitigation measures that projects can take to prevent the impact of the bug, which are not feasible or would require unconventional action and hence, should not be used as reasons for downgrading a bug's severity. Therefore, Immunefi has developed a set of feasibility limitation standards which by default states what security researchers, as well as projects, can or cannot cite when reviewing a bug report.
