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. In addition, all bug reports must also come with a suggestion for a fix in order to be considered for a reward.

Known issues highlighted in their previous audits here are considered out of scope of this program:

Payouts are handled by the StakeWise team directly and are denominated in USD. Payouts are done in SWISE or USDC, at the discretion of the team.

Program Overview

StakeWise is a protocol for liquid staking on Ethereum and Gnosis Chain. By staking their assets through StakeWise, users receive staked ETH and staked GNO tokens that represent their deposit and earnings, and can be swapped back into ETH and GNO via liquidity pools or deposited into DeFi protocols for extra yield. The protocol is run by the StakeWise DAO, which decides on the deployment of StakeWise DAO Treasury, the distribution of ETH and GNO across node operators, and choice of various smart contract parameters.

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.
