Whitehat Awards

Introduction

The Immunefi Whitehat Awards program was launched in November of 2023 to recognize the impressive achievements of security researchers in the Immunefi web3 security community.

As skilled security researchers progress through our tiered system by reaching specific milestones, they receive exclusive perks, serving as both a digital and physical reminder of their accomplishments.

We will continually be adding new tiers and perks to this list. We also reserve the right to change any tiers, perks, requirements, and category names on this list.

Why Whitehat Awards Matter

Immunefi and its community of security researchers have played a pivotal role in safeguarding the digital landscape of web3 since 2020. In the process of protecting over 310 projects and over $60B in digital assets, researchers on our platform have collectively earned over $95M for vulnerabilities they discovered and responsibly reported. Based on the most conservative estimates, these whitehats have saved over $25B in assets through their work on Immunefi.

It's evident that the $1.21 trillion global market of at-risk digital assets heavily relies on the continued dedication and vigilance of skilled security researchers. Their efforts not only protect financial assets but also preserve the trust and confidence of individuals and institutions alike, ensuring the continued growth and adoption of the web3 ecosystem.

The Dual Track Perks System

Whitehats can earn perks from both tracks at the same time:

  • Researcher - as determined by # of paid reports
  • Bounty Hunter - as determined by total earnings

There's no limit on how many you can earn. Try to collect them all! However, those who already qualify for a tier can only access that tier with a new paid high or critical vulnerability.

Tier 1: Adept Researcher — 5 paid reports

I already qualify for one or more of the tiers. Will I automatically get the perk(s)?

You will be sent the awards automatically if you qualify through a new paid report. (i.e. your previous earnings total or report # does not qualify, but your new report qualifies you).

However, if you have already qualified and want to retroactively gain a perk for any tier, you will need to find an additional high or critical vulnerability valued at $25k or greater to receive it.

If you have any doubts about whether you qualify or can be eligible to receive a perk, please contact Oddly Specivik or ask via our Discord.
