Whitehat Awards


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

Finding bugs, especially high-value ones, is no simple task. It takes a great deal of energy, commitment, and focus. As skilled researchers progress through our tiered system by reaching specific earnings 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.

Why Whitehat Awards Matter

Immunefi and its community of independent 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 $85M for vulnerabilities they discovered and responsibly reported via Immunefi.

While it's often hard to quantify achievements, 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 Tiered Perks System

Our tiered perks system is thoughtfully structured to encourage security researchers of all levels to go above and beyond. From the Initiate Tier to the prestigious Grandmaster Tier, each level represents a significant milestone in their whitehat journey.

Initiate Tier - $50,000 in Earnings

  • Exclusive Immunefi Swag Pack


The Initiate Tier is your first step toward recognition and perks. When you earn $50,000 through your bug bounty efforts, you'll receive an exclusive Immunefi swag pack, showcasing your commitment to cybersecurity.

Elite Tier - $100,000 in Earnings

  • Exclusive Immunefi Luxury Hoodie


The Elite Tier is where your journey truly takes off. With earnings exceeding $100,000, you'll receive a luxury Immunefi hoodie made of 100% cotton with a glowing logo. As a “certified” Elite whitehat, you're recognized as one of the best in the field.

Master Tier - $1,000,000 in Earnings


Grandmaster Tier - $10,000,000 in Earnings


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

Perks on this list are not retroactive to security researchers who have already met any given tier prior to November 2nd, 2023. However, if you find that you meet the requirements for one of the tiers, all you need to do is find an additional high or critical vulnerability valued at >$25k via Immunefi, and you will then become eligible to receive the perks for your appropriate tier(s).

The Immunefi Whitehat Awards program is not just about accolades and physical perks; it's about celebrating the spirit of cybersecurity and the dedication of our whitehat community.
