Mina Bug Bounty Program

Mina has launched its bug bounty program to uncover security vulnerabilities in preparation for mainnet launch.

We are excited to share the launch of the Mina bug bounty program to uncover security vulnerabilities in the network, in partnership with HackerOne, the number one hacker-powered pentest and bug bounty platform. This is a crucial component of Testworld, Mina’s adversarial testnet phase, in preparation for mainnet launch next year.

1% of the total supply in token rewards as well as cash have been dedicated to help secure the network, across both the Testworld Adversarial Testnet and bug bounty programs. Bug submissions that have been accepted will be rewarded based on a vulnerability tier system, ranging from Low to Critical. For instance, submissions deemed to be a Critical vulnerability are eligible for a $5000 USD cash reward. There is a pre-identified list of known vulnerabilities that are currently being addressed which are not eligible for bug bounty submissions.

For more information on the program and to submit your bugs for consideration, visit our page on HackerOne.

About Mina Protocol

Mina Protocol is being incubated by O(1) Labs, the leader in zk-SNARKs and verifiable computation. Mina Protocol, the world’s lightest blockchain, provides a foundation for the decentralized digital economy (Web 3.0), by affording all participants fully P2P, permissionless access to the chain, from any device. By utilizing recursive zk-SNARKs, the Mina blockchain always stays the same size — about 20 kilobytes (the size of a few tweets). Recursive zk-SNARKs allow nodes to rapidly share and update proof of the correct blockchain state across the network. This breakthrough application of zk-SNARKs solves the issues of scalability and high barrier to entry for nodes that have plagued legacy blockchains to-date. By making it easier for nodes to participate, Mina improves decentralization and therefore security of the network. The Mina blockchain can be easily accessed from any device, including phones and browsers, and can be seamlessly integrated into new decentralized applications (dapps).
