, the leading bug bounty and security services platform for DeFi projects and decentralized networks, has opened its bug bounty program on Stacks. This means that a specific set of core smart contracts including PoX, BNS, and of course, the Stacks blockchain code itself are eligible for code review by Immunefi’s roster of security researchers or other developers who would like to participate in the bounty program.
Immunefi, which recently raised $5.5M
, has quickly proven itself as the go-to service for bounty programs in crypto, protecting more than $100B in assets. With clients like Polygon, MakerDAO, Synthetix, Chainlink, SushiSwap, PancakeSwap, and Compound under its belt, Immunefi’s bug bounty for Stacks will be the first campaign to fortify DeFi services for Bitcoin.
This program will provide an extra layer of protection alongside a growing number of developer resources including recently introduced smart contract audits from top audit agencies
. By incentivizing both audit agencies and individual security researchers to closely inspect financially sensitive code, we hope to reduce the risk of bugs and vulnerabilities for all builders leveraging the Stacks network to build applications secured by Bitcoin.
