Decred launched a Bug Bounty Program, which will offer DCR payments of up to US$ 25,000.
The program is one of the proposals approved through Politeia, Decred’s governance system that allows the community to create proposals, discuss, collaborate and finance new projects and initiatives. According to Degeri, proponent of the initiative, the Decred Bug Bounty program aims to use collective intelligence to find and correct security vulnerabilities.
The program covers the vulnerabilities found in some Decred projects in scope. The Participants should report the error following a standard format, through the email dedicated to the project. The website dedicated to Decred Bug Bounty details the rules and conditions of participation to opt for the rewards.
Just to understand the process, Decred launched Politeia in Oct, 2018. Politeia gives holders of the cryptocurrency a way to exercise control over every aspect of the project, meaning it puts the Decred treasury in their hands. That treasury currently holds DCR ˜600,000, valued at roughly US$ 10,5 million.
