Attention, hackers! Are you ready to put your skills to the test and leave your mark on the future of blockchain technology? Look no further than our partnership with Aleo, the groundbreaking developer platform for building private blockchain applications using zero-knowledge proofs. In an exciting partnership that puts security at the forefront, Aleo is working with Bugcrowd, the industry leader in ethical hacking, to launch their first bug bounty program. This is your chance to dive into the world of blockchain and help Aleo shape a more secure ecosystem. So, gear up and let the hacking begin!

The Bug Bounty Program Unveiled 

We are thrilled to reveal Aleo’s fully live Bug Bounty Program, hosted on the Bugcrowd platform. This program invites talented and passionate hackers from around the globe to put Aleo’s security defenses to the ultimate test. 

To kickstart the Bug Bounty Program, Aleo has allocated an initial reward pool of $500,000 USD. This substantial amount underscores Aleo’s commitment to recognizing and rewarding the valuable contributions made by hackers (otherwise known as security researchers or white hat hackers). This substantial amount is divided into two tiers, ensuring that efforts of varying magnitudes are duly rewarded. Tier P1 offers rewards ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 for the discovery of critical vulnerabilities, while Tier P2 grants rewards ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 for significant findings. 

Take on the challenge

Are you up for the challenge of securing the Aleo network? Join our Bug Bounty Program, showcase your skills, and help us enhance the privacy and security of Aleo. By actively participating, you become an integral part of the Aleo community, working towards a common goal of building a robust and resilient blockchain ecosystem.

Some key points to keep in mind as you hunt:

  • The program scope currently only focuses on Aleo’s snarkOS and snarkVM repositories.
  • Bounties will be paid based on severity of the bug using the Bugcrowd VRT scoring system.
  • Aleo must remain compliant with OFAC programs, and thus cannot pay out bounties to residents in OFAC-sanctioned countries.
