An award-winning hacker with 20 years of experience in cybersecurity. In 2018, Nerdwell decided to give bug bounty programs a try. He had been working in cybersecurity for over a decade, and he had watched the bug bounty industry emerge. In just five short years, he has received multiple awards from Bugcrowd, including MVP and Level 4 P1 Warrior recognition.
OrwaGodfather started hacking in 2020 without a security background or previous experience. He started by watching videos online and looking for leaks to quickly learn how to hunt. He got six bounties in his first month and was off to the races! Since then, Orwa has been awarded the MVP, P1 Warrior, and Top Bug Hunter: LevelUpX Champion Buggy Award.
