ChainEX Bounty Program: What it is & how it works

ChainEX’s Bounty Program is our way to reward security researchers for finding serious security vulnerabilities on our exchange, ChainEX.

What's a bounty program?

A bounty program, also referred to as a bug bounty is a program that provides financial compensation to users like yourself who find security flaws or vulnerabilities in an organization's app, website, or other digital platform. In this case, the ChainEX mobile app and website.

ChainEX is a cryptocurrency exchange and as such, security and protection of our system and platform is of the utmost importance to us. This bug bounty has been put in place in order to encourage the responsible disclosure of any bug or vulnerability contained within the ChainEX code or protocols and if any are found to reward those who make such disclosures.

Digital bugs are inevitable given the numerous technical and business challenges that organizations face today. As a result, we have turned to a bug bounty initiative to improve the quality of our platform for you and mitigate the damage bugs and security flaws can cause. In short; you help us, we help you.

Our responsible disclosure policy promotes the discovery and reporting of security vulnerabilities. If you're a security researcher and you think you've found a vulnerability within ChainEX, please follow these steps:

Firstly, you can let us know via our support portal by clicking here. Do not post the issue on GitHub or anywhere else until the issue has been resolved.

Secondly, give us reasonable time to respond to your listing and course of action. More detail on the process can he found here:

Why should you take part?

Well, for starters, you get paid. You will also be helping us secure the exchange and identify bugs that will not only protect you as a trader on ChainEX, but others too. Nothing beats that feeling of knowing you played a huge and influential role in the success of something. The following table outlines the rewards you could earn for specific classes of vulnerabilities for in-scope properties.


What happens next?

Once you have submitted the vulnerability, it will pass through a review process and should you have identified a vulnerability that fits the criteria, your bounty will be confirmed and awarded within 10 days of their assessment by the ChainEX team.
