Jim Bursch, Director of the DASH Bug Bounty Program, served as a virtual sheriff in the wild, wild west that is cryptocurrency with his “Bug bounty” program developed for DASH. The program offers monetary incentives for hackers to identify points of weakness in the security of DASH’s digital currency. This allows for improvements to be made faster, without lack of access to the right individuals. A problem shared is a problem halved. Or broken down into minute fractions with potentially thousands of people on the case.
@UdjinM6 PR#2075 fixes this issue? Or is there something else?$5,000 was paid to a researcher and Dash community member who discovered a method of tracing Private Send transactions through limited mixing sessions. This was an edge case that was only rarely possible under specific circumstance. Nonetheless we wanted to reward the researcher for putting the time and effort into analyzing private send transactions and discovering a vulnerability, however rare.
The Bug Bounty was supposed to end August 2019.
Is this project still alive?
Is there any report explaining how these 250 Dash were spend?
The Bug Bounty payment address was emptied 2018-04-03.
I also cannot find any report about it in DashWatch
I'm Bugcrowd's Director of Account Management and Customer Success. We've been trying to get in touch with Jim for the last couple of months to discuss continuing the program and figured this might be the best place now. @GrandMasterDash please feel free to drop me a note: jason (at) bugcrowd (dot) com.
