Solana: Raydium and the crypto-exchange’s bug bounty program proposal

The Solana-based DEX, Raydium, has proposed the bug bounty program with a fund of 10 million RAY tokens (about $2.3 million).

The goal is to get more people involved in the Raydium community but also to eliminate bugs affecting the protocol’s core smart contracts.

And indeed, it appears that in a post on the project’s Discord channel, such smart contracts were identified with Raydium’s Concentrated Liquidity Market Maker. In essence, these pieces of code govern how the Raydium DEX manages crypto trading on the Solana blockchain.

The bug bounty program would reward white hat hackers up to $505,000 or up to $5,000 in RAY tokens, depending on the severity of the bug detected. The proposal would be managed by the bug bounty platform Immunefi.
