Unlike EOS, where the CTO offered a bounty of $10,000 for any critical bug that can ruin the launch of the mainnet on June 2, the founder of TRON went further and offered several rewards for different types of bugs. The prizes start at $100 and finish at a worthy sum of $100,000.

Some errors could be small, easy to solve and can be spotted in a code that does not directly impact the whole system. However, if you spot some huge bug that will allow hackers to leak in and steal a big amount of TRX tokens– this is well worth $100,000 to pay for.

The deadline for finding any flaws in the protocol is before June 25th, when the Genesis block is to be launched.

CEO’s personal invitation

Justin Sun has personally invited all interested parties to participate in the ‘bug hunt’ via Twitter.


This is an excellent chance for any developer to prove that their professional skills are worth $100,000. Besides, it will just take a few days of work sitting comfortably at home in front of your PC or laptop.


Similar troubles in the past

Apart from the recent EOS case, Justin Sun, apparently, kept in mind the trouble Ethereum faced and the vulnerabilities in its smart contracts, which were discovered last year and got around 600,000 ETH frozen of users’ funds in the Parity Wallet platform.

TRON’s new mainnet is available for anybody to download on GitHub, so feel free to test your programming skills and make some good money.
