The Augur prediction market paid $ 2,850 for three bugs. One of them received the “medium risk” mark and cost the project $ 2,500. The Crypto.com wallet also received three notifications about vulnerabilities, paying $ 2,250 for their detection.
From the funds of the anonymous altcoin Monero, the hackers were paid twice. Korean blockchain project ICON paid $ 1,000 for one vulnerability.
