❓ What is Witnet?

Witnet is a decentralized oracle network (DON) that connects smart contracts to the real, off-chain world. Broadly speaking, using a network of permissionless decentralized nodes around the world, it allows any piece of software to retrieve information published at any web address at any point in time, with complete and verifiable proof of the information's integrity, without blindly trusting any third party.   

🎁 Witnet Incentive Program

The Witnet community is making the move to Mainnet in October 2020! In order to make this transition a success, the Witnet Incentive Program has been launched, with 25 million WIT tokens and 30,000 $DAI up grabs for participants. To sign up, or to find out more details on the program, please visit β†’ https://testnet.witnet.io/join

As part of the Witnet Incentive Program, the Witnet Foundation has allocated up to 30,000 $DAI to hackers and bug-hunters, which we are now opening to the Gitcoin community. The Witnet community appreciates your assistance in exposing and fixing vulnerabilities that will ensure the Witnet Protocol is robust and secure. 


πŸ€‘ Rewards and Judging Process βš–️

⏰Submit before 7th October 2020 and your bug may be applicable for a reward multiplier, as specified below.

Generally speaking, any submission that poses a significant vulnerability, either to the soundness of protocol and protocol/implementation compliance to network security, to classical client security as well as security of cryptographic primitives, could be eligible for a reward.
