Bagels Finance
Bagels Finance Bug Bounty Program

Program Overview

Bagels Finance is a Decentralized Finance (DeFi) platform that provides products for yield farming and lending aggregation on the BSC, Polygon and Ethereum blockchains. The bug bounty program is focused on the main goal of preventing the loss of user funds due to smart contract vulnerabilities, and faults in our code that affect usability or security. Security is our most important concern. Although we have completed professional smart contract code audits and security verifications, we recognize the importance of our community in uncovering vulnerabilities and maintaining the safety of the Bagels ecosystem. Bagels recognizes the hard work of independent developers and rewards community participants who audit our contracts and disclose any vulnerabilities. Below we have set out the rules and rewards of the program.
