During my regular early morning googling session I came across a very interesting fact about the Ripple project. There is a bug bounty that is currently being offered by the Ripple (XRP) team to anyone who can find any security relevant bugs in their software offerings (https://github.com/ripple).
Perhaps it is time some of us stopped trading and dug deep down into finding bugs in software and getting those bounties to ‘fatten’ our digital wallets as the market tries to recover from its December highs. The Ripple (XRP) team goes ahead to explain what qualifies as a valid bug.
They say the bug must be in the Ripple software or infrastructure. It has to be relevant in terms of posing a risk to user funds, privacy or operation of the network.
It has to be unique, new and fixable. The team also asks you not to use the bug to attack the network for they will not pay you any bounty.
This last condition for awarding the bounty is hilarious yet very necessary. Perhaps with such a great emphasis on fund and user security by the team shall we see the much anticipated $10 XRP price prediction by the end of the year. Read more from ethereumworldnews.com…
