Crypto News- Bug Hunters Could Pocket $1 Million Bounty for Identifying Issues with Solana’s Firedancer Validator Client

Crypto News- Firedancer, built by Jump Crypto, is a high-performance validator client written in C++ and has been in development since 2022. It’s designed to boost Solana’s network throughput, resilience, and efficiency.

Jump Crypto is offering these substantial rewards through a bug bounty program on Immunefi, a platform for bug bounties and security services. The program kicks off with a 42-day competitive audit starting on July 10 and running through August 21.

According to Immunefi, the Firedancer v0.1 team will respond to all bug reports within 24 hours on weekdays. If you have any technical questions, you can reach out to their team on Immunefi’s Discord channel.

Development Updates

According to pseudonymous developer @CantelopePeel, the team is currently working on and testing the first versions of the Solana consensus and fork choice algorithms. They’ve nicknamed the first version of the validator Frankendancer.

Millions of slots of execution have been tested and match the Solana protocol, said CantelopePeel.

High Hopes for Firedancer

Firedancer has been highly anticipated because of its potential to optimize Solana for onchain high-frequency trading. It’s designed to support a greater number of concurrent transactions and includes sharding support.
