Flashstake Testnet Announcement

How to participate

Testing of the Flashstaking Protocol will be done using the web3 frontend and we will drop the link just before the testnet opens!

For a basic introduction to the protocol and its functionalities please see the documentation here.

There are two ways to participate — by reaching a Top 25 Leaderboard ranking or by discovering and reporting a bug.

Leaderboard — $2,500 USDC and 7,500 Flash per round

By performing the following tasks, you will earn points. The more you do, the more you earn!

Perform tasks and earn points to rise up the leaderboard!

Once the testnet has launched, you can check the leaderboard rankings here. This will not be available until the testnet goes live.

Submit Bugs

Please submit any front-end-related bugs you discover using the marker.io tool directly on the right side of the dapp screen. Please report all other bugs, potential exploits or general smart contract logic inconsistencies using this typeform.

Participants have until Wednesday, June 29th 5 PM UTC to submit bugs.


Rewards will be allocated as follows:

Rewards for Submission of Bugs

All bugs submitted will receive an independent review from the Blockzero Labs Core and be given a ‘Severity Score’. Based on the Severity Score and the total number of bugs found, exact rewards will be determined (see disclaimer section below).

Smart contract bugs are more favorably rewarded than frontend issues. The more severe a bug, the higher the severity score and the higher the payout. However, don’t be discouraged to report anything you find. Even previously-undiscovered typos will be eligible for a reward, so have a close look.

Registration and Testnet Tokens

Participants have until Wednesday, June 29th, at 5 PM UTC to submit bugs for wave 1 of the competition. Subsequent waves will be announced separately.

Bugs are rewarded on a first-come-first-served basis. This means that if two people submit the same bug, the person who submitted the Typeform first will be the only person eligible for compensation.

Not all bugs will be treated the same or given the same compensation.

Bugs discovered that would result in a loss of funds on the protocol will be judged with the highest Severity Scores. In case multiple valid submissions are made the Blockzero Labs Core Citizens decide how to split the rewards.

If you have any questions about this process or would like to discuss the security of the protocol please join us on Discord in the #flashstake channel.
