The TRON Foundation, an organization dedicated to building the infrastructure in support of a truly decentralized internet, has increased the rewards for their bug bounty program to a maximum of $10 million USD. The program’s goal is to eliminate MainNet vulnerabilities prior to the public blockchain launch, currently scheduled for June 25.

“We take the security of our platform very seriously,” said Justin Sun, founder of the TRON Foundation. “We are looking for developers who specialize in global network security to help make TRON MainNet one of the most secure public blockchains in the industry and provide a stable infrastructure for future DApps to be deployed on the MainNet.”

After the launch of TRON’s MainNet testing phase May 31, the reward cap of the bug bounty program increased from $100,000 to $10,000,000.

Developers wishing to participate should review the scope of TRON’s bug bounty, including how to submit potential bugs, available on TRON’s Github repository at

The TRON Foundation will evaluate submissions based on criteria such as level of bug importance and how hidden it is, and distribute rewards based on ranking. Rewards range from $1,000 to $10,000,000 based on the severity of the issue.
