On July 10, a $1 million bug bounty program for the ‘Firedancer’ Solana client will launch

  • Developers who find bugs in the initial release of Firedancer, an independent Solana validator client developed by Jump Crypto, will soon have the opportunity to win $1 million.
  • Starting on July 10, Firedancer v0.1, also known as “Frankendancer,” will have a six-week bug bounty program.

The much sought and eagerly awaited “Firedancer” independent validator client, developed by Jump Crypto for the Solana blockchain, is about to launch its first bug bounty program.

The pseudonymous developer Cantelope Peel revealed the scheme, which will launch on July 10 and last for six weeks. A maximum of $1 million will be awarded by the Immunefi-powered initiative to developers who discover serious flaws in Firedancer v0.1, also known as Frankendancer, the initial client version. 

According to Cantelope Peel, who posted on X that millions of execution slots have been tested and match the Solana protocol, work on Firedancer seems to be moving along nicely.

Because any issues with the current wave of clients could pose serious blockchain worries, the Firedancer client is meant to bolster Solana’s resilience. Furthermore, Jump is known for its high-frequency trading, and Firedancer’s C/C++ implementation makes it ideal for this kind of trading.

Jump Crypto president Kanav Kariya said that, considering Solana’s success, our involvement in the ecosystem over a few years, and the very specific technical challenges they wanted to solve in order to optimize their network and runtime, it felt like a really great opportunity for us to come in and contribute.
