Sui is a decentralized layer 1 blockchain that offers great transaction speed at a low cost. This permissionless blockchain is designed to support a wide range of applications.

Its unique architecture not only supports a broad spectrum of applications but also sets a new standard in transaction finality, reduced latency, and accelerated processing times. To further fortify its infrastructure against the ever-present threats in the digital realm, Sui made a strategic decision to transition its bug bounty program to Hackenproof.

Opportunities to Enhance Sui’s Bug Bounty Program 

Sui’s objective in transitioning its Bug Bounty program to Hackenproof was to enhance the efficacy of vulnerability detection and response.

  1. Integration Complexity: The need for seamless integration with diverse tools and systems to ensure operational usability and security.
  2. Usability Concerns: A platform that balances advanced functionality with ease of use encourages broader adoption and fosters a supportive community.
  3. Community Engagement: Access to a vast and experienced community of ethical hackers is crucial for identifying and addressing vulnerabilities effectively.
