Beowulf offers $10k in cash prizes to report bugs in its blockchain code

In a bid to spur development of its native blockchain, decentralized cloud network ​Beowulf​ has announced $10,000 in earnings for the first phase of its hackathon.

Security researchers and app developers can participate in Blockathon, an ongoing hackathon open to blockchain enthusiasts from around the world, to test Beowulf Blockchain for potential security vulnerabilities and submit their creations. Those who demonstrate their creativity and make a positive impression on the leaders of Beowulf will be eligible to win cash prizes.

The Beowulf Blockathon is divided into 2 phases – Bug Bounty and Application Building:

  • The first phase, Bug Bounty, kicked off on Thursday, August 01, and will run until August 7, 2019. Experienced hackers will be challenged to identify critical software vulnerabilities within Beowulf blockchain’s code. On August 15, the top 3 teams will be invited to Beowulf Blockchain’s office to conduct a presentation day and be rewarded for their efforts on the same day.
  • The second phase, Application Building, will involve participants creating native applications using an array of programming languages (Python, Java, Node JS, Go, Rust and PHP), that integrate with the Beowulf Blockchain API.

Beowulf, which is headquartered in Silicon Valley, recently launched its first service on its platform – QUICKOM, an application that enables users to generate custom QR codes to use for inbound communication. QUICKOM records every transaction on the blockchain, offering individuals and organizations improved privacy and connectivity.

Beowulf CEO Dr. William H. Nguyen expressed his hope that the forthcoming Blockathon will attract innovative ideas from up-and-coming developers.

“These events always include a submission that questions your assumptions in some way, or that involve a use case you couldn’t have envisaged. The Blockathon is a fantastic opportunity for emerging developers to get together, put their creativity to the test, and show the many ways in which blockchain technology can be harnessed,” he said.

Beowulf Blockathon is open to students, IT engineers, developers, designers who have a passion for blockchain technology. Those interested can now register for free with teams of up to five.
