Welcome To Barter Trade

Bug Bounty Program

The Barter Trade Bug Bounty Program will benefit only those security researchers who reliably pursue the disclosure guidelines. They should also not share the information of the vulnerability with the public. Please note that it may take us a few days to review and respond after the receipt of your report.

Ensuring security is of utmost importance to us. We appreciate and reward the responsible notification of vulnerabilities found in Barter Trade.


There are different types of rewards given depending on the technical severity of bug reported during the beta testing phase.

*Major Critical Moderate Low
Rewards for this we suggest to do $500 - $1000 in USD and the rest in BRT tokens. Rewards for this we suggest to do $50 - $100 in USD and the rest in BRT tokens. Rewards for this we suggest to do $5 - $25 and the rest in BRT tokens
  • Bugs in system architecture, 
  • Vulnerabilities in the back door
    (e.g. possibility of DDOS)
  • Server backdoor vulnerabilities 
  • Errors in the code
  • Trading overloading issue
  • Orders calculation errors
  • Order execution time calculation
  • Errors in order types
  • Sign up and sign in problems
  • UI errors and bugs
  • 2FA captcha error

In general, any bug that has the possibility to threaten a data breach or financial loss is considered in highest severity. All Barter Trade Exchange services (Exchange & API) are normally eligible for the Bug Bounty Program. In certain cases, we also entertain defense in depth reports or other best practices for the reward at our own discretion.

Barter Trade will issue rewards within 4 - 6 weeks of receiving the bug report. Please include your ERC-20 address to receive rewards. An equivalent ETH or BRT will be sent to your ERC-20 address.
