Our Dream


    Transparent & Reliable Platform

    Our aim is to setup a secure ecosystem where dedicated freelance security researchers from all around the world willingly gather their talent and energy to outsmart and outperform the malicious cyber attacks.


    Collective Brainpower

    The collective talent and intelligence of ethical hackers backed up by the technology of AI&ML is the only way we see the cyberworld becoming a trusted and secure-enough place for both individuals and organizations.


    Continuous Security

    Along with new technologies, new threats and vulnerabilities emerge. We believe that being effective against ever-changing cyber threats is only possible with a wide range of risk detection methods.


    Why Should You Prefer Ecosystem?

    Protecting digital assets is a common concern, and a safer world is possible only through cooperation.
    That's why at Bugbounter, we have established an ecosystem of freelance researchers committed to discovering cyber security vulnerabilities so that organizations can always be prepared against cyber threats. Our platform brings together a network of ethical hackers and security researchers with organizations, enabling security teams to test their risks for any asset they wish.

    Transparent Process

    The entire award process on the Bugbounter platform runs on blockchain. We ensure that the system operates in a transparent and reliable manner.


    Crowdsourced Security

    We provide numerous testing opportunities with an ecosystem of hundreds of creative and talented cybersecurity researchers. Thus, you discover vulnerabilities that current penetration testing methods would hardly uncover.


    Global Support

    The Bugbounter platform includes hundreds of global researchers that have passed through various background checks, vetting processes and monitoring in its ecosystem. Due to the diverse skill set of researchers, vulnerabilities are found much faster - often within the same day.



    Bugbounter rewards only the verified vulnerabilities (verified by its community of experts). This way, you receive a high quality service with a reasonable budget and you only pay for the reports that contribute to your asset security.
