Ethical hacker finds 12 dangerous bugs in EOS code, earns $120.000 in a week

Ethical hacker Guido Vranken has made $120.000 in a week finding bugs in the EOS code. Hackers that would spot potentially dangerous bugs in the code were given $10.000 per flaw.

In one day, the Dutch hacker already found eight dangerous bugs, earning him $80.000. According to Vranken himself his final tally was $120.000, but 'he lost count'. The whole process took him about a week.

The EOS mainnet was released last Saturday and the new blockchain is expected to go live in the next couple of days.

In the EOS community on Reddit it was suggested that Block.one, the company behind EOS, should hire Vranken. Vranken replied himself stating that they already did. Card
