Theft incidents are a critical problem for businesses in the DeFi world. This year alone, at least 23 different attacks have been carried out, which led to the fact that hackers of the network stole more than $ 1.7 billion.

Immunefi, which helps ensure the security of DeFi projects, provides services to ethical hackers, also known as whitehats, reward programs through which security researchers can view code, identify vulnerabilities, and earn money.

“DEFI is unique in that the vulnerabilities in the code represent the possibility that users will lose their money immediately,” said Mitchell Amador, founder and CEO of Immunefi.

He added that bug bounty programs “have proven to be one of the most effective ways to deal with critical security breaches.”

Last week, Polygon, Ethereum’s scalability solution, issued a record $2 million reward paid through Immunefi, a white-hatted hacker, which exposed a security vulnerability that threatened about $850 million.
