Mantle v2 Sepolia Testnet Public Contest Powered by Secure3

Calling out to all developers and security auditors — Mantle Network has teamed up with Secure3 for the Mantle Network v2 Sepolia Testnet Public Contest, with 170,000 USDC in rewards for auditors who stress test Mantle v2 Sepolia Testnet ahead of the Mantle Network v2 launch.

Public Contest Period: March 4, 2024, 12AM (midnight) UTC - March 21, 2024, 11:59PM UTC

What is the Public Contest?

We're inviting the developer community to audit Mantle v2 Sepolia Testnet's latest version, updated after multiple private audit contests with Secure3 prior to the launch of the Public Contest.

Together with Secure3, Mantle Network aims to build a transparent and iterative severity standard that facilitates collective improvement through wider quality feedback from the community in the Public Contest.

We welcome more auditors to contribute to our standard. Auditors will be rewarded based on the severity and uniqueness of issues found, along with the provision of constructive suggestions and actionable fixes.

How do auditors participate?

Any participant can sign up and send in their submissions via Secure3's Mantle Public Contest page. You will need to refer to Mantle Network v2's technical documentation here, and also the report from the previous private contest rounds (available when the contest begins).
