NavCoin Bounties

NavCoin is a community based project and there are multiple bounty programs running where you can earn NAV for contributing to NavCoin projects. Not all of the bounties require the skills of a computer programmer, so even if you're non-technical check it out, there might be some way for you to earn NAV.

Bounty Program Details

The NavCoin Core Developer bounty program was initiated by NavCoin Developer Alex V to encourage the decentralisation of NavCoin Core development.

There are two main ways to claim coins through the bounty program:

1. Solving GitHub Issues

The issues which can be worked to claim coins will be labelled with a special tag. Issues will be assigned to candidates on a first-come-first-served basis and the assignment should be handled on the GitHub issue. If you want to work on a bounty, make sure you comment on it and your claim has been acknowledged.


Bounties will be paid once the pull request is merged into master and the pull request must include the corresponding test units to be considered complete. The reward for the task will be based on the issue's label:


bounty-low
100 NAV
bounty-medium
500 NAV
bounty-high
1,000 NAV
bounty-xhigh
2,000 NAV

If you've noticed something that could be improved in NavCoin Core which isn't already on the issues list, you can also create an issue yourself and ask for it to be reviewed and assigned a bounty.

2. Finding Bugs

Finding bugs in NavCoin Core is another way to earn NAV. Finding bugs, especially low level ones, doesn't necessarily require any programming knowledge. If you download and install the latest version of NavCoin Core, test it on your system and find any problems then you could be eligible to claim a bounty.


Already reported/publicly known vulnerabilities, or critical vulnerabilities (level 5 or more) requiring physical access to the device or MITM techniques, won't be considered for the bounty. Payment will be done based on its severity:


1. Visual Glitches
100 NAV
2. Minor UX Issues
300 NAV
3. Major UX Issues
600 NAV
4. Local Client Crashes
1,000 NAV
5. DoS Attacks
2,500 NAV
6. Network Isolation Attacks
4,000 NAV
7. Consensus Vulnerabilities
5,000 NAV
8. Generation of Coins
10,000 NAV
9. Theft of Funds
15,000 NAV

If you've discovered a critical bug in NavCoin core, we would ask that you treat it with discretion and use our Responsible Disclosure proceedure to notify the other core developers and work with them to resolve the bug and claim your bounty.
