Announcing The Results Of The PrimeXBT $100,000 Bug Bounty Contest - IMG 1997

PrimeXBT regularly releases new features and improvements. Before we launch a new feature, especially one as important as the next evolution of the PrimeXBT trading platform, we often turn to the community to request assistance in testing the product and discovering –– and reporting –– critical bugs that can hinder the experience for others.

The PrimeXBT team puts tremendous effort into planning, preparing, and testing new tools before release. But we firmly believe that the best feedback comes from the traders who use these tools each day in global markets.

In anticipation of the most significant update to our trading platform since its inception, we launched a Bug Bounty Contest with a massive prize pool and gave traders access to a brand new trading engine, all-new trading tools, ultra-convenient widgets, updated reporting and history tools, and much more.

Here are the results of the PrimeXBT $100,000 Bug Bounty Contest!

PrimeXBT $100,000 Bug Bounty Contest Results

The Bug Bounty Contest included a test drive of the new PrimeXBT platform planned for a launch in the coming months. Users had a chance to earn prizes for trading or finding issues ahead of the public launch. The Bug Bounty Contest included a trading competition using risk-free virtual funds, where users could compete for additional crypto rewards.

The results are now in. The total number of reports sent to the official [email protected] or via PrimeXBT’s 24/7 live customer support chat was 166.

The 52 genuine reports are further broken down into 26 improvement suggestions and 26 bug reports. Of the 26 bug reports, 11 were classified as high-severity trading bugs, 3 were medium-severity trading bugs, and 12 were low-severity bugs.

The remainder of the 166 user reports were support questions where users contacted PrimeXBT’s customer support chat for assistance on properly using the new platform’s functionality. For example, many users reported “flashing messages” when orders would fill.

PrimeXBT Says Thanks: Rewards Have Been Distributed To Users

We want to extend a sincere thank you to all that participated in the Bug Bounty Contest and especially those that reported and helped our developers track down bugs that could impact the experience when we are ready to debut the updated trading platform experience later this year.
