ConsenSys “not giving away ether” Diligence is giving away ether! Kind of.

is deploying a series of vulnerable smart contracts to put your hacking skills to the test. The first CTF challenge is dubbed Ethereum Sandbox, and is at . Exploit the contract and extract the 0.05 ether. There’s also a 200 DAI up for grabs. The rules for winning the bounty:

  • If you’re first to extract the ETH and post a write-up on how you did it, you win the bounty (you’ll need to prove ownership of the attacker’s address)
  • If you’re not first to extract the ETH but solved the challenge, you can still post a write-up. In case the original thief does not claim the bounty, we’ll pick the best write-up as the winner.

To exploit the contract, you’ll need reverse engineering skills, deep Ethereum knowledge, and a healthy dose of critical thinking. If you have any questions, head to the . Good luck and have fun!
