Pwning.eth Earns Second Whitehat Hall of Fame NFT

Pwning.eth has earned a second Whitehat Hall of Fame NFT for his critical bug find in Moonbeam on May 27, 2022, following his first Hall of Fame NFT for finding a major vulnerability in Aurora.

We’d like to congratulate pwning.eth for racking up win after win. This may not be the last, either. Stay tuned to see what pwning.eth will do next…

Each Whitehat Hall of Fame NFT card is a 1/1 made specifically for each landmark bug report and legendary whitehat, all designed to suit the hacker’s ultimate persona. It is minted from to ensure authenticity.

This time, we worked with an artist to show pwning.eth decked out in his bounty hunter armor, planting the Immunefi flag on an unidentified planet somewhere in the Milky Way galaxy.

On that planet, he discovered an old, but still operational military base of alien origin pointing its weapons directly at Moonbeam and shut it down–permanently.

Moonbeam awarded pwning.eth with a bounty of $1,000,000, and Moonwell, a project also affected by the vulnerability, added an extra $50,000 on top, making pwning.eth’s total reward $1,050,000.

His second Hall of Fame NFT is available here on OpenSea and on our Hall of Fame page.

Here’s the whitehat card legend for the pwning.eth Moonbeam card, left to right:

Bow: Well-written PoC
Lightning: Rare/complex type of exploit
Impact of Attack: 7
Ease of Defense: 5

The NFT collection itself is available here.

You might be wondering: how do I earn one of these cards?

These cards are issued to whitehats who report critical bugs via Immunefi on a case-by-case basis. Not every critical bug will deserve a whitehat card. These cards are reserved for the most legendary whitehats who report the most legendary bugs. If your critical bug find has a huge impact, you might just be eligible for a whitehat card that puts you in the Whitehat Hall of Fame.

We look forward to creating more cards for this series. Every whitehat card we mint is a historic occasion.

You might also be wondering: if I’ve earned one of these cards, can I earn another?

Absolutely. The more cards a whitehat earns, the more they show the world — and other hackers — how elite and legendary they are.
