Leaderboard for unique number of trade TX per party can be found here!

In addition to the trading game incentive, we would highly appreciate any bugs or suggestions of improvements to the console to be submitted on github discussions.

The project will also benefit from all the data created, metrics collected, and feedback received, which will help develop and improve the protocol. If we’re really lucky and something goes wrong we might even find and fix some bugs!

Bug hunting

We have set up the Bughunting program to enhance the deployment process by detecting any additional bugs before the final release. As part of this program, rewards will be given based on the severity of the bug and whether it’s related to the Front End or Core.

It is important to note that in order to qualify for the rewards, the reported bugs must be within the defined scope, unique, reproducible, and recorded in Github discussions. If multiple users report the same bug, we will apply a “first come, first served” approach, and the user who reported it first in the Github discussions will be eligible for the reward. Thank you for your participation in helping us identify and eliminate any potential issues.

Bughunt in scope

Front End:

  • Console
  • Desktop Wallet
  • Fairground testnet
  • Browserwallet (Chrome, Firefox)
  • CLI Wallet
  • Core:

  • Any bug found on the Core through use of the APIs and the CLI Wallet
  • Out of scope

  • Bugs already recorded in Core known issues
  • Bugs already recorded in Front End known issues
  • Bugs already recorded in Github discussions
  • Bugs found linked to the Governance App
  • Block Explorer
  • Reward structure

    Core0 $VEGA*50 $VEGA**150 $VEGA300 $VEGA
    Front End0 $VEGA*50 $VEGA**150 $VEGA250 $VEGA

    Trivial: The defect does not affect functionality or data. It does not even need a workaround. It does not impact productivity or efficiency. It is merely an inconvenience. Example: Petty layout discrepancies, spelling/grammatical errors.

    Minor: The defect affects minor functionality or non-critical data. It has an easy workaround. Example: A minor feature that is not functional in one module but the same task is easily doable from another module.

    Major: The defect affects major functionality or major data. It has a workaround but is not obvious and is difficult. Example: A feature is not functional from one module but the task is doable if 10 complicated indirect steps are followed in another module/s.

    Critical: The defect affects critical functionality or critical data. It does not have a workaround. Example: Unsuccessful installation, complete failure of a feature.

    *Maximum number of Minor paid is 5 Core and 5 Front End each. If we receive over 5 we will raffle 5 winners in each of those two categories.


    After 25th September 2023, winners will be able to get a token claim link by logging onto the token rewards website with the Twitter account used to register for Fairground Incentives (this is the Twitter handle on the list above). You will be asked to confirm your country of residence - unfortunately, those in restricted countries will not be able to claim tokens.

    This is a unique, one time use link, and not specific to any individual so it can be used by anyone to claim tokens. Please treat it with the same security as you would a token. Unfortunately, Vega cannot rectify any mistakes, lost links, or links that have already been used. You know the drill!

    All tokens have a linear vesting. All tokens, either locked or vested, can be staked on the Vega network once it is live.

    Further information

    All announcements for this incentivised period will be made via the official Fairground Twitter account @VegaFairground so make sure you follow to stay up to date. This includes changes, updates and early closing of the period.

    Check out the Incentive Terms and Conditions for information related to all incentives.


    • Breaking things is encouraged! Tell us how you broke them and we may give you a tip if it’s found to be a critical bug. Demonstrate exactly how to reproduce it here. Include screenshots/code snippets in as much detail as possible to be eligible for a tip.
    • The Vega project reserves the right to not reward participants that are not participating in the community spirit of the incentive programs i.e. botting to collect as many rewards as possible or using an exploit to win an incentive.
    • In the event of unforeseen issues and/or a network crash (or essential reset) we will either restart the event OR track and reward those that participated successfully. The course of action will depend on the unforeseen issue. If you miss out, don’t worry, there are many more incentives planned for the coming weeks and months.
    • Attempting to create multiple entries by changing twitter handles, having multiple personal accounts, using bot or farmed twitter accounts or by any other means will result in disqualification from this, and any future, incentives.
