The new bug bounty program will allow XinFin Dev Team to discover and resolve all the bugs, pertaining to exploits and vulnerabilities in TestNet Apothem; before XinFin rolls out its MainNet. The bounty program will help in the SEO optimization of XinFin products and will also create awareness about XinFin TestNet, which is currently running live at:

Atul Khekade, XinFin Ecosystem Development Head said, “We chose to announce the bug bounty program seeing the interest and curiosity of community members who wanted to know more about XinFin masternodes. The community wanted to set-up, run, and test XinFin TestNet nodes themselves. So, we decided to launch a new bounty program to encourage active community involvement surrounding TestNet masternodes. We believe the community will help us boost XinFin TestNet and iron out all the network’s inaccuracies before we switch to XinFin MainNet which we are planning to roll out on 1st June, 2019”

a) XinFin TestNet “Apothem” Masternode Bounty
Before discussing how to set up a XinFin masternode, let’s know what is a XinFin Masternode and the prerequisites to perform the task:

XinFin Masternode
XinFin’s token XDC supplants proof-of-work consensus algorithm with a randomized delegated proof-of-stake (rDPoS) consensus algorithm, fundamentally using the concept of “validators”. Validators are special (full) nodes which get incentivized for validating each transaction which may be accepted or rejected by the validator. Setting up masternodes on XDC protocol makes the decentralized blockchain network more trusted, more stable, and more self-sustainable. Masternodes are benefitted in the form of reputation building, enhanced reliability, increased incentive gains, and capability to deploy their own dApp/use case on the network.

Things Needed To Set Up A Masternode
· A minimum of 10, 000,000 XDC stake by masternode holder

· Wallet (preferably hardware) to store XDC tokens

· Dedicated and stable hardware

· Dedicated static public IP address

· 100% IDC Network uptime

· A minimum of Tier 3 IDC Network

· Virtual Private Server (VPS)

· Cloud services
