Few days after Binance compensated 31 selected Tron (TRX) traders with 5,000,000 TRX, the altcoin has announced it disbursed $25,000 to 5 developers who are actively involved in redefining the Tron community. This time, the selected developers reviewed Tron’s open-source code on GitHub and reported discoveries of bugs in the codes.
Tron declared that it launched GitHub Bug Bounty Program to encourage its developer’s community members to review Tron’s open-source code.
Tron team said the program was “launched with the aim of incentivizing global community developers to contribute to the development of Tron ecosystem and to exhibit unity in a decentralized world and the charm of decentralization.”
Interestingly, the outcome of the June GitHub Bug Bounty showed the readiness of Tron’s developers to see that the cryptocurrency’s code is free from bugs that may result in hackers intruding the platform maliciously.

Speaking about the development, Tron team said:
“Though individual capacity is limited, we believe in the infinite power of a united community. Through hosting events as such, we aspire to stimulate innovation and progress in Tron’s blockchain development efforts so as to create greater value at higher efficiency.”
Importantly, the GitHub Bug Bounty is now halted, however, it has been replaced with the Bug Bounty project for the MainNet, which is now completely transferred to HackerOne.
