LocalBitcoins whitehat program for security researchers

LocalBitcoins recognizes the importance of security researchers in helping keep our community safe. We encourage responsible disclosure of security vulnerabilities via our bug bounty program described on this page.

Responsible Disclosure

Responsible disclosure includes

  1. Providing us a reasonable amount of time to fix the issue before publishing it elsewhere.
  2. Making a good faith effort to not leak or destroy any LocalBitcoins user data.
  3. Not defrauding LocalBitcoins users or LocalBitcoins itself in the process of discovery.

In order to encourage responsible disclosure, we promise not to bring legal action against researchers who point out a problem provided they do their best to follow the above guidelines.

Thank you for helping keep the bitcoin community safe!
