The Chrysalis Attack-a-thon

The IOTA Foundation members and the IOTA ecosystem are eager to see Chrysalis on mainnet. Now after months of development, testing and auditing by external companies we are nearly ready for the transition to Chrysalis.

In the lead up to the network upgrade we are inviting the IOTA community members to the Chrysalis Attack-a-thon!

With the Attack-a-thon we would like to challenge you to try and break different parts of Chrysalis. You will be rewarded for your findings.

The Chrysalis Attack-a-thon is a security researcher/developer/rustacean oriented challenge. Everyone is invited to join and try to grab a few small prizes. It’s intended as a fun community experience, which you will see reflected in the rewards.

The Attack-a-thon runs for around 10 days: it starts on the 18th of March 2021 at 2PM UTC and ends with the 28th of March 2021 at 11:59 PM UTC.

Note. Don’t mistake this with IOTA’s “incentivized testnet” which will be launched after the Coordicide testnet reaches its “Nectar” stage.
