    HACK TEST COMPETITION

    We are offering 1 million XFUEL to anyone who can send us a WRITTEN DESCRIPTION of a hack through our PoSign system.

    Rules:


    1. DDOS does not qualify - this system is only on 6 servers currently and eventually 10.
    2. Must send written description - If you actually hack through you are disqualified from the prize.

    We are looking for someone to find a solution to changing the blocks and/or execute invalid transactions. ( again, executing the hack = disqualification )

    The purpose of this test is to reveal any holes that need to be patched. XFUEL is not only the development token for XTRABYTES it is also Proof of Tech and it is also good for "target practice" so that we can make sure the XTRABYTES platform is locked down before it goes live with the other 2 layers of tech ( VITALS and PULSE ).

    If you discover a hack, please send it by DM ( private message - here on the forum ) to me: CCRevolution and it will be verified. After we have patched the hack, it will be published and the XFUEL prize will be delivered.

    Thank you!

    Dave and Zoltan

    Surely you have to execute the hack to know if it works or not, I could just give you a description of "I'm going to fire some bits at your bytes to change a block after the genesis block" and that pretty much fits the bill and will probably be correct assuming a vulnerability is found :)

    Wahoo 1,000,000 Xfuel will be mine lol

    i have a question


    If 1 person wins the XFUEL, does the contest end, or can there be multiple winners? Assuming there are multiple hacks.

    It shows that xby maybe one of the most secured crypt coin, but few people would join before xby became more familiar in crypt world.
