Coinbase is excited to announce a partnership with HackerOne, a platform that enables organizations to host bug bounty and vulnerability disclosure programs. Now, white hat hackers from across the world will be able to receive payment for their work in bitcoin. Programs hosted on HackerOne include Yahoo!, Twitter, and Square.

The benefit is clear for these researchers. Bounty winners who select bitcoin as their preferred payout option not only receive their payment at lightspeed compared to traditional payment methods, but also receive up to a 5% higher payment thanks to savings passed on from drastically reduced fees.


The launch of this partnership is particularly exciting given our recent international expansion. Recipients of bitcoin in the United States and in more than 18 Eurozone countries can now easily convert their payout to dollars or Euros.
