Hacken Cup Announcement

White hat hacker community is one of the pillars on which HackenProof is built upon. Without a dedicated community of cybersecurity researchers, no bug bounty platform would be able to function. Meeting the members of our community in person is an integral part of our culture. With that in mind, HackenProof is thrilled to announce an upcoming onsite bug bounty marathon event – Hacken Cup!

What is Hacken Cup?

Hacken Cup is an onsite bug bounty marathon where 20 carefully selected hackers will look for vulnerabilities in web, mobile apps and smart contracts. The event will take place on the 8th of October in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Companies that want their products tested, will have a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with some of the top hackers in the world, build relationships with the hacker community and uncover security vulnerabilities that can cause financial and reputation losses.

Hacken Cup Schedule 

The whole event is split into 3 days (7th – 9th October):

Day 1:

We meet the hackers in Kyiv, settle everyone in a hotel and have a networking evening party.

Day 2:

The whole day is dedicated to an onsite bug bounty marathon, with a ceremony at the end to celebrate the top bug hunters and a bar party to wind down!

Day 3:

Entertainment Day – we take hackers to the infamous Chernobyl site on a day trip (For everyone that wishes to skip the trip and stay in Kiev we’ll have sightseeing tour around the city). Once everyone is safely back in Kyiv – we’ll have a goodbye dinner.

How do I take part in Hacken Cup?

We have a limited number of slots, only 20 top hackers will be chosen to participate in the event. But any hacker from around the world who wants to attend has a chance to earn their way in. Go to our Hacken Cup page and apply!
