At Cobalt we love our researchers. With all their hard work, our platform has enabled them to earn over 1000 bounties! This means we are almost to our 1337th bounty, and that number has special meaning to our researchers and us.
For the few that aren’t aware, 1337 in Leetspeak means Leet, short for elite. First written in the 1980s on BBS’s, it continues to be used to denote awesomeness; especially in tech, gaming, and security circles.
With that in mind, we will be awarding two prizes in anticipation of Cobalt’s 1337th bounty rewarded:
The W00t Prize
Between now and bounty 1337, we are awarding an additional $100 randomly to one bounty!
The LEET Prize
We are doubling the 1337th bounty! When the security researcher collects their bounty we will double it.
There’s no time to lose! Check out our clients page to see who you can test. As of this posting we have had 1258 bounties rewarded, so it won’t be long now. Keep an eye on our twitter feed for updates on the chase.
