As reported recently, Hacken, the prominent cybersecurity and cryptocurrency community organized the first Grey Hat hackers idea competition where the hackers and computer enthusiasts are able to submit their ideas of detecting vulnerabilities in DeFi projects. The event offers grey hat hackers to get a chance of implementing their ideas with the support of the Hacken community as legitimate White Hat hackers.
The Hacken community started accepting submissions on January 19th for ideas for the hackathon on the website. As applications started pouring in, someone found an innovative way to submit the application by hacking into the website and posting a message with info about the idea. The message said that the site was hacked and that they considered hacking into the website and submit their idea but they stood a much better chance of winning the contest this way. These applications want to develop a project that uses Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to secure the projects built on ETH and Polkadot. They also intend to create a global database of wallets holding illicit funds so that the DEfi solutions are able to combat money laundering.
