Bounty Earnings YoY Growth by Region

Hackers around the world increased their earnings this past year, with APAC realizing 131% growth year-over-year. EMEA earnings nearly doubled, with 90% growth, and North America and LATAM both increased earnings by more than 60%.

Countries at the top maintained their status as biggest payers, with Russia ($887,000), the United Kingdom ($559,000), Singapore ($506,000), and Canada ($497,000) rounding out the top five. Russia moved up from sixth place last year to push Germany into sixth place with $363,000 in bounties paid.

Program Growth YoY By Region

North America remains the largest region, with 69% of all programs, but it’s being challenged by all other regions. EMEA alone accounted for 20% of all new programs launched in the past year, and year-over-year growth in APAC was 93%—nearly doubling in total number of programs in that region.
