The proposal has been questioned on the governance discussion board as effectively, as acknowledged by one voter:
“Agree 100% that making customers funds entire ASAP is the highest precedence however a $50m ‘bug bounty’ is ridiculous. At most the exploiter ought to get their prices again ($15m?) plus $10m. $10m whitehat bounty is what was supplied to the $600m wormhole hacker. Mango can negotiate higher than this, particularly given the exploiter is basically doxed.”
