The Ethereum Foundation has launched two networks for hackers to test their security in exchange for a reward, CoinTelegraph has reported.

The foundation has reportedly launched two public Ethereum 2.0 networks based on existing clients so that hackers can find security problems on the network in exchange for a reward.

There are currently two "beta-0" attack networks based on Lighthouse and Prysm clients, built respectively by Sigma Prime and Prysmatic Labs.

According to yesterday's announcement, the networks are real and only have certain limitations. For example, just 4 nodes and 128 validators have been deployed, while the number of validators is expected to exceed thousands on the official Ethereum 2.0 network.

In addition, users cannot deposit funds. The aim of these tests is to check if any attack can make the network unusable for at least 102 minutes, or 1 hour and 42 minutes.

Successful individual hackers and groups will be rewarded with $5,000.
