The reward for detecting bugs can be up to 1 million USD. However, instead of paying in cash, this reward will be paid in the form of AXS tokens, which unlock after 6 months.
This is considered a move to strengthen the security of Sky Mavis after the Ronin bridge attack on March 29. This is the most damaging cryptocurrency attack in history when it lost up to 622 million USD in cryptocurrency.
Sky Mavis then held a funding round of 150 million USD with the participation of many large organizations such as Binance to fulfill its commitment to compensate all users affected by the attack. Also last week, Sky Mavis launched Axie Infinity: Origin version with many new improvements in gameplay, graphics, card effects and additional items.

The hacker wallet still has more than 151,000 ETH (equivalent to about 460 million USD).
