Speaking as someone that knows a thing or two about bug bounty programs, I
strongly suggest you start with the wall of fame. After you've fixed all
the found issues and have an understanding of roughly how many bugs you'll
get on-going, then you can allocate funds (bounties, swag, etc) for bugs.
If you do it from the beginning, I guarantee you'll break the bank.
Also, be sure your terms of service prohibit providing anything of monetary
worth to persons on the sanctions list or persons residing in
sanctioned/embargoed countries. I'm assuming Bug Crowd is vetting the bug
researchers for this.
