Today we will tell you how our bounty automation platform with partner projects works and how to participate in ongoing campaigns.

What is the Bounty campaign?

There are a lot of projects creates in the market of crypto currency that have their own unique idea of ​​using blockchain technology. Most of them do not have enough money to start work and they are looking for potential investors among all people — this process is called ICO. Some of them turn out to be deceivers, take away the investors’ funds and disappear without a trace.

It’s not just a delicious candy with coconut pulp

Every company needs a good marketing to make successful ICO. But what to do when there is no money for advertising? Search for other solutions. And here the bounty campaign can help you — it’s such a thing invented by cunning marketers, where any person or agency can help in advertising, but they will receive the project’s tokens, they are similar to shares.

So people can help the project by advertising on social networks, on their pages, on blogs, on YouTube, on the thematic bitcointalk forum and elsewhere — for that they receive shares from the pool of tokens.
Further, if the project successfully collects the necessary funds for launching, tokens goes on the stock exchange. And then all earned shares in the bounty can be exchanged for real money.

What is this platform for?

Most of modern bounties are checked exclusively by hand and run in Google spreadsheets, they are very similar to Excel. Accordingly, the bounty manager can change them as he wants — to close them from the general access, remove the participants, replace the rewards, and simply make a lot of mistakes in the calculations. And hunters (members of the bounty campaigns) can not see the information in a convenient form and they are not protected from managerial tricks.

So the standard table looks like. It is launched without automation and without our platform. And this is a pretty good example.

The BountyPlatform.io was created to minimize any manager errors by adding automation elements, and to give transparency to the system, so all participants could see any changes in calculations and tasks.

The platform automates Bitcointalk, Facebook, Twitter, Telegram and other campaigns, the manager has only to check the quality of posts.

And so looks like our interactive table in the bounty platform
