Did someone say “bounty?” Oh, yes we did!

The Decentralized News Network is inviting all interested participants to take part in the blockchain-based media company’s bounty program, which will run from November 6th until the end of the public crowdsale.

The aim of the program is to provide supporters with an opportunity to secure DNN tokens, in exchange for participation in DNN tasks. We’re on our way to a full product release slated for 2018, and we want you to be a part of the journey!

The program is split between marketing initiatives, and discovering vulnerabilities in DNN’s smart contracts. These contracts can be found here.

The bounty pool will be comprised of one percent of the total token supply or the equivalent of 10 million DNN tokens. Half of the tokens in the bounty pool will be set aside for marketing tasks, “marketing bounty pool,” with the remaining half allocated to code specific bugs, “bug bounty pool.”

DNN Bounty Breakdown

To ensure that everyone has the opportunity to earn tokens, stakes will be given during the duration of the bounty program for each task a participant completes. At the conclusion of the bounty program, the amount of stakes a participant earns will represent the percentage of tokens that he or she is entitled to. The entitlement will stem from the tokens allocated to each task’s bounty pool.

To get credit for each task, please join the DNN Slack or DNN Telegram, and fill out the DNN Participation Form with the details of the bounty you have completed.

So, without further adieu, here is some additional information about the bounty categories on the marketing side:

NOTE: If we find that a user has joined any of our bounties with multiple accounts per platform the user and all his/her Ethereum accounts will be removed from the bounty with no rewards. In an effort to ensure fairness, all participants must contribute weekly to the bounty until the end of the token sale. If any participant misses a week, they will risk being removed from the bounty program.

The four-week series will focus on a range of topics — fake news, sensationalism, publishing bias, bi-partisanship, etc — but with the centric theme of accountability standing at the forefront of each discussion.

Our goal is to open up the dialogue on relevant issues, and we believe you have valuable insight to share with the world. We anticipate a series of media experts to join our conversations.

What we mean by accountability is that quality and accurate news creation, dissemination, and consumption is a collective issue, meaning the solution must stem from collaborative effort. Connect with these events via our website at
