Crown bounty program
Incentivising community development contributions
We are pleased to announce the launch of the Crown bounty program. Thanks to the community “sweeper” superblock proposals and some donations, we now have some funds to cover bounties for community-delivered projects.
Several months ago we reviewed the Gitlab open issues and identified some ideal candidates for tackling by community members or external coders. We tagged them with the “Community” label and published a Medium article inviting community effort to resolve some of those issues. With no bounties available, unsurprisingly, the response was not great!
The original bounty projects list was a Google docs spreadsheet. Technology progresses and the list will soon be tokenised using the Crown NFT framework. The community fund does not currently have sufficient balance to cover all of the bounty program tasks. We plan to add a “Bounty” label to the Gitlab issues which are active at any one time and also tag those issues with the level of bounty allocated. This will make it easy for anyone to see which issues currently have a bounty attached, and the amount. Simply click here and there’s no need to refer to the spreadsheet.
We will continue to sweep unallocated funds from future superblocks and some community members have indicated a willingness to donate to the fund so we expect to be able to cover all of the bounty tasks in time. If you would like to donate to the community fund please send CRW to CRWW8wDhtZjv8rNfzySvsR2HyGZXRUZwJmZj
If you are interested in working on a bounty task please comment directly in the Gitlab issue, or use the Discord Gitlab updater bot to update the issue, or simply comment in the #bounty-program channel in Discord.
