Requests-for-bounties on specific Github issues, by maintainers and contributors alike

Mid-day Monday morning, Gitcoiner pinkiebell is meandering through popular web 3 repos on Github. He knows the Gitcoin team has an Ethereum Foundation grant to post bounties across Ethereum infrastructure repos and keeps that in mind.

While he has already completed 12 good bounties from Gitcoin’s Issue Explorer, he knows there’s many issues out there without bounties which can use help. He makes his way to Ethereum’s Web3Py repo and finds a number of ‘Good First Issues’. He finds one he can do in a few hours, and makes a Gitcoin Request for 100 DAI in funding. The Gitcoin team funds in within the hour.

Funny enough, Carver (a Web3Py maintainer) also makes a Gitcoin Request today. He has an interesting issue on building a Hive integration and thinks it would be worth 400 DAI if someone could contribute. This also makes it’s way onto the Gitcoin platform.


Gitcoin Requests

Today, I’m excited to announce that Gitcoin Requests is live!

http://gitcoin.co/requests

It’s very simple.

  1. Request a bounty on any Github issue, stating how much you think it should be funded (aim for $40/hr for a developer, at least)
  2. Gitcoin Core will evaluate whether it makes sense for us to fund the issue out of our grant funding to support open source (thanks to the Ethereum Foundation, Ethereum Community Fund, and Stable Fund).

Gitcoin Requests

This is Gitcoin Requests v0.1. We have high hopes for the future of the product. If you’re interested in following our broader progress on the Requests feature-set, see Github Issues 1694 and 1855.

As we build a double sided marketplace, we’d like to build an atmosphere where both Gitcoin funders and Gitcoin developers have a voice into a) what they want to work on and b) the price points at which they are willing to work.

This is an important product step on our path to building a platform that maximizes freedom.
