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.

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.
Today, I’m excited to announce that Gitcoin Requests is live!
It’s very simple.
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.
While Gitcoin Requests v0.1 is very bear bones, we’re excited to get it out into the wild and grow it from here. To that end:
Make a request today. Share with your friends. Find work which fits you.
We would appreciate any and all feedback you have! Let us know what you’re thinking on Slack. We look forward to growing open source alongside you.
