2,000 Dai worth of Gitcoin bounties across Ethereum projects In the first part of our 10,000 Dai partnership, The Stable Fund pledged to allocate 2,000 Dai — MakerDAO’s Stablecoin — across Ethereum infrastructure repositories to move projects forward through pull requests. https://medium.com/gitcoin/grow-open-source-gitcoin-makerdao-4f9df702afea
In the first part of our 10,000 Dai partnership, The Stable Fund pledged to allocate 2,000 Dai — MakerDAO’s Stablecoin — across Ethereum infrastructure repositories to move projects forward through pull requests.
This has now been completed! Thus far, issues have been solved across the Solidity, web3py, Casper FFG, and ETH Utils repo’s as a result of the MakerDAO contribution. Let’s dive into the key results and pending issues.
In one issue, Jonny Burger, helped Truffle founder Tim Coulter with a unique issue when upgrading Truffle to Solidity 0.4.11.
Alongside the 5 issues completed, there are 5 more issues in progress via Gitcoin bounties.
Piper worked with @mikery, who was paid out 100 Dai for providing better error messaging around ABI’s.
Danny Ryan and team are working on the Ethereum implementation of Casper FFG (the Friendly Finality Gadget), a Proof-of-Stake finality protocol that can be layered on any block proposal mechanism.
In one issue worth 140 Dai, @paulhaner ensured that validators had a backup for making withdrawals from the staking pool.
In a few hairier issues, Alex Stokes has been helping migrate the purity checker from the deprecated Serpent library. While at the final stages, there has been a phenomenal amount of thinking into doing this appropriately.
Casper FFG is a stated priority of the Ethereum ecosystem as a whole and we’re proud to have supported the seeds of this project!
Eth-Utils houses common utility functions for codebases which interact with Ethereum. Piper Merriam requested one issue regarding this and serial bounty hunter @dilatebrave took down the 75 Dai for completing it in a day.
He’s done work on Raiden, cpp-ethereum, Bounties Network, and Gitcoin itself in the past.
The 2,000 Dai allocated towards the Ethereum infrastructure layer has turned out to be a great start for the MakerDAO + Gitcoin partnership. With a humble initial amount of Dai, we’ve helped solve issues across a variety of important repo’s and while providing a stable option of payment to Gitcoin bounty hunters.
We’re excited to continue posting future bounties across repositories and telling the stories of the individuals who work to move the ecosystem forward.
