Trading futures, fixing bugs: a live Smart Contracts installation #414
[ UUID ] ad78df99-bbcf-45f4-9ced-d57ea554ab51
[ Session Name ] Trading futures, fixing bugs: a live Smart Contracts installation
[ Submitter's Name ] Don Marti
[ Additional facilitators ] Rich Bodo,Andy Leak,
What will happen in your session?
Participants will interact with a live decentralized market where they can trade “futures contracts” on the outcome of software bugs. Everyone will be able to join in, from the user’s own browser or one of our trading stations, and choose from a variety of activities.
What is the goal or outcome of your session?
Participants will increase their understanding of how market mechanisms can enable participants in a collaborative project to share information, and how bug futures compare to other organizational tools such as crowdfunding and crowdsourcing.
If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.
This could all fit on a medium to large table. It would be good to have a stand for the monitor showing charts, to help attract participants who are exploring the “openness” space.
All weekend, as an installation, exhibit or drop-in session
Mozilla is providing laptops. I understand that the show will provide a large monitor.
There is a work in progress repository here: https://github.com/mozilla/bugmark-docs with some bugs that we can trade on. It's a Jekyll repo so all you need is Markdown (or plain text) to contribute.
@malvikarao has added some issues for suggested topics.
