DP #1: Bounty0x.io - Bounty Hunting District #1
We've reached our $250k pre-sale cap.
We launched our main website bounty0x.io
We've launched our teaser site, bounty0x.io
We've launched our alpha platform at alpha.bounty0x.io
Bounty0x.io is being developed into a full bounty campaign management platform which will be governed as a district on the district0x network. The bount0x platform will enable startups to easily host bounty campaigns, and bounty hunters to complete bounties.
If you are a start up planning on holding a bounty campaign, message us to learn more about how to use our platform.
If you are a bounty hunter and interested in learning how to earn money by performing bounty campaign tasks, message us to learn more.
As always view our white paper and let us know if you have any feedback.
Bounty0x — September 21st weekly update
Bounty0x has the following announcements to make for the week of September 21, 2017. As you may recall, last week we announced the addition of our CTO, as well as commencing development of our bounty0x alpha platform which will be ready on October 1st, 2017. This week we are announcing among other things, the addition of two new members to the bounty0x team.
We've rebranded as bounty0x.io
A brief summary of our September 21, 2017 update:
As mentioned in the intro to our weekly update, for the second week in a row our team is expanding. Last week we brought on our Technical co-founder, and this week we are adding two new members to the team, Chang and Rahul. We are excited to begin working with them and making progress on the bounty0x platform.
Chang fills our need for a community manager. Bounty0x is overseeing community management for a startup holding their ICO in beginning September 25, 2017. To that end we have brought on a community manager named Chang Zapanta to manage our clients upcoming bounty campaign. Chang worked for Mercedes Benz as an accountant prior to moving to the UK and is currently pursuing an advanced degree. She will be managing the day to day community management activities for our client, including daily blog posting and moderation of our client’s Slack and social media channels.
Since our last post, we have made significant progress on platform development. Not only have we submitted our token sale contract for security audits, and hired Griflan to begin working on our website, but we have also started development of our alpha platform the backend of which initially will be centralized.
Alpha phase of the platform is coming along as planned. At current stage we are pleased to announce that fundamental foundations of the Alpha API has been developed alongside the database design. We are currently in process of building up on the foundations to add further capabilities to the API and have commenced work on the frontend of our platform. As set out in our initial plan of development the above updates are inline with Alpha and will evolve to a more decentralised backend on the Ethereum blockchain as we proceed.
Bounty0x — September 13th update
Bounty0x currently plans to launch the alpha platform on or about October 1, 2017. The repo is available for review on bitbucket. The alpha platform will contain a mechanism for bounty hunters to submit completed bounties and initially support a review process whereby reviews are manually conducted by bounty0x team members instead of by bounty sheriffs. Following the tokensale and launch of our BNTY token we will incorporate bounty sheriff functionality which will enable BNTY token holders to perform a reviewing function. Simultaneously we are finalizing our tokensale contract for our upcoming tokensale which is scheduled for November 2017. We are also in the process of hiring a security auditor team to perform a review of the token sale contract.
Bounty0x Clients and Partners
Bounty0x is proud to announce the first client has been signed on to use the bounty0x platform for bounty management campaign management. Their ICO is scheduled to kick off on October 1, 2017. We are adding new clients every day, and are engaging in partnership agreements with multiple blockchain startups. Finally, we have entered into talks with an ICO incubator to manage the bounty campaign for five or more of their startups.
We are negotiating agreements to manage the upcoming bounty campaign for multiple startups in anticipation of their respective ICO’s. In light of this, we are expanding our team and will be hiring community managers to join Bounty0x to perform additional community management services.
Bounty0x is proud to announce that Deniz Dalkilic has joined the Bounty0x team as a co-founder and lead developer. Deniz is currently a software engineer at Thomson Reuters and prior to that lead software engineer at Capgemini. At Thomson Reuters he has been preparing blockchain based solutions for pricing financial instruments. Bounty0x is also in the process of interviewing a front end engineer to develop the platform front end and expects to have a candidate onboard by the end of next week to begin front end development of the alpha platform.
Website design is progressing. We are negotiating a timeline to have our tokensale website live by mid-November so that we will have ample time to market the ICO in advance of the tokensale date.
Name of District
"Bounty0x.io" - Enabling startups to manage bounty programs, and users to receive payment for completing bounties.
We believe in the decentralized economy and this district will push forward the vision of a decentralized future by accomplishing two keys tasks: (1) making it easier for ICO startups to manage bounty programs, post bounties, and disburse payments to contributors and (2) making it easier for users wishing to participate in a bounty program to search bounty listings being offered, participate in said bounties, complete tasks, and receive rewards.
Frequently blockchain startups use bounties in order to accomplish tasks, however the current options available are very cumbersome. Teams usually are required to post on bitcoin talk or slack what bounties are available. It can be difficult for users to locate which bounties are still available and see which projects are accepting bounties. The process is inefficient and time consuming.
This district will be a one stop shop for startups who are seeking to have bounties completed, and for users who want to complete bounties. The UI will be very intuitive, much like Ethlance. Users will be able to search through available bounties and select those which they want to complete. Upon completion of a bounty they will be paid out and receive rewards. Teams will be able to easily and efficiently pay disburse payments to contributors who have fulfilled the requirements of any bounties. A verification process will be built in to verify that each job was successfully completed.
A bounty program is an offer made by many websites and software developers by which individuals can receive recognition and compensation for reporting bugs, performing tasks, advertising on social media etc. Bounty programs are also a frequently used tool used by ICO startups. Examples of bounties frequently posted by ICO startups include translation of website text, articles, blog posts, social media posts, and software development.
The "ICO Bounty Management District" district will serve as a central hub for all bounties. It will enable decentralized and block-chain companies to post and list bounties, as well as distribute payments to contributors upon completing of said bounties. The district will also serve the purpose of enabling users to view, sort, filter and search all the bounty listings that have been posted. Users may submit completed bounties and receive coin distributions to specific addresses upon verification that a bounty was successfully completed. Blockchain companies holding ICO's will be able to post bounty rewards into an escrow system to be distributed upon completion of the bounty. A trusted third party may be chosen to distribute funds upon satisfactory completion of bounties. Users will be able to accept tasks, define completion dates, and submit completed bounties to the bounty listing page for approval by a trusted third party.
The district can be monetized easily. Organizations might be interested in highlighting their bounties for greater exposure, and that could be a good starting point for monetizing the district. Sponsored posts could be purchased by organizations. Likewise users seeking to be selected for bounties could be given priority over other members by purchasing subscriptions or premium accounts. The mechanism could be similar to the Ethlance sponsorship mechanism.
Bounty0x.io will be best specialized towards assisting ICO's however the platform need not be limited to to ICO bounties, but can serve as a hub to any bounty ever!

Nice work @AngeloAdam!
I like this idea, and have played around with some similar ideas as well. There is significant overlap with https://commiteth.com which is being used by Status and Aragon, among others in the space already.
The core developer Ricardo, is a great guy, and might be open to some sort of integration or collaboration, as I don't think his immediate focus is on providing a front-end interface for finding and sorting bounties.
I think the other thing to consider for this idea is monetization. It probably does not make sense to take any sort of cut of bounties, but I expect that many organizations might be interested in highlighting their bounties for greater exposure, and that could be a good starting point for monetizing the district.
Edit: Also based on the description it sounds like there may be a need for multiple bounty types, one for bounties that can be claimed only once, and one for bounties that are on going such as posting on social media. I think that's probably worth highlighting in the issue description.
Thanks for sharing @AngeloAdam, cool idea! This would be a great way to manage a bounty program.
I would envision this functioning a lot like Ethlance today, making use of its sponsorship feature. We will be adding ERC20 support soon which would seem to round out the additional functionality needed to make this work.

I agree that some collaboration with Commiteth would be a great idea. Would be interested to see if they would like to participate in the district or have some advice. Do you know Ricardo or anyone from that team and how to contact them for some feedback/collaboration?
I like the idea of monetization of the distrcit via sponsored posts.
Commiteth v2 will feature minting tokens by contribution and bounties, commiteth v3 will feature source code governance by a token source (such as tokens minted by contribution, or by an ICO). Those features might be integrated with districts, such as, using the projects tokens in a district or governance.
Thanks Ricardo. Looking forward to a potential collaboration with Commiteth Angelo Adam…

Very interesting idea, I can definitely see this among the most popular districts.
A couple weeks ago, I built an MVP for a similar concept: BlockBounty.io. The acceptance of the community was great and I'm currently planning to work with a couple devs to build a fully functional platform.
Would you be up for a Skype call or a Slack chat?
Maybe we could work together at this.
