open source. It is a critical part of our mission to build a community-owned, free to use, interface into the defi universe. In order for us to realize this mission we need contributors like yourself to come along on this journey. Bounties are a great way to get involved in our growing community of open-source developers.
The Shapeshift DAO has many flavors of bounties, but most of our engineering bounties are small features, improvements or bug fixes that can be made in a single Pull Request by a contributor. These bounties are attached to issues in GitHub, and we use Gitcoin as an incentivization layer. This mean's that contributors are rewarded in FOX, our governance token, and become owners of the very platform they are helping to build.
Ready to dive in? Awesome here are some helpful links to find an issue to pick up:
We are at the start of building out more resources for contributors. If you are unable to find what you need please feel free to ask questions in our #engineering-public Discord channel. If it's over the weekend it may take us a bit to respond, but we will get to your question. If you ask a question and get a good answer consider adding it to the FAQs here.
Additionally, feel free to attend Engineering Stand-up at 1:15PM MST Monday through Thursday in Discord #Standup-AllAccess. You can introduce yourself, and we can often find someone to pair up with you if you need assistance for a few minutes after the meeting.
Projects are welcome and encouraged to offer bounties to get their feature integrated by the large and growing community of ShapeShift developers. The product and engineering workstreams have processes and resources defined to provide guidance, support, and code and UX reviews to any individuals or teams who take on a bounty.
