Proposal: BanklessDAO Bounty Board

Project: BanklessDAO Bounty Board

Champion: Icedcool

Date: November 1st, 2021



The bounty board is working to be a major infrastructural component of DAO’s and BanklessDAO, supporting and enabling the coordination of explicit work to labor in an efficient and automated way that allows DAO groups, members and guilds to set work requests in the form of bounties.

We see this functionality expanding to be the HR layer of DAOs, enabling role and project based payment over time, and other functions.

We are working towards the next versions of the Bounty board, while engaging interested parties, collecting feedback and fleshing out front end capabilities.

Revenue Model:

BanklessDAO Bounty Board will start to engage investors into the later half of Season 2. We are planning to flesh out our funding model and are planning to act in accordance with the larger DAO orientation towards project investment.

  • Revenue Model 1 - Accrual to BANK
    • In this model, all investment would move to the BanklessDAO Treasury to back BANK.
  • Revenue Model 2 - Percentage split
    • In this model, investment would be split between the project and the DAO.
      • 80/20 Split - 80% to project, 20% to DAO
        • This would enable the project to pay members primarily through the investment.
      • 50/50 Split - 50% to Project, 50% to DAO
        • This would enable the project to pay members partially through investment and partially through BANK tokens.


Compensation for:

  • Work being done and to be done.

Work to be done:

BB has oriented towards role based compensation as follows:

Positions and payment

Bounty pool justification:

The Bounty Board project is onboarding devs by giving them bounties to assess their fit on the team, the quality of the work and commitment, and subsequently creating a role for them.

Bank Requested: 1,021,000

Excellent work on BB and the proposal. I would like to see a “pitch” phase added between create and claim so creators have a variable length pitching phase.


At Coordinape we have been looking at using:
Postgres + Hasura +
For a backend rewrite

I’m anticipating that the iteration speed will be awesome

Thank you!
I’ll message you on the ‘pitch’ phase idea.

Fully support. This project is a game changer and I am looking forward to seeing its use expand. The DGEN x DAO Dash integration will be :fire: BanklessDAO is taking over!
