About the Bounties category and How to Apply

About the Bounties Category

The “Bounties” Category regroups, as titled, several bounties.

For now, a bounty can only be created by admins/mods. This is subject to change.

How To Apply

You can apply to a bounty by answering on the bounty message.

We encourage you to use the following template (taken from ZF Grants - Guide), you are not required to use it, but your proposal should provide equivalent information.


Summarize the qualifications that you and/or your team bring to the table. Show that you have the skills and expertise necessary for the project that you’re proposing. (Institutional bona fides are not required, but we do want to hear about your track record!)

Technical Approach

Dive into the how of your project. Describe your approaches, components, workflows, methodology, etc. Bullet points and diagrams are appreciated!

Execution Risks

What obstacles do you expect? What is most likely to go wrong? Which unknown factors or dependencies could jeopardize success? What are your contingency plans? Will subsequent activities be required to maximize impact?


What are the negative ramifications if your project is successful? Consider usability, stability, privacy, integrity, availability, decentralization, interoperability, maintainability, technical debt, requisite education, etc.

Evaluation Plan

What will your project look like if successful? How will we be able to tell? Include quantifiable metrics if possible.


What is your expected timeline for the project? List the concrete milestones and major tasks required to complete each milestone.

Next Steps

Your application will be evaluated at the next Governance meeting and a decision will be taken similarly to a funding request. Please allow at least 10 days for people to review your application.
