in arkecosystem •  15 days ago 

August’s GitHub Bounty Program has concluded. In this post, we will go over the month's winners. Remember, the Bounties for September are already up and running so be sure to get involved if you haven’t yet!

Recently we updated our bounty structure, where we have doubled the tier rewards and also added a bit of competition to the program.

We are very grateful for those who contribute on a regular basis and are always excited to see new faces. Be sure to spread the word about our bounty program to help us get more developers involved and contributing to the ARK Ecosystem, not only improving the codebase but also giving developers a way to learn and earn.

Don’t know what this is about and want to get involved?
