June 2019: ARK GitHub Development Bounty Program

in arkecosystem •  2 months ago 

The month of June is now over and we had a lot of great community
contributions. A big thank you goes out to our community developers who are
regularly helping us improve our codebase and who make the ARK community the
best in the industry!

We remain sincerely grateful for those who contribute on a regular basis and are
excited to see several new faces this month — shout out to the new developers
joining our program (first contributions): lemii, jdar, kylelobo and
dileepajayakody. Be sure to spread the word about our bounty program to help
us get more developers involved and contributing to the ARK Ecosystem.

We have several open issues that have fixed bounties assigned to them (we call
these Tier 0 and Tier 1 projects). You can see the list below and choose one to
tackle by requesting to be assigned to it on GitHub. In the upcoming weeks you
can expect much more of the predefined Tier 0 and Tier 1 tasks as we refine this
process, along with more Desktop Wallet related Tier 0 projects. We will list
them in their respective repositories along with posting them here monthly.

Special Contributions

alessiodf— $150 USD

Alessio reported a potential problem which can cause inconveniences for end
users where the transaction pool rejects transactions that are older than 6
hours or from the future. But this does not apply when the pool is bypassed
allowing forgers to selectively forge expired transactions. This will no longer
be fundamentally possible in Core v2.5 as blocks with expired or future
transactions are discarded on the protocol-level.

Are there any other development bounties going on?
