Busy.org is a non-profit organization that subsists on sponsorship and donations.
(Check our announcement)
Everything has been achieved through the hard work, dedication and commitment of our two founders, who decided to work for free until the Beta release. But nothing would have been possible without our Donors.
Donations allowed us to recruit and build a strong team, having the ability to plan ahead with a medium-term vision in order to constantly adapt and rationalize our production, with consistent deadlines. That’s how we plan to release our public Beta, and Minimum Viable Product in February 2017.
The received funds are redirected into a development fund that helps Busy to achieve its roadmap, bootstrap new features/services and cover expenses.
It’s allowing us to apply our policy to pay any valuable contribution, and we have rewarded every member that did work for the Busy Project (except the founders, so more funds could directly be allocated to the develop the MVP).
Short list of Busy selected contributors who received a reward for their inputs:
Busy primary expenses:
- Developers/Contributors (Core team + extras)
- G Suite
We support the blockchain incentive proposal to reward third-party apps
Busy supports this proposed upgrade for the blockchain which we believe would definitely help third-party apps like us to adopt a specified model to cover our expenses. It will also probably allow users to support our projects using a small % of their post rewards as a donation.
In the meantime, Busy development relies on direct donations and our team will forever be extremely grateful to our donors.
To enhance and highlight our supporters, we have defined the Busy Donations Terms, introducing: 5 Donation Levels.
Busy Donor Badge & more to come
Based on your Donor rank/level, you will receive several “rewards” including a Busy Donor Badge on your Busy profile.
Other ideas that we can implement to gratefully acknowledge our donors will be announced in the coming weeks. We are open to any inputs. All suggestions are welcome !
