Thank you to everyone trying out the bounties.
Bounties are a way to reward your readers to comment on your post, whether you are running a contest, want a question answered or are just want encourage more interaction.
Bounties are also a way to be rewarded for answering question, doing research or providing work or simply to share your opinion and interact with a post.
To create one you simply send any amount to @steem-bounty with a post url in the memo and after the payout of the post, the bounty will be distributed to everyone that put up a comment and received upvotes. Of course the amount of votes matters and the sender has 80% of the voting weight.
If you are new to the concept check out how bounties work here with this link . There are tutorials in various languages.
Below is a screenshot of the biggest bounties right now:
News about this report
we have added the functionality that allows bounty creators to manage abusive comments by downvoting. read more here
we have added a blacklist. Read more here.
After some more UI optimizations we are getting close with the website. Hopefully a beta version will be ready for testing by next week. Here is a sneak peek..
please report any abuse in the telegram channel
Minimum bounty size we will include in this report to 0.1 STEEM or SBD. There may be many bounties cheaper than this, however in the interest of spam avoidance we decided to exclude them from this list here.
New bounties come currently with a 1% fee. We do this to test if our fee system is working and may switch this on and off during the beta. We hope the 1% is small enough for no-one to care if it is on or off.
Currently the below screenshot from the new UI shows you how many bounties are active and their value:
If you see anyone abusing the bounty system in any way, please let us know in the telegram channel. This has not happen much but we are happy to deal with it and the fast way for us to react will be via telegram.

Since there is no easy way to search for bounty posts, we will create these lists of bounties on a regular basis, so make sure to follow the @steem-bounty account. When our website is ready this will much better.
Some posters use the "bounty" and "steem-bounty" tag, so you can look for those as well. If you create a post an plan to use a bounty, make sure to add a bounty tag and ideally announce in your post or via the headline that you are providing a bounty.
Remember in order to qualify for a bounty reward you must write a comment to the bounty post, which needs to be a top level comment (direct response to the post).
