These are typically ideas for new applications/tools that build on top of the core Balancer protocol or data (think of Coppers Fair Launch UI). These ideas are sourced from the community so are already something that people want and will use.
Well specified issues/feature requests which are a good candidates for external contribution. These Bounties can be good for individual contributors and can be a great way to get to know the Balancer protocol in more detail. Also Balancer is always on the look out for great developers and completing Bounties are a great way to demonstrate your skills while getting paid!
- Pick a task you find interesting and make sure you have a good idea of how to approach it. Feel free to ask questions in the Balancer Discord, #dev channel if required.
- Fill out this form and in Step 3 mention you're applying for an RFP/Bounty along with the title of the task.
- In Step 5 add the estimated expense for you to complete the task, normally the full amount won't be paid until completion so make this as accurate as possible.
- Once you submitted the form a member of the Grants Committee will be in touch to follow up the next steps which normally involved a call with a Committee member to discuss the project.
- Thanks for applying!
