* Title: Bug Bounty * Name: bugBounty * Term: 12 * Total Amnt: 1,000,000 * Author: Nohbdy45645 * Receiver: To Be Determined * Address: not yet created * Created: July 28 2020 * Status: Draft
I think a formalized process for rewarding community members for finding bugs would be a good idea that would encourage people to actively seek out and report bugs. I would propose that devs be excluded from being able to claim a bug bounty. Maybe include other DAO members in that exclusion. I think this should be something exclusively available to the average user/community member.
I would propose that the amounts of awards be decided by a majority vote of a committee depending on the severity of the bug (a bug found in an area that changes something essential should get more than a cosmetic bug). The amounts could range between maybe 5,000DVT to 100,000DVT.
I would suggest that the proposal require renewal in one year and if it is renewed remaining funds would be re-rolled into the bug fund with the possibility of a top-up to be discussed at that time. If it is not renewed any unused funds would go back to the project fund.
I think it might help to have a more formalized and funded process rather than donations from individuals.
I hope this gets a bit of discussion going.
