April 2019: ARK GitHub Development Bounty Program

The April development bounty program is over. A huge thanks goes out to our talented community developers who are continuously improving our codebase, and we welcome all of the new ones just joining!

We remain deeply thankful for those who contribute on a regular basis and are always thrilled to see new faces. Be sure to spread the word about our bounty program to help get more involved in the development of the ARK Ecosystem.

Don’t know what this is about and want to get involved? Please have a read at : https://bounty.ark.io

We have several issues that have fixed bounties assigned to them (tier 0 and tier 1). You can see the list here 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.

Tier 0 Open Projects

Tier 1 Open Projects

Special Contributions & Rewards


Delegate ‘Fun’ reported an issue where you could mistakenly (or intentionally) send coins to address that is not part of the current network (e.g. to BTC address, it would confirm transaction, but those coins would be lost since Ark’s prefix starts with ‘A’). This has been resolved by updating AJV validation schema for address to check that the address is on current network and in effect rejecting transactions that don’t follow current validation schema.

Are there any other development bounties going on?

Yes! There is also the community run ACF (ARK Community Fund) — read more here:
