ARK GitHub Development Bounty Program — November 2019

The month of November is behind us along with the GitHub Development Bounty Program for it. It was a busy development month with a lot of community contributions, for that we want to thank everyone who participated. This program runs nonstop throughout the year, so it’s never too late to join in.

Recently we updated our bounty structure , where we have doubled the tier rewards and also added a bit of competition to the program. We are also running a special Core v2.6 bounty that can net you up to $100 just for reporting issues related to the upcoming Core release, to learn more *read this blog post.

Be sure to spread the word about our bounty program to help us get more developers involved and contributing to the ARK Ecosystem, not only improving the codebase but also giving developers a way to learn and earn.

Don’t know what this is about and want to get involved?

Please have a read at https://ark.io/bounties and also look at other bigger Tier 0 projects at https://ark.io/projects .

Now without further ado, here are the participants and contributors of the November 2019 GitHub development bounty program!
