Coming to Mozfest in London?
Please stop by our demo of
Trading futures, fixing bugs: a live Smart Contracts installation.
What is it?
Bugmark is a market that connects people who want better software to the people who can build it.
In order to make open collabration more effective, we are using simple market mechanisms to add incentives to do useful work.
Bugmark allows you to
Put financial value directly in the hands of the people who can fix the software issues that are most important to you.
Discover which issues really matter to your project's users.
Work with open source practices and not against them.
Solve part of a problem and still get paid, instead of contending to claim credit for a bounty payment.
Find an issue, fix it, and earn money
Vist Bugmark to find an open issue that matches your skills and interests. Buy a futures contract connected to that issue that will pay you when the issue is fixed. Work on the issue, in the open—then decide if you want to hold your contract until maturity, or sell it at a profit.
Report an issue and pay to reward others to fix it
Create a new issue on the project bug tracker, or select an existing one. Buy a futures contract on that issue that will cost you a known amount when the issue is fixed, or pay you to compensate you if the issue goes unfixed. Reduce your exposure to software risks by directly signaling the project participants about what issues are important to you.
Invest in futures on an open source market
Development isn't the only task required to make a software project a success. You can trade futures to earn a profit from other vital tasks, such as clarifying and translating bug reports, triaging bugs, writing failing tests, or doing code reviews.
