What is the OriginTrail v6 launch Bounty program about?

We are incredibly excited to launch the official OriginTrail Bounty Program. With a pool of 250.000 $TRAC tokens, this bounty program will focus on accelerating the OriginTrail v6 launch, including battle-testing and improving the robustness of the upcoming version of the Decentralized Knowledge Graph and preparing it for billions of Web3 assets.

You can participate in the bounty program and contribute to OriginTrail v6 development in several ways, so if you are interested - read on!

What type of contributions are eligible for the bounty program?

There are two ways you can participate in the bounty program for OriginTrail v6 - via Github contributions, or testing the OriginTrail DKG v6 network by running a node with the Telemetry plugin.

Option 1 (open): Github contributions: starting from January 18 2022

We are super excited to get the tech community onboard with rewarding direct code contributions to OriginTrail Github! We will be considering 3 different contribution types:

  1. Contributing code: this means creating plugins, tools, components, resolving existing issues, creating valuable PoC integrations, contributing to the test-suite etc, by providing new code to existing repositories (listed below)

  2. Testing & reporting: such as documenting an (undiscovered) issue in detail & proposing solutions, providing improvement proposals for the APIs etc

  3. Documenting & clarifying: such as creating tutorials (confirmed as eligible by the core development team via Github issues), updating the documentation and non-code related content updates that are considered helpful

All Github contributions must follow the contribution guidelines in order to be eligible for the bounty program. Each contribution will have to pass the review process and only once merged to the respective codebase by the core developers will be considered for a bounty. If you are not sure that a certain contribution will qualify, either post the question in a Github issue or contact the developers via Discord.

* The list might be extended over the course of the bounty program

Option 2 (open): Telemetry submissions - Testing DKG v6 nodes and submitting telemetry data with the Telemetry plugin

To perform DKG v6 testing, you will need to run a v6 DKG testnet node (and later mainnet node) and install the Telemetry plugin, which will automatically publish node usage data to the DKG with a set frequency. Therefore, by using your node and the DKG, you will be effectively testing it and the node will record all this testing data in the background. Aggregating your usage data will be done by the Telemetry plugin on your node locally, and then submitted to the DKG itself.

To monitor the network usage data, we are introducing the Telemetry Hub, a live-metric dashboard implemented in Grafana, which will display aggregated data from all DKG v6 nodes submitting telemetry info for inspection by the developers and the community.

The telemetry data includes operational metrics such as the protocol operation duration, success rate and errors, then system performance, blockchain interactions etc. As the v6 node records all this information internally, as a community we will be aggregating all of this in the best way possible - by publishing it to the DKG itself.

Finally, the bounty program participants' contributions will be scored and ranked in a publicly visible scoring table.

As of March 9th 2022, Telemetry submissions are open and live for the bounty program.

How can you earn the bounty rewards?

For Github contributions (open):

  • Each contribution will be assessed individually by the core development team and ranked as “low”, “medium” or “high” impact based on contribution type, quality & impact

  • Assessment & distribution of rewards will be performed in cycles

  • Contributions that do not follow the contribution guidelines will not be considered for bounty

  • Github contributions are open from January 18 2022 until the end of the program

Telemetry contributions (open):
