Steemit and Github, a match made in heaven?

5년 전

steemit-github

After reading this blog by @kencode the realization hit me right in the face. The concept of rewarding users via Steem and the Github issue tracker would match just perfectly.

While I don't believe we generally need a monetization system for Github contributions, since we normally don't do this for money but more out of interest and pleasure, a system where people are rewarded for reporting bugs and feature requests could be a flat out open source revolution.

Reward projects for humanity

Imagine a future, where public communities reward developers for working on social projects. But the good part of this is, this is not limited to developers. Generally everybody involved in such a project can be rewarded. We've seen writers on Steemit getting huge amounts of steam for their FAQs, designs or even just plain constructive criticism.

A lot of companies could have a huge incentive to be early adopters of Steem and give back to their costumers or volunteers who enjoy to help out.

Let's make this world a better place, Steem by Steem!

I think the important point that you identify here is that people can be rewarded for reporting bugs and feature requests...

Automate a bounty flow from Steemit to Github back through Steem again and we have a big winner on our hands.

Big upvote.

I see a huge opportunity here.
Steem could finally achieve what bitcoin tips never did - wide adoption.
And it's already happening, since we see people use Steemit in this way, without the platform being generally "ready" for it yet.

In addition to bug reports, publishing the README.md file here can be very rewarding:

As Steem's monitization model evolves we will see if it can be mimicked in a bug-fix monitization strategy. I think the idea is great and could really help open source projects in the future. The storage of all of the code is really one of the harder problems to solve.

I also thought about Steem + Github. Here is my post.
