I have been going through the ApeCoin Dao and come across various bugs and problems with the tools. Right now I have put up AIPs to fix them, but I think a bug finding program should be a formal program outside of the ThankApe tool which is more automated.
There should be an allocation of ApeCoin. It could be reviewed by the Stewards and/or Ape Assembly.
The rewards should be significant so people care to find these problems which will improve the overall quality and reputation of the ApeCoin Dao.
The reward bounties should be worthwhile and it is much cheaper than having people hired to do this. I think the rewards should be in the 500-2000 ApeCoin range if the bug is deemed important enough to fix by the community.
Some are straight out errors which need to be fixed asap:
Some are suggestions/improvements such as:
I have added another bug in the comments below, which I am not putting up as a separate AIP for now.
I agree that having a formal program to identify and fix bugs would greatly improve the overall quality and reputation of our community. This approach can be cost effective compared to hiring individuals specifically for this purpose.
I’m totally on board with this bug finding rewards program for the ApeCoin DAO! It’s awesome that you’ve already spotted some bugs and issues in the tools, and I totally agree that we need a more formal and incentivized approach to tackle them. By allocating ApeCoin rewards, we can make sure people really care about finding and fixing these problems, which will boost the overall quality and reputation of the DAO. Plus, it’s way more cost-effective than hiring dedicated bug hunters.
I remember Yat mentioning this for other AIPs approved by the DAO that introduced risk in a way similar to the staking proposal – which is different than what you’re proposing correct?
If you’re speaking about DAO specific bugs that aren’t AIP-related have you considered utilizing Thank Ape? This seems like a perfect way to reward meaningful contributions to the DAO that is already approved and looking to distribute $APE.
If you are speaking about AIP-related bugs, make sure to check out @zheerwagen’s proposal.
Thank you for your ideas [and the ApeCoin DAO community for the thoughtful discussions]. A moderator will get in touch with the author to draft the AIP in the appropriate template. Once the AIP is drafted and meets all the DAO-approved guidelines, the proposal will be posted on Snapshot for live official voting at: Snapshot
