There's no official bounty program to "join," but there are tons of things that will get you bounties. If you are doing things that have a positive benefit to the community bounties are given. Finding bugs in anything, helping community members, helping with testnet, translation services, really anything that helps everyone and moves the project forward will get you a bounty. We'll sometimes offer bounties for a specific task and put an announcement out to everyone. We will also reward initiative that supports Mochimo (like an entry on the wiki or a well written Medium article) depending on the quality and time invested.
First, congrats that you received bounties!
Next, for regulatory compliance, a AML/KYC check is required before the bounties can be sent along.
The process is as follows:
Send a message from your preferred email account to twalters[at]mochimo.org to begin the KYC process (or DM @TechHobo on Discord). This is the address you will use to complete an AML/KYC (identity) check and any bounty-related emails. The MCM team does not have access to any documents you provide - this check is performed by a trusted third party provider.
If you do not wish to complete the identity check, please notify us. This is required by US regulations, so failure to complete will likely result in forfeiture of your bounty.
Send your wallet tag to kashmyr[at]mochimo.org - this must be sent from the same email address used for KYC. Otherwise, once your check is complete, you will receive an email request for your wallet tag. If you would like us to save this tag for future bounty payouts, please let us know.
We'll pay out your sweet, sweet bounty and send a confirmation email.
Expiration of Bounties
Effective as of June 25, 2019, all bounties awarded are valid and payable for 6 months (180 calendar days) from the date of award. We still have many users that need to complete KYC to get their payouts. Long term it's undesirable to have have coins in limbo and we want to get them to their owners quickly and effeciently. Thus, moving forward ALL bounties expire if not collected within the specified window. If you need a KYC invite link or assistance completing KYC, please DM @TechHobo on Discord or email him at twalters[at]mochimo.org.
