Zilliqa Bounty Program
Zilliqa is a new high-throughput blockchain platform that is designed to scale in an open, permissionless distributed network securely. In the most recent experiments, the Zilliqa private testnet network recorded a peak throughput of 2,488 transactions with 3,600 nodes. The underlying technology that makes Zilliqa scale is that of sharding — — dividing the mining network into smaller groups called shards, each capable of processing transactions in parallel. In fact, the throughput in Zilliqa increases as the network expands which makes Zilliqa truly scalable. Zilliqa has been featured in esteemed news outlets like CNBC, Cointelegraph, BlockchainNews, IBT, The Merkle, Digital Journal, etc.
Why are we running the bounty program?
We would like to foster a community of crypto enthusiasts, system engineers, application developers, researchers, thinkers, writers and other collaborators around Zilliqa for its future development and adoption. To show appreciation to our early supporters and facilitate our community building, we are pleased to launch a bounty program. We are committed to building a strong and active community and your help is critical in achieving this.
NOTE: We reserve the right to disqualify or withhold bounty payouts to any user we suspect of attempting to cheat or exploit any of the rules written below. We also have zero tolerance for spam, cheating, or abuse.
How does it work?
The bounty program will run for 4 weeks, starting from 4 Nov 2017 till 1 Dec 2017 (GMT+8). To ensure transparency, we will maintain a points table and make it available to the community for scrutiny. At the end of each week during the program, we will update the points table for members to keep track of their achievements and help resolve contentious issues in a timely manner. Bounty will be distributed to participants after Zilliqa’s Token Generation Event.
Community members will be awarded with a bounty based on achieving particular goals and these may be increased if certain milestones are hit. The bounty will be awarded in ZILs (or interim ERC-20 tokens). We categorize contributions from the community into 2 categories as detailed below and also have a special award for active supporters.
1) Community Creativity — Allocated bounty up to USD 20,000 (equivalent ZILs)
IMPORTANT: We will also increase our allocated bounty for this category by 50% to USD 30,000 (equiv. ZILs) if we hit the target in the Social Networks category.
Content Creation: The Zilliqa team seeks bloggers, journalists, and content creators (video or podcast) willing to write about the Zilliqa platform and the underlying technology. We regularly update our blog (blog.zilliqa.com), website (www.zilliqa.com), Slack channel (https://zilliqa.slack.com) and YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvinnFbf0u71cajoxKcfZIQ). These resources can be used as inspiration for content. If you are interested in creating HIGH-QUALITY blog or video content or providing media coverage, please join this program. If we approve your content proposal, it must be created in a timely fashion and distributed widely across your social networks and platforms. Content must be unique and original.
Referrals: Bounties will be distributed to those who link us to Medium bloggers, steemit.com users and other content creators and get them to share more on Zilliqa.
Translation: We are looking for a few high quality translators who are willing to translate our announcement threads, whitepaper and other documents, as well as blog posts into other languages. We will not be accepting translation to Japanese and Simplified Chinese.

We target to have:

** 5,000 Telegram members
IMPORTANT: If we reach the above social media goals, we will increase our allocated bounty by 50% to USD 30,000 (equiv. ZILs).
Members will be rewarded with points based on their interaction with our social media platforms. To join this program, please register accounts below and submit the following form: https://bit.do/zilliqasocialbounty. For further enquiries, please contact the admins on Telegram @zilliqachat.
The points are given on an all-or-nothing basis, i.e., if a member achieves the target, then he/she gets the total points else he/she gets 0. The bounty in this category will be awarded proportionally to the number of points accumulated by an individual.

No cheating by re-joining or asking someone to leave so that you can invite them. If you do so, all points tagged to your eth address will be forfeited. In order to invite someone, you cannot just send the invite link. You have to use the “Add Member” function on the Zilliqa Official Telegram chat. Due to Telegram restrictions, only people who have usernames and are in your contacts can be added.
NOTE: 1/4 of the allocated bounty amount will either expire or be given to participants at the end of each week (according to GMT+8). For example, if we have 0 participants in the first week, 1 in the second and 5 in the third and 10 in the fourth, no bounty will be given at the end of first week and the total bounty will reduce to 15,000. The only participant at the end of second week will get the entire weekly quota of 5,000. For the third week, assuming each of the 5 participants accumulates the same number of points, then each will be given 5,000/5 USD (equiv ZILs).
