ARK GitHub Development Bounty Program — September 2019

September’s GitHub Bounty Program results are in! In this post, we will review the month’s winners, pull requests and work done by the community.

Recently we updated our bounty structure, where we have doubled the tier rewards and also added a bit of competition to the program.

Thanks to all of the developers for their continued contributions! Be sure to spread the word about our bounty program to help us get more developers involved and contributing to the ARK Ecosystem, not only improving the codebase but also giving developers a way to learn and earn.
