Bounti is a bounty board as a service to help products tap into their community for one-off content from their products Most Wanted List.
Bounti is a Core Product of the Lonch Platform
Bounti will be a viable standalone product, while also providing a central service to provide a bounty board to the Lonch platform.
Lonch creates Core Products to be used by CrowdFounded product teams “free of charge” in exchange shares in royalties generated by the product. Through these Core Products Lonch provides tools to help CrowdFounded products succeed and assumes the upfront risk in the event that those CrowdFounded products do not succeed, to remove the upfront financial burden from the CrowdFounding product team.
By contributing to this Core Product you are helping to bootstrap the Lonch Platform.
Tap into your community
Who knows the desires of your community better than the community itself? Tap into your community’s talents to complete items from your product’s bounty list.
Facilitate anyone to contribute to complete a self contained task without the overhead of a continued comittment.
Once content has been completed and submitted, verify the results yourself or use our intermediary service to triage work to ensure it meets the expected quality before final approval from your team.
Once work has been approved then the contributor is compensated for their effort. This could be in tokens, cryptocurrency, money transfer, or product credit.
There are no known competitors of services in this space.
The closest are remote work and freelancer services such as Freelancer, Upwork, Bounty Source, Fiverr. However these all source external developers for pay and do not tap the existing community around the product. This need is a common occurrence among open source software.
Why Create This Solution?
This market is a largely untapped blue ocean, we have a need and we think others do to.
Below is the overall progress for the first v1.0 release which focuses on a Minimum Viable Product (MVP)
Milestone: Develop Spec
|Plan Cloud Architecture around microservices and FaaS|
Develop Spec, Milestones and Roadmap
|Product developers are willing to relinquish some control to tap directly into their community to create new features or content||The service does not have a market and will go unused.||
We are leveraging Bounti on the Lonch platform as one angle to bootstrap the product ecosystem.
Since this is a Core Product it will still be adding value to products that use the Lonch Platform to develop their products.
Join the Bounti Team
By joining this product you are helping to bootstrap the Lonch Platform. You will also receive royalties for sales that run through the Bounti service. Royalties come from a la carte sales to businesses which use Bounti, and a portion of royalties from the future success of the Lonch Platform is fed back into the Core Products that make up the platform.
We want contributors who are dedicated to the product and the Lonch Platform as a whole, but we understand that people’s priorities and lives can change. Because of that we only require a short term commitment. When you’re ready to move on to other product teams or ventures you are free to do so, knowing that your royalties will continue to be paid to you even after you have left.
Contributors make their own schedules, work wherever they want, and must provide their own equipment (computer, hardware, software, services).
Current Open Positions
Products on the Lonch platform are 100% based on contributions from contributors. It is possible for a single contributor to “wear multiple hats” and contribute across multiple role expectations below. We look to provide skill coverage among the listed expectations. Since this is a different way to think about work, and to make it easier to digest, we are listing individual roles in the traditional business model. We fully expect individuals to provide partial overlap for many of these expectations. As this product and platform matures we will likely list skill sets as opposed to antiquated roles.
