[SCP TBD] - Additional Bounties for IBC integrations - Ideation Thread

ShapeShift has an opportunity to provide a delightful user experience for all Tendermint/Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) chains.

With the work near completed on the Osmosis integration, staking (including re-delegation), send and receive integration for additional IBC chains should be a reasonable engineering lift.

Trading of additional IBC tokens should be enabled on Osmosis soon, so additional trading functionality is not required for this bounty.

I do not think these efforts should detract from the core engineering roadmap, so I am proposing a FOX bounty to integrate additional IBC chains outside of the regular engineering roadmap. This could be a good funnel to attract new engineers to the ShapeShift DAO via Dework or via other methods.

Priority should be higher for chains that already have a ShapeShift DAO Validator: Juno, UMEE, Terra.

ShapeShift can work with these other IBC communities to try to sponsor matching or similar bounties from their governance process or community funds.

I would like to see an additional, bonus bounty for a GitHub template, notion page or medium article for how to add new IBC chains to unchained and the ShapeShift web app to help outside developers integrate future IBC chains.

The poll below has 3 tiers of bounty for each IBC chain.

  • 10,000 FOX per IBC Chain integrated ($700 @ $0.07 FOX)
  • 50,000 FOX per IBC Chain integrated ($1,400 @ $0.07 FOX)
  • 100,000 FOX per IBC Chain integrated ($7,000 @ $0.07 FOX)
  • 200,000 FOX per IBC Chain integrated ($14,000 @ $0.07 FOX)

love this idea @Marley, especially coupled with matching bounties from the respective communities. I bet Cosmos would be happy to help us promote this too.

would it be up to product workstream to decide which chains beyond the first 3 to prioritize as well as how many total bounties to offer? or how do you envision that working?

Iā€™m curious what @0xdef1cafe thinks a reasonable bounty amount would be as well as whether docs can/should be bountied or should be done in house.

looking forward to integrating all the zones! :rocket:
