Thank you to everyone trying out the bounties.
Bounties are a way to reward your readers to comment on your post, whether you are running a contest, want a question answered or are just want encourage more interaction. You can simply send any amount to @steem-bounty with a post url in the memo and after the payout of the post, the bounty will be distributed to everyone that put up a comment and received upvotes. Of course the amount of votes matters and the sender has 80% of the voting weight.
If you are new to the concept check out how bounties work here with this link . There are tutorials in various languages.
News about this report
We have launched a new version of steem-bounty. The data is stored in a new database that will allow us better to have the bounties shown via a web-ui. The existing bounties will still be paid out as before and all the new bounties will be picked up by the new functionality.
As a result for the next 7 days the bounties will be in two different data sets so this report will also be contain two lists.
We are currently trying to update this report every other day. Given that bounties run 7 days mostly this should be a good frequency and balance between spam and giving everyone a chance to participate in each bounty.
Minimum bounty size we will include in this report to 0.1 STEEM or SBD. There may be many bounties cheaper than this, however in the interest of spam avoidance we decided to exclude them from this list here.
New bounties come currently with a 1% fee. We do this to test if our fee system is working and may switch this on and off during the beta. We hope the 1% is small enough for no-one to care if it is on or off.
We are making good process with the website. We expect to have a beta version out within 3-4 weeks.
- Over 500 bounties have been created. We are delighted that so many people have used it. In our next version we will be able to give more detailed stats as well.
Check this report to find bounty-post
Since there is no easy way to search for bounty posts, we will create these lists of bounties on a regular basis, so make sure to follow the @steem-bounty account. When our website is ready this will much better.
Some posters use the "bounty" and "steem-bounty" tag, so you can look for those as well. If you create a post an plan to use a bounty, make sure to add a bounty tag and ideally announce in your post or via the headline that you are providing a bounty.
Remember in order to qualify for a bounty reward you must write a comment to the bounty post, which needs to be a top level comment (direct response to the post).

Newer Bounties 5-7 or later
