Community Incentives to Answer Questions & Resolve Issues


A new proposal to allocate 350,000 HBOT tokens to fund the Community Incentives for community members to help one another in answering questions, and to encourage sharing of knowledge, skills, & experiences.

Incentives to Answer Questions & Resolve Issues

Since the beginning of the Hummingbot Foundation, we have assigned Community Managers and Lead Developers to answer questions and assist community members in resolving issues. We’ve noticed a gradual increase in the number of members who can answer general questions and know where to find answers via documentation over the last few months. We believed that encouraging community members to assist one another would increase community engagement and encourage more members to openly share their knowledge, skills, and experiences.

The Foundation Team, on the other hand, can concentrate on other priorities such as documentation, improving processes and governance activities, sharing blog posts, codebase improvements, providing mini-lessons, and hosting Hummingbot botcamps.

Following this event, we will conduct post-evaluation activities such as collecting feedback and suggestions and conducting a survey poll. These will assist us in determining the next steps to take and improving the incentives in Epoch 3 early next year.
