We’ve just announced $34,000 in developer bounties! For all the DeFi entrepreneurs, JavaScript community, and native crypto developers, join us in building important pieces of infrastructure including a StableSwap-style curve for Agoric’s AMM (Automated Market Maker), to port the core Chainlink aggregation contract functions to Agoric codebases, and to launch a pool-based loan protocol.

We see the bounties as incentivized entry points to the DeFi realm for JavaScript developers, much like our ongoing incentivized testnet. Our Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain and JavaScript-native smart contract platform offers developers and enterprises a secure, reliable, and interoperable ecosystem for deploying and managing DeFi applications. Our composable smart contract development environment provides reusable governance, lending, and trading components to propel the creators of the multi-chain DeFi economy.

Dean Tribble, Agoric CEO and Co-Founder, said at the time of the announcement:

The first round of developer bounties is designed to build, educate, and reward the early community of Agoric developers who will scale the ecosystem for rapid development of DeFi. Whether you’re an experienced DeFi developer or just getting started, the developer bounties are an opportunity to get your hands on the financial primitives built on top of a Public Layer-1 PoS blockchain. We are giving the next generation of makers the DeFi legos to springboard their innovations and begin reaping the rewards of their labor. The scale of the DeFi opportunity is only starting to become clear and now is the perfect time to ramp up your participation on the Agoric network.
