Commiteth

Commiteth aims to incentivise development on open source projects hosted on Github.

How does it work?

Commiteth fosters open source development by incentivising pull request submissions by attaching a ETH or ERC20 cryptotoken bounty to open issues.

A project maintainer must first add their project to Commiteth, and include their address (this address & Commiteth's address will be the two signatories on the multisig wallet).

Once done, Commiteth will list the project and crawl it's Github Issues with the label bounty. When found Commiteth will deploy a Multisig wallet to the network with itself and project maintainer as signatories.

Commiteth will then generate an image containing the address, a QR code of the address and the balance of the wallet and comment on the issue. (as well as this information in plaintext). Commiteth will update this comment with a new image everytime the balance has changed and when the bounty is complete.

An example bounty image

Commiteth observes the repository for pull requests that contain a reference to the bounty issue by the use of the Github special "fixes #6" feature. Read more about Closing Issues via Pull Requests here.

When this pull requests are accepted and merged, Commiteth will sign a transaction in the associated wallet and display it to the maintainer as a pending transaction to sign.

The maintainer must load commiteth.com in Mist or Metamask to complete the transaction.

How do I use it?

First you must sign-in to Commiteth via a Github login. Then you must submit your receiving address.

Once done you are ready to submit pull requests for issues with the bounty tag.

If your pull request is accepted, Commiteth will sign the bounty balance to you, however you must wait until the maintainer confirms the transaction.
