I know, but I also know that this didn’t keep away the now nominated ambassadors to contribute.
My personal opinion is that incentives will allow to do more, but it also can attract a new type of contributors: soldiers who don’t really care about the project but more about the monetary incentives.
Time will show how intensive and different this will be.
Also people who miss incentives may believe it is a very simple task, by simply putting a bunch of ADA on the table.
But how much is the right incentive? 100, 1000, 1million?
Does the contributor live in world regions with relative high or low GDP and incomes? 1000 ADA in Europe for example very probably will not motivate that much people. In many places on Earth, it means more than anyone can ever achieve.
Some of us forum mods back in summer self-funded a contest for best contribution. No big amount of ADA, may for an average lunch. but we noticed a noticeable activity from all new registered users from a poor country. They all voted for one certain contribution.
I asked quite some people for their opinion and how to handle this in a fair and transparent way. Didn’t get noticeable feedback or good answers up to now.
I only see that complainers in almost 100% ask only for incentives in general, but never bring up questions like this.
Will a 1th world dude work for a few bucks?
Will one try to fake his location in order to collect more money?
How to handle this already now for eager community members until a treasury system is in place?
