January 2018: GitHub Development Winners

The first monthly Github bounty program of the year has completed. The new year brings new commits and new developers onto the ARK. We’d like to give a huge round of applause to all who keep providing new improvements, features and bug fixes to our Ecosystem.

In 2018 we introduced new rules. One of them is that bounties will be pegged to USD value at the time of any payout, so you will be less prone to market swings. The next was that this program will be a PERMANENT bounty program, so you can get involved anytime you want, and it will run indefinitely.
