• What we'll do
Bugmark is an experimental futures market for software issues. Bugmark differs from traditional job-matching systems in that it uses market-generated price signals to direct resources to areas of highest value. The market trades both software fixes and vulnerability disclosures with a single instrument. Trades are recorded on the blockchain, and transactions can be conducted in digital or fiat currency. For Linux sponsors and community members, Bugmark is a simple, streamlined way to incentivize open-source development. For Linux Developers, Bugmark gives a new way to earn income. Bugmark is a new project supported by Mozilla, and we are looking for additional early adopter sponsors in the Linux community.
Andrew Leak is the lead developer on Bugmark, a futures market for software issues. Andrew works as a contract software developer, has long history in Silicon Valley at large enterprise and small startups, and has been a desktop XFCE user for the past 10 years.
