I run a MyBB based discussion forum and I want to give users additional incentive to post and discuss within our forum. Bitcoin and cryptocurrency as a whole seems to fit this model perfectly as it allows us to give users very small increments of a dollar. Frankly I lack the technical skills to develop something of this sort and I would like to try and have it as airtight as possible in regards to not running the risk of theft. I am looking to hire someone for this project and they will be free to distribute/sell their software once it is installed on my forum, there is no exclusivity agreement.

To prevent spambots and spam abuse there will be limits [which will have the option to be configured in the ACP or file config] to how much people can earn in a day. So here is an example:

User Post Requirement: 25 Posts [Number of posts required to earn points.]
Daily Post Limit: 10 Posts [Number of posts a user can earn credit for daily.]
Bitcoin Reward Amount: .0001 [Just as it says on the can.]

I'm thinking that maybe storing a fictional amount of Bitcoin/points and then when a user initiates a withdraw [.01 minimum] I receive a PM with their requested withdraw address and I send out to Bitcoin manually.   


Interest in helping out with this project, input on methods and usability, or just general comments welcome.

I am not sure what you exactly need. So you basically want an "add-on" for your myBB forum to be able to reward authors? Can you maybe tell us a little bit more about your forum? What is it about? Can you share the URL?

The forum is the one in my signature, here is a link: https://uglounge.com/
Essentially, yes. That is what I'm looking for. The forum was a general conversation forum but stagnated and is now in the process of being reborn.
