Hi bounty hunters,

After having a bad experience with Nucleus Vision's bounty not delivering what they promised (reducing the number of tokens by 2 to 5 times per pool with no reason or explanation as they raised their hard cap, see the last comments in its official bounty thread as proof), I had an idea.

Sure, bounties and investing in ICOs are among the most high risk activities in the crypto world where you can easily get scammed or fall for deceitful promises, often without consequences for those who do it.

I am a firm believer in bounties. Right now, it's an "ugly baby" and the wild wild west but I believe bounties can become a part of the future of work where everyone has a chance to participate and earn some side cash or even make a living in a decentralized economy.

What do you do if you participate in a bounty and you get scammed or don't get the reward you were promised?

So far, I have had a great experience with most bounties but sooner or later, we will all get a bad one. And it's probably best to move on and forget about it but looking at the bigger picture, this is bad for the whole ecosystem.

There already are platforms for bounties but so far this forum is the best source for these and I think we should all play our part and self-police these in a way, on top of the work of admins.

Can we have a bounty for deceitful and scammy bounties that don't pay or don't deliver what they promise after we've helped them raise their hard cap?

It seems logical and I am down for being a part of this, crowdsourcing solutions on how to punish the cheaters and scammers and protect other bounty hunters from helping bad ICOs and bad bounties.
