OP have shared his insight very nicely but I feel its better to choose ICOs to support from their bounty programs carefully as hunters don't invest the money but their valuable times. Before joining any bounty campaign one must clear his basics we should not be money hungry to spam this awesome forum. I have seen peoples reporting their works after campaign has been ended continuously and even interacted with members who don't even know what is ICOs, Blockchain, Cryptocurrency etc. they just want the tokens.

Always try to get as much information as you can about the project, and a good way to start with that is by reading that sometimes boring but very usefull document called WHITEPAPER, as it contains most of the information about the project, like a roadmap and its timeline, you can see what lays ahead, but you should take a look aswell on the people behind it, the marketing made, all matters for you to make the right call and select the right project and their respective bounties.

Pay more attention to the bounties you are following that has hype because it will more likely mean money. Earn as much coin/token as you can until the end of the campaign. For hyped project, amount could easily double once it hits exchanges.

I think good bounty campaigns propose some managers: AmaZix, Tokensuite, BountyHive, CryptoServices bounty
Tokensuite has a lot of bounty scam accusations, it will never be a good idea in joining even one of their campaigns. The other 3 you've mentioned are great channels when you are searching for available bounties. I may add Bounty Guru as one of the most legible group in managing bounty campaigns.

Sometimes when deciding a good bounty campaign, I make sure that there are lots of participants in a specific type of bounties as this is one of the factor that the campaign is legit. Consider also the reputation of the campaign manager before diving in into his/ her bounty.

Being a bounty hunter is not an easy task. There are scams, failed projects everywhere. Bounty hunters has to be careful more than ever. As a bounty hunter myself I thought to share my experience with other bounty hunters in here. I will talk about my bounty experience and my opinion about certain bounty managers and certain bounty campaigns I got to work.

There are two very important things to consider when it comes to selecting a proper bounty campaign!

1)   Potential of the Project
2)   Bounty Manager


In this article I am going to focus on Potential of the Project and next article will be solely on bounty managers and my personal experience with them.

You are going to spend your time and money on this campaign, if it fails all the hard work you did is in vain. Therefore it is a must to do a proper background research on the ICO. There are few methods to get an idea about the project.

1) Referring an ICO Rating Site

You can refer to ICO rating websites as it is the most straightforward and easy way. These websites (Please refer to annex 1) rate the upcoming ICOs. But it may not 100% accurate, even the most experienced people do mistakes as well these sites too. And also many of these sites charge a fee to publish an ICO in there site. Money can slightly change the rating of a particular project.

My Experience #1 :
I started to participate in,
FTEC Bounty campaign (Bounty Thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3168899.0)
SkyFchain Bounty campaign (Bounty Thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2996537.0)
Inpactor Bounty campaign (Bounty Thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3286739.0 )
Eternal Trust Bounty campaign (Bounty Thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3137885 )

after observing their great ratings, (All three had given more than 4.5 out of 5 by the icobench.com). As all above three campaigns/ICOs are still ongoing I cannot say much about the reward yet. And as you can imagine I hope that these ICO rating sites are correct!

My Experience #2 :

After referring to ICObench.com I saw an ICO with 4.1 score out of 5 named,
Unibright (ICO site: https://unibright.io/ Bounty thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2994777.0)

The project team looked good, they even had a partnership with mighty Microsoft. I participated for 2 weeks and got 79 tokens! Oh wait, You need the value from US dollars? Last time I checked those 79 tokens worth $4.47 !!!

My Experience #3 :

I participated in a bounty campaign called

RootBlock Chain (Bounty Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3016577.0-root)

for 9 weeks there were no ratings about the project in recognized ICO rating sites. As days go by I was the second largest stakes holder in the bounty campaign according to the bounty spreadsheet. And guess what, they cancelled the bounty program day before yesterday (16/062018)! They announce that they are going to refund the investors and for bounty hunters, they get nothing but the total disappointment and agony!

2) Going through the project whitepaper and Team members

If you have the technical skills and time the best thing is to go through the project whitepaper and identify the project’s pros and cons, which will give you a proper overview. And the project members are pretty important too as the final outcome almost depends on their hands! Do a little background search about the core members and look for their achievements. Team is the strength of a project!

My Experience #4:

I joined a Facebook bounty campaign named

UCHIT (Bounty Thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3167782.0 )
 
and worked for more than 9 weeks. I did not check anything about their project nor team members. But it is revealed that all the photos of their team in the website (https://uchit.info/) [yes, I know their website looks pretty wonderful, but…]

This scam is revealed in here > https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4467813.5

3) Following a veteran

One of the very efficient way to find a great bounty campaign is this. I always gaze upon on that shiny badges and unbelievable merit count of those legendary members, hero members, Senior Members with amazement in my eyes! Then I look into their signature, if it represents an Altcoin ICO I do a quick research and find the bounty campaign and participate in it.

My Experience #5:

Recently I saw a legendary member with more than 1500 merits wearing a fancy signature said

Impressio (Bounty thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3350550.0 )

I decided to follow that bounty and I am hoping that legendary member is not wrong about the project!
 
(Actually this method is not preferred, but as newbies you may have to go to methods like that until you get proper knowledge and experience about the industry! )

PS: Always check the project’s social media activities, website maintenance, Special announcements in ANN thread, Telegram group and their interaction with the investors or bounty hunters. If you smell something fishy do not hesitate and send a message here! https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1980983
I have many other information, but I will stop now. Feel free to ask anything, give any suggestions, give any corrections. I am more than happy to cooperate!
Cheers to all the hardworking bounty hunters out there!

Great thread and nice advices, especially if they are based on your own expirience.Although I have to say as was a bounty hunter, you'll not always encounter great projects even if you do the research on them. It's also like gambling at times.

It was nice to read through someone else's experience in terms of bounty campaigns. A lot of what you do is similar to what I do in terms of choosing the best bounty campaign. Thanks for providing the links and etc for us. Appreciate the input.

Its difficult to seperate the good bounty campaigns from the bad bounty campaigns. Study their website, whitepaper, roadmap & social media channels. If things sound good to you there is a high chance to have a decent project.

But you said so much, you still have not introduced the exact method of how to choose a good bounty, you just listed some of your experiences, as well as several ICO rating websites, we already know these sites, and many ICO rating websites is not objective, they are likely to charge.

Thats was funny you hope that higher ranks are right about that said ICO so you are relying based on their judgment? Maybe you should learn how to do your own research that are not based on ICO review sites because for sure you will get scam exit scheme.

I do most of my selection of bounties on bitcointalk forum and others on bounty ox. Both sites have bounties that are scam so what I do is to be vigilant in making choice of one.

And do the search more, because some bounties today are scam.

I also noticed that recently they began to promote scam campaigns. Can't say wilfully or not but it's fact.
So i decided to stay away and not ruin my "reputation".

Yes and sometimes good projects pay very less using the stake calculation as a justification.

Take a look at the current bounty section, where all are scams and shit, you can't find any valuable bounty, don't waste time, learn more trading skills is more important.

As a new person in the world of bounties, I have read posts about certain bounties that are scams and how to check it. This posts made my checking a lot more easier because I would definitely watch out for those bounty companies and the tips given in this post. Very thankful for this.

2016 was the year there are many legit projects and people have earned much with bounties.

But now the trend has changed and ICO projects and bounties became a place of scammers that are looking to earn easy money from their investors and wants to have free advertisement by scamming participants.

To be sincere, I select my bounties these days based on instinct. I pay less attention to whitepaper since the day I saw freelancers offering whitepaper writing as service. The truth is that scammers become smarter about their wicked acts day by day, from website, whitepaper, to roadmap and ICO ratings, making everything look real. Earning in crypto has never been easy including bounties.

Great article, and I look forward to the second part of article.
