During the Status Townhall #21 in Prague, I announced two development bounties which I am personally funding. With these, I’m following Cryptowanderer’s proclamation of how Status should “buidl”: By building Status for ourselves, we create tools which are also useful for the people we connect to. Moreover, I see these bounties as a continuation of Oskar’s brilliant SITG series. I amended the series title from “Experiment” to “Implementation” to emphasize my longing for fast progress.
The intention behind the two development bounties is to improve the security and UX of the Status mobile app. The bounties are:
Reward: 123’456 SNT
General use case (building for others): Implementation of an additional factor besides the current single password increases the security of the assets in the Status wallet.
Finance use case (building for us): The four-eye principle for payments is enforced. In specific, the first person records the payment in Status. The second person can quickly pick up the payment on a second device, review and approve.
Deliverable: Implement a user-friendly two-factor authentication in the Status mobile app, where the second person may control the second factor. At least ETH and SNT transfers need to be in scope. The solution should be pushed to a Status release and become available to everybody.
Reward: 111’111 SNT
General use case (building for others): Subscription to services are enabled.
Finance use case (building for us): Repetitive payments can be automated.
Deliverable: Implement a user-friendly way to subscribe to services in the Status mobile app where the subscriber has to enter the payment information only once, and then payments go out periodically. The subscriber can cancel the subscription at any point in time. He can set the period between the payments by defining the number of days until the next payment. At least ETH and SNT transfers need to be in scope. The solution should be pushed to a Status release and become available to everybody.
If the above specifications cannot be met by the end of November 2019, the bounties are paid out to the creator(s) of the implementations which are closest to the specifications.
