Excellent Proposal!

I think encouraging engagement from community is hands down the best way to grow protocols. It just creates so many positive reinforcement feedback loops. It’s really the utility/tech + the community that ultimately equals success IMO. Gotta have both.

Saddle has been doing a great job I think of making this a reality and this initiative will only further support this. Love it!

It’s a good offer, I like it. This is a good incentive to start developing and growing together with Saddle. Many good participants have already shown what they are capable of. It’s a cool idea to give them motivation to participate more in protocol life. I think many people will be more than satisfied with this. Excellent conditions for such a market.

@emac Does it necessarily have to be one person? it can be two? me and my friend have worked together on MakerDAO and currently on API3.
