[October 2021] Open Web Sandbox Rewards and Opportunities

Open Web Sandbox Full List of Rolling Rewards October 2021:

Below is a list of the rolling rewards for the Sandbox for the month of October. For detailed instructions on how to post rewards and how to claim rewards please see: The Sandbox SputnikDAO Guide for Claiming Rewards

Note 1: For the tasks included in the list below there is a monthly limit of 300 USD reward per contributor per month.

Note 2: We tried to make the list of rolling rewards posted below as detailed as possible. If you have any additional ideas or suggestions regarding the list, please contact one of the Sandbox moderators. There is always room for new suggestions! This means that we want you to be creative and to feel free to generate your own independent contributions or initiatives! We do have two conditions for it: 1. discuss it with moderators before you start and 2. make sure it brings value to the NEAR ecosystem!

Please feel welcome to schedule a meeting with our moderators if you come up with a new idea of contribution and we will accommodate your insight and discuss the appropriate reward.

Note 3: {For the tasks OUTSIDE the list below}
If you have decided to work on the task that isn’t present on the list below, please contact one of the OWS moderators (@vrdoingthings @Sofia_Alum @Jacopo) who will be happy to chat with you and explore further opportunities! To ensure your work is rewarded in the best possible way after completion, you need to get approval BEFORE you start working on the task/initiative! To minimise confusion and information asymmetry, we strongly advise you to share your working plan with us before incurring any costs. The OWS will NOT compensate any reimbursements in retrospect.

Note 4: Please limit your claims to ONE claim per month. If you want to request a reward for something you did after your first claim is approved, you will have to wait until the next payout period.

Note 5: While creating a post for the payout on the forum, make sure to include the relevant month in the topic according to the provided template. Otherwise, your DAO proposal will be declined.
