If I was a developer I would not want to do a lot of work only to find that another developer has thrown something together quickly just to claim the bounty early and make all my time a waste even though I had a better solution.
It does not make sense to raise money with Kickstarter and then send that money to Bountysource. Bountysource is an alternative to Kickstarter, not a step "further down the chain". The idea is that the bounty itself is publicized, and if people want to fund it, they send money directly to Bountysource.Quote
Would it be worth starting a crowd fund on Kickstarter or Indiegogo to get together an initial pot of cash?
The only way bounties will work is if enough people know about them. There are already funded bounties and requests for funds starting to show up in the new Bounties forum. If you could publicize this it would be really helpful!Quote
For that reason, I would be happy to help with this - putting together a video, doing a bit of pr etc.
