I want to check if an idea I've had is against any rules, or if there are unknown pitfalls...
I work for one of the companies developing an opensource blockchain stack. The community has a stack exchange in beta and are doing great (steadily growing participation / high quality).
However, because my company has some resources and wants to support / encourage opensource contributions to this knowledgebase our ecosystem depends on, we've thought about offering crypto bounties on top-upvoted questions.
If users want to participate, they put their public wallet address in their bio. Then, e.g. we query the top upvoted answers on a monthly basis, and we send the top contributors some cryptocurrency as a prize.
So, this is entirely third party, except insofar as it relies on pre-existing functions like the ability to voluntarily put info in your bio.
Does anyone more experienced with Stack Exchange know if this may violate a rule, or if it can be gamed in some way I can't see?
Thanks, and really love SE.
