BitJobs: A Proposed Addition to Mike Hearn's Bitcoin Crowdfunding App Lighthouse
Been thinking about Bitcoin and crowdfunding a lot lately. BitJobs This is basically a way for a community to come together and say this project needs to be created or this action needs to happen. Right now the crowdfunding model may actually be the reverse of how it should work. With this model, the community acts as a normal employer. They post something like a classified ad saying we need someone to do this work. People then apply for the position and the donors can choose someone based on their skills/salary requirements/etc. This helps make the fact that Bitcoin is really a decentralized autonomous company more obvious. There are plenty of things people could do to improve bitcoin's price. This is a way to Bitcoin, as a DAC, can hire people to complete these tasks.
Someone posts a project they want to see completed. This could be anything from perhaps funding someone to spend their time working on treechains to having someone create a video targeted a specific group of people who could benefit from using Bitcoin. Basically the kind of work people would do if Bitcoin was an actual company.
People pledge to donate to the idea if they like it.
As pledges accumulate, the prize for completing the project gets bigger.
People post their applications and salary demands to the job.
Job search runs for certain period of time. When it ends, funders vote on all applications.
Applicant with the most votes is awarded the job. Funds are placed in escrow. The funders could either vote on an arbitrator or use BitHalo-esque self-funded escrow.
This could obviously also be useful outside of just Bitcoin as a DAC. Perhaps it could help create a situation where the customers are actually the bosses of certain businesses/companies? Share your thoughts on this. Thanks.
