"Hey Siri, put out a request to anyone in the Barcelona area for a weekend apartment rental at $100 a night and let me know who replies".
You might already know what it's like to go on an Air BnB vacation or take an Uber up town, but for Founder Mark Beylin, the existing social contracts implicit to these transactions can be extended in ways we've never thought of before. Bounties are a new form of decentralized technology allowing any person to incentivize a specific activity, and crowd source it's outcome for a reward.
From conserving rainforests to hailing uber drivers, in this cast me and Mark discuss:
What a bounty really is and why it's important
The evolving world of building companies and VC models at Consensys and beyond
Where do we go from here, and how anyone can understand smart contracts
