What is the Bounties Network?

The Bounties Network makes it easy to outsource any task, completed by top talent from anywhere in the world. Some examples of tasks we’ve seen so far are: code, marketing projects, social impact and everything in between. All payments are safe & secure thanks to Ethereum, and freelancers get paid as soon as the work they submit gets accepted. Put up bounties paying in any token, 100% fee free.

Why does MetaMask lock up?

Access to the Bounties Network will get locked by MetaMask if you have not used the network for a certain period of time. This happens because MetaMask automatically locks your account if unattended for some time. To unlock, simply click on the MetaMask extension and type in your password.

Transferring ETH to MetaMask

For most users: you can purchase ETH directly within MetaMask using the Coinbase widget. This is more convenient and doesn’t require you to create two accounts (assuming you already have a Coinbase account. If you don’t, please create one via Coinbase site)

Step 1

Click on the Metamask icon and enter your password

Step 2

Select “Ethereum Main Net” as your network

Step 3

Unlock your account by entering your Main Net password

Step 16

All done!

In case you cannot see the widget: you will need to buy ETH from an exchange using normal currency. Copy your MetaMask address by clicking on the large ‘...’ next to your account, select ‘Copy Address to clipboard’. Go to your exchange, click ‘Accounts’, and select your ETH Wallet then click ‘send’. Paste the MetaMask address in the box with the amount you’d like to transfer.
