Hi there, long-time IOTA supporter here.
Over eight months ago, I believe it was May 2017, before IOTA’s public launch, I curated the Italian translation of the IOTA wallet, at the time we used a google sheet, before we switched to the new system.
I like the concept of bounties, it’s nice to contribute to a project you believe in, while receiving something in return for your time and work. @dominik thanked me for the quick and thorough translation, and assured me at that I would be given a bounty for my work, but to this day I have not received the bounty I was promised.
If I remember correctly, It was $200 worth of IOTA at a fixed $200 million market cap, a fact that Dom confirmed to me multiple times over the slack private chat. It’s now almost two orders of magnitude greater than that. I asked Dom several times before when the bounty would be paid, I was first told he was very busy and that he would do it over the weekend, but I had nothing to worry about, and it would be paid in full. Several weekends went by and I never received it.
Then I was told I had to wait for the foundation to be established. Five more months went by, I sent several more messages and email, but nothing. All in all I waited 8 months, but never received the bounty I was promised, and I never complained, publicly or otherwise.
I think I’ve been very patient.
So my question is: am I alone on this? Has any of you received the bounty you were promised?
I love this project, and I’ve always supported the community. Now that the foundation has been formally established, I hope the IOTA Foundation will honor its promises to the community, and that they will send the bounties that are owed.
@dominik or anyone from the staff, I’m going to assume good faith, and that you simply forgot, overwhelmed by everything that’s been happening. Please contact me in DM for proof of identify/translation and address.
