You have to be REALLY good at coding and have enough dedication to do bounty stuff. If you write bad code, you don’t really have a problem. If you’re being PAID to write code, then you can’t just do it badly. I also know communication is key; you get rated on that. That’s why I haven’t applied for any bounties; I am a noob at coding I need to get better at programming. I also don’t have a good way to communicate and I don’t have the level of dedication required for bounties.
I’ve done my fair share of bounties (~80K cycles) and some of them are just mentally draining. I remember there was this one poster who kept breaking the code in the repl (I made the mistake of sharing it with them early on), and this other poster who requested me to actually make marketing materials for the product in order to receive the money (that wasn’t part of the original scope). I stopped doing bounties after that.
To be successful in bounties you pretty much had to either constantly check the bounties page or scrape it for new bounties (this is what I did). The easy ones get picked off fast.
I don’t know… I would consider myself good but not really really good
I don’t know about the first one, honestly you only need basic knowledge for some of the smaller ones. The second, definitely, you can’t take on a bounty and then just give up or decide you don’t have the time or something like that.
