Quick start guide for solution seekers


This guide assumes that you have a task that you need a solution for. An example for such a task is writing an extension to some open source software. It leads you through the process of specifying a task, adding incentives, possibly paying the person who solved the task, rating that person, and more. The instructions are according to the specification of the URN X-trade, version a.0.1.

The examples are associated with the following sample process:

  1. Alice specifies a task for whose accomplishment she's willing to pay for.
  2. Lisa adds additional financial support.
  3. Bob starts working on a solution.
  4. Bob submits the finished solution.
  5. Alice and Lisa pay Bob.
  6. Alice rates Bob, Lisa rates Bob, and Bob rates Alice and Lisa.
