taking inspiration from https://gov.yearn.finance/t/proposal-add-a-bounty-for-proposing-yips-that-are-implemented/3337
The ZEIP process accommodates any proposals by members of the community, but up to know the majority of the proposals came from the 0x Labs team.
In order to incentive participation and proactive proposals across the community-owned stack (smart contracts, Mesh etc), it could be interesting to introduce a bounty for the members who open and champion ZEIPs until a successful implementation (even if they are not the ones actually implementing it).
There are a few things that need to be taken into account:
- we should probably restraint somehow the type of ZEIP that would benefit from this bounty. The process is off-chain so it could create strange distortions (for example, propose regular not meaningful change in parameters). Perhaps limiting for now to core proposals (smart contracts)?
- The ZEIP process is administered by the 0xLabs team for now, which should most probably be exempt from this bounty.
