How to take part in the weekly protocol revenue sharing

The contributors' contract receives a certain number of weekly emissions from the minter. The total number of tokens sent to the contributors' contract depends on how many votes have been made during the week to contributors in the contributors' contract.

The tokens sent to the contributors' contract are distributed amongst contributors with respect to how many votes they get.

To get votes, contributors help businesses on our marketplaces out with various gigs: customer support, business onboarding, extension building, virtual try-on tech for apparel merchants, virtual measurement tech for tailors, etc.

Anything that can help businesses out on the platform like starting a social media channel or newsletter to keep users up to date about what is going on in the PaySwap ecosystem or what types of businesses have launched on the platform, launching a different web/mobile app for PaySwap - one more customized to a specific type of business/use-case for instance, etc.

This can be a great way for open-source projects to get some funding by helping businesses on the platform understand and use their products or by building software specifically for PaySwap businesses.

The more a contributor helps businesses out on the platform, the more votes he/she can receive from them (or from the community) in the contributors' contract, and the bigger their share of the weekly emissions.
