All rewards are at the discretion of Lincoln Network and its affiliates, the types of rewards as outlined for each BIP is to be used as a guideline since such programs are difficult to run, we can't pay individuals subject to sanctions, and we will require KYC/1099 info for rewards, individuals will need to identify themselves to Lincoln Network in order to claim the bounty, however, Lincoln Network will not disclose the identities of individuals publicly.
Funds are allocated to bounties 100% by community members via crowdfunding. All funds are earmarked by their donors to the BIP(s) of their choosing during the donation process.
If bounty conditions have not been met due to the successful merging of the BIP, or it's been 2 years since a bounty for that BIP has been placed or claimed, donors will be contacted with the opportunity to redeploy their bounty to another BIP. If the donor does not respond within 1 month, funds will be generally redistributed among other active BIP Bounties and/or general support for BIPbounty.org.
