We often receive questions from Bounty Hunters asking about how they can earn more by completing article bounties.
Below are some guidelines from our Reward Distribution manager Bryant Holland.
There must be almost zero plagiarism. A sentence here and there that is copied from the website, one page, whitepaper, etc. is fine if it is stating a specific fact about the project. But everything else in the article must be unique and of original thought.
Similar to what is mentioned above, each article should offer a unique and interesting viewpoint. The whole point of writing articles is to reveal different perspectives on the project so that everyone can relate to it. Articles that cover the same material that is on the website are not unique. For example, the token metrics and road map is important information to know for each project, however, it shouldn't make up even 1/3 of the article. This information can be found on the website. What can't be found on the website is what attracted you to the project.
Ease of reading
Each article should be easy to read. Each topic discussed should be in its own separate paragraph. The article shouldn't be one or two huge paragraphs. This is hard to follow and hard to read.
Spelling & Grammar
There should be very minimal spelling and grammar mistakes. You should proofread your article several times before publishing. Not many people want to get involved in a project after reading an article with multiple spelling and grammar mistakes. It is unprofessional and very easy to avoid.
This isn't taken into consideration that much for articles, but it is still a factor in determining the reward. If you wrote a good article, then it should receive at minimal a few likes and responses. If you think your article is really good, then you should be proud of it and want to share it on your social media accounts. Not only will this expose your article to more viewers, it could also earn you a better reward if you receive a larger engagement from your viewers! However, if you receive a large response from your viewers, but your article lacks in any of the factors posted above, then you will not receive a high reward.
