First: What Is App Mining?

App Mining is a novel economic system created by the Blockstack community that rewards teams that build apps people want. Each month up to $1,000,000 is paid out across every Blockstack app team enrolled in the program, based on their app’s impact on the ecosystem. We believe that this economic system can grow well beyond where it is today.

  • Improve App Mining registration funnel, developer tools, admin tools, and marketing automation. 

  • Help build a long-term dedicated design, engineering, growth, and operations team.

    • Prioritize initiatives to achieve company goals and KPIs.

    • Exemplify strong organization and attention to detail.
