While a number of software developers work on the Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP) framework, SLP devs are still looking for other contributors to help foster the protocol’s ecosystem. In order to help bolster SLP development, the simpleledger.cash website has published requests for bounties worth a couple of thousand dollars in spice token and the stablecoin USDH.
Simple Ledger Protocol Bounties
The SLP universe is growing fast and there were a lot of developments in 2019 including the first Simple Ledger Protocol developer meeting at the end of the year. A few days after the first SLP dev gathering, the official Twitter account tweeted a request for people to complete six different bounties that will help galvanize the project’s foundations. Two out of the six bounties are currently “in progress” and four of the projects are marked “open.” There is $2,500+ worth of honestcoin (USDH) available between five bounties and one project paying 500,000+ spice tokens as well.
The first project is called “SLPB-1: Smart Contracts for SLP Minting” and it is paying 500+ USDH for the bounty’s completion. The task was created by BCH and SLP software engineer James Cramer and it involves building at least one or more smart-contracts that can provide extra security to token issuers. The work must also “allow token issuers to specify a maximum mintable supply cap for their token,” the bounty’s description notes. Because the initial bounty says 500 USDH, “subsequent bounties may expand upon this initial work.”
Other bounties include performing integrity checks in slp-list library, create SWIG CMake targets for gs++ slp_validator, integrating the SLP Postage Protocol into the Electron Cash SLP Edition wallet, make SLPDB use ACID transactions, and optimize *InsertReplace operations in SLPDB. Each project’s link contains the requirements needed to complete the tasks as well as resources. For instance, the SLPB-1 bounty has a few specifications and assets covered in the bounty description including tools like SPEDN, the SLP Specification, Cashscript, and the Licho Last Will Covenant.

“And here we have the first SLP transaction created and sent via bitcoincashj,” Pokkst tweeted. In addition to the development, BCH supporters have noted that SLP tokens saw record trading volume in December. Semyon Germanovich, the founder of the SLP exchange Cryptophyl, explained that December trade volumes on the exchange outpaced the last four months combined.
“It’s amazing to see so many new users entering and learning about Simple Ledger tokens and Bitcoin Cash,” Germanovich said.
